Anil Kapoor mentions Aishwarya Rai on Salman Khan’s Dus Ka Dum. Salman’s bemused expression is now a viral video
Anil Kapoor was promoting Fanney Khan on Salman Khan’s Dus Ka Dum when he mentioned Aishwarya Rai Bachchan. The crowd’s reaction left Salman bemused.
Fanney Khan is about a week away from release and Anil Kapoor is on a promotional spree for the film that unites him with his Taal co-star Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and also stars Rajkummar Rao. As part of the promotions, Anil took the film to his friend Salman Khan’s show, Dus Ka Dum.
Anil was accompanied by his on-screen daughter Pihu Sand on Salman’s show but Aishwarya and Rajkummar Rao were both missing. Earlier, Anil had promoted Race 3 on Dus Ka Dum with the entire team. Salman welcomed Anil with a lot of enthusiasm but before he could start the game, Anil asked if he can speak about Fanney Khan first.
Talking about the film, Anil said he plays a dad and his daughter is a big fan of Baby Singh. Salman obviously asked who is Baby Singh. Anil replied, “Aishwarya Rai... Aishwarya Rai Bachchan is playing Baby’s character in the film.”
Before he could continue further, the crowd started cheering uproariously, leaving Salman bemused. The video of this exchange is viral now.
Salman and Aishwarya dated years ago but the Former Miss World ended the relationship amid claims of abuse. She later married Abhishek Bachchan and the two have a daughter together, Aaradhya. Salman and Aishwarya never worked on a project together.
Meanwhile, Salman and Anil were recently seen together on Race 3. Talking about Anil, Salman said on the show, “Anil Kapoor is one of the most generous actors I’ve ever worked with. He has grown as an actor and as a human being. Anil and I have been friends since the start of our careers and I’ve always looked up to him for his acting skills and his contribution to this industry. He makes sure he is perfect on screen and also that the co- star is as comfortable as he/she should be. He really respects the work he gets. Anil has decided till the time he keeps on working, it will be his best and I’m sure such an actor will never be out of work.”
Fanney Khan, the remake of Dutch film Everybody’s Famous, releases on August 3. Aishwarya plays a popstar in the film.
