The death rumors of Arnold Schwarzenegger might have had us all shocked for a few seconds before we realized that they weren’t true but no one was more shocked and depressed than Salman Khan who stopped his shooting and made a few calls to some if his friends until he made sure it wasn’t true.
Salman Khan’s always been a fitness freak from times immemorial and he looked upon at Arnold Schwarzenegger as something of an idol. And when he heard that the big guy had died while he was shooting for his forthcoming movie Kick, he immediately stopped shooting for the film and made a few calls to his friends only to realize that the whole thing was just a rumor.
Incidentally at that moment he was shooting for Kick with a female body builder who knew Arnold through some friends and it was only when she confirmed that he wasn’t dead that Salman Khan and Sajid continued with the shooting.
Confirming this, a source from the studio says, “It was a funny scene that Salman was shooting when he got to know about Arnold’s death. Him and Sajid (Nadiadwala), both being avid bodybuilding fans, started making inquires with the female bodybuilder who called people in the fitness industry in the USA to check whether Arnold’s death rumors were true.”
