Salman's art of getting late
Salman Khan may be down and out but the man’s sense of humour is intact. Sample this one.
The ex-chief minister of Maharashtra, Narayan Rane, was among the invitees at a trial show of the Salman starrer Tere Naam on Raksha Bandhan day at Film City, Mumbai.
While Rane, perhaps unaware of the delaying ways of the film industry, reached on time the film’s hero was late by 30 minutes, delaying the screening.
Frantic calls by the producer to the star prompted Salman to joke: "Please tell Rane Saheb that I’m delayed because I’m not driving as I’m not allowed to do so after the car accident. And my driver can’t drive fast because my dad has asked him to go slow lest I get involved in another hit-and-run case."
The message never reached Rane but even it did, he would have had a hearty laugh.
