If I give one voice, the whole industry will come. Salman is a very nice person. I love him very much.’

I am also brave, it’s not like that, but we were shooting in a lake. For the first time I saw Salman like this, he used to be shy, even today he is shy. So suddenly the camera fell in the lake. The man jumped to remove the camera. He brought the camera from the depths of the water. I said man, this is very bold.
Regarding Salman, Dharmendra had said- ‘I had also seen Salman’s good dance in the first film, he is also a good actor and he is also a very emotional man.
