Bollywood actor Salman Khan, known for his painting skills, has got hooked to another passion - horse riding.
The star's upcoming film Veer, which he has written, has many scenes where Salman rides a horse and the actor had to undergo rigorous training.
A source close to the actor said that Salman became so passionate about it that even when the shoot wrapped up, he would gallop around the sets on his horse.
"Salman and members of the crew Tinu Verma and Bharat Dabholkar would go for long rides post shooting hours. Even though he was tired by the end of the day, he would always dash away on his horse," the source said.
"It is not easy handling a horse. It required great strength and physical stamina and Salman was in top shape and would enjoy riding thoroughly. Post shooting all the actors were so relieved to get off their horses but not Salman," the source said.
