Salman Khan, who is known for helping out newcomers, is now going all out for for Bilal Amrohi’s debut film with Pulkit Samrat. The Jai Ho actor will now accompany Bilal on a multi-city tour to promote his film O Teri. Bhai will be juggling his Kick shoot and O Teri promotions.
Says Bilal, “SalmanBhai is in Delhi right now. He has asked Pulkit and meto join him there, so he can promote the film with us. Bhai would be accompanying us on various city tours.”
When asked why Salman is doing so much to promote a film, “But then he is more than family to us. The Amrohis are very close to Salman Bhai and his family.”
“I call Alvira Khan (Salman’s sister, Atul Agnihotri’s wife) ‘Baby Maa’. I feel I have three mothers. My biological mother,then my Uncle Shaandar’s wife who has brought me up like her own child and Baby Maa. I am blessed, I guess,” he added.
“I deliberately chose a city where I had no family and friends, to learn acting. I was on my own in LA for six months. That helped me to grow up,” says Bilal who admits the O Teri project first went to his co-star Pulkit Samrat who is Salman’s raakhi-sister’s fiance.
Says Bilal, “It was Pulkit who came across the script. He took it across to Salman Bhai who immediately warmed up to the script and told Atul Agnihotri, ‘Bro-in-law, we have to make this film’. That’s how O Teri happened.”
