Salman Khan either likes you or he doesn’t. And if you’re Preity Zinta, he clearly does. A lot. So, after he kept his earlier promise and appeared in a song in the actor-turned-producer’s film, Ishkq in Paris, he has now gone a step further. The actor has now agreed to unveil the music of the film at an event on Monday.

“It was unexpected. He took everyone by surprise when he agreed to be part of the event,” says a source. The director, Prem Soni, who has worked with Salman in the past in Main Aurr Mrs Khanna (2009), says, “Salman is seen only in one song in the film. Yet, he said he’d be more than happy to be at the event. It was actually Preity’s decision to invite him for the music launch.” We wonder if he might shake a leg at the event as well. Soni says, “Salman attending an event, on its own, is as entertaining as it can be. We’ve not planned anything more than that at this point.” Salman and Preity’s friendship, of course, goes back a long way. Back in 2008-2009, when Preity’s IPL team Kings XI Punjab suffered a major financial loss, it was Salman who offered her a helping hand.“Salman has always been a great friend. When I was facing a financial crisis during the IPL, he was the only one from the industry to offer help. Though I managed to recover from the crisis myself, he was a great support,” says Preity.
