Salman Khan is one of the biggest stars of Indian cinema. His career spans nearly thirty years and he is getting unanimous love. The superstar now enjoys a huge fan following and has come a long way since his debut film Maine Pyar Kiya. But did you know, she once annoyed veteran actor Raaj Kumar during a party? Scroll down to know more.
Salman became a household name after the success of his film Maine Pyar Kiya, which was directed by veteran Hindi film director Sooraj Barjatya. The filmmaker organized a success party for the film. At that time many stalwarts of Indian cinema attended the party.
Noted actor Raj Kumar also attended the party. As soon as he reached the venue, he told Sooraj Barjatya that he wanted to meet the lead actor of the film. The filmmaker then introduced Salman to the veteran actor. As reported by News18, it was the Bajrangi Bhaijaan actor’s first meeting with the veteran star, and when Salman greeted him, Salman asked, “Who are you?”
Raj Kumar is known for his outspoken nature. When he heard this from Salman Khan, who made headlines with his very first hit film, he was shocked. Angry Raj Kumar told Salman“Son, go ask your father who we are.”
The superstar soon realized his mistake and apologized to her after the incident.
Though Maine Pyar Kiya was a defining moment in Salman Khan’s career, he found himself overshadowed by co-star Bhagyashree. During an earlier interview, the actor said that his co-star Bhagyashree got married, left cinema and took all the credit for the film.
Maine Pyar Kiya was based on a typical story of a rich man-poor girl romance in which love (Salman) and Suman (Bhagyashree) fall in love and endure family differences. The film was well received by critics and audiences alike, and went on to become the highest-grossing film of the 1980s.
