A few days back, Salman Khan threw a surprise by turning up at the music launch of the Pulkit Samrat-starrer Bittoo Boss. And now Pulkit — with whom Salman bonded big time at the function — is keen that the Bodyguard star watches his debut film before it hits theatres. However, Salman is too busy shooting for Dabangg 2 and Ek Tha Tiger.
“Yes, I am very keen that Salman Bhai watches my film but he is very caught up with his own films. Right now, we are putting in the finishing touches in terms of postproduction work, like background music. Once it’s complete, I intend to hold a special screening for him. And I really hope that he is able to take time to watch my film because he is busy shooting (Dabangg 2). I haven’t yet gotten in touch with him. Let us complete the film and then we will approach him,” says an excited Pulkit.
The 28-year-old actor-model, who rose to fame as Lakshya Virani in Ekta Kapoor’s Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi, plays a wedding videographer from Punjab in debutante Supavitra Babul’s film.
Ask him if he intends to take more help from Salman for his film and he says: “I don’t want to put too much pressure on him. He is a very busy star and it doesn’t look good if I expect so many things from him. The fact that he came for the music launch is a big thing for us.”
And lastly, how did things fall in place as far as roping in Salman goes? “Actually, I had showed him the songs and promos of my film. And he happened to really like them. So he instantly agreed to be part of the music launch,” Pulkit says. Producer Kumar Mangat’s daughter Amita Pathak also stars in the film that hits the theaters on April 20.
