Shehnaaz Gill is all set to make her big Bollywood debut with the Salman Khan starrer Kisi Ka Bhai Kisi Ki Jaan. But the former Bigg Boss contestant almost spoiled her chances of doing her first Hindi film with the superstar. She narrated the funny incident when the team of the film visited The Kapil Sharma Show.
She said, “I was in Amritsar visiting the Gurudwara when I received a call from an unknown number. And I have this habit of blocking unknown numbers, so I did the same. Then after a few minutes, I got a message that Salman sir is trying to call me. Just to verify, I put the number on the Truecaller app and found out that it was actually Salman Khan calling me! I immediately unblocked him and called him back; it was then that he offered me the film and that’s how I got the film.”
Interestingly, Shehnaaz bagging a Salman movie also meant that her mother’s prophecy came true. Speaking at the recent trailer launch of Kisi Ka Bhai Kisi Ki Jaan, the actress shared, “When I went to shoot for my first music video, I was rejected. I was told, ‘Ye kaunsi bachchi leke aaye hai, we don’t want to shoot with her. Take her back.’ I came back and cried a lot at home, that I’ve been rejected. My mom told me why am I crying, one day I would be in a Salman Khan film. Sir gave me a chance and proved that mom’s words always come true.”
Directed by Farhad Samji and produced by Salman Khan Films, Kisi Ka Bhai Kisi Ki Jaan will be releasing in theatres during the festival of Eid on April 21.
