Suniel Shetty opens up about his heartwarming bond with Salman Khan
Bollywood veteran Suniel Shetty recently spoke about his close relationship with actor Salman Khan, stating that nobody knows the ‘Dabangg’ star quite like he does. Shetty has often praised the actor publicly, calling him a man with an absolute golden heart.
A testimony to Salman’s kind nature
During a throwback interview, Shetty recalled an incident when Salman got his bone marrow tested for a child who was suffering from bone marrow cancer. “It’s the most painful test and he never told anyone about it. He left, got tested, and came back,” revealed an emotional Shetty.
Salman has always been grateful for celebrity friends like Suniel who have stood by him in tough times. Speaking at an award show last year, the actor got emotional as he recounted a time when he was facing financial difficulties and Shetty gifted him an expensive shirt. Salman also revealed that he had his eyes on a wallet that he wanted to buy, which Suniel noticed and later gifted to him.
From launching Athiya Shetty to starring in Hera Pheri franchise
It was Salman who launched Suniel Shetty’s daughter, Athiya Shetty, in her debut film ‘Hero’ alongside Sooraj Pancholi. Suniel has also been an integral part of some of Bollywood’s biggest hits, including the Hera Pheri franchise, which he will soon be seen in alongside Akshay Kumar and Paresh Rawal.
Suniel Shetty’s stories about Salman Khan are a testament to the actor’s kind and giving nature. Salman has always been supportive of his friends both on and off-screen, making him an icon in the eyes of many.
