Salman Khan gifts ‘Taj Mahal’ to Marigold co-star Ali Larter


Everyone is well aware that Salman Khan is an extremely generous co-star, especially to those he is fond of. So it came as no surprise when Sallu bhai decided to gift his English film co-star Ali Larter a gift. Salman is known to have developed a sweet friendship with Ali, after the two shot extensively for their film Marigold. In fact knowing Salman and his way with women, there were obviously rumours linking the two stars too. However Sallu’s choice of gift to Ali Larter was extremely interesting. Ironically Sallu gifted Larter the ultimate gift of love, a marble replica of the ‘Taj Mahal’. Well some girls have all the luck…


Sources claim that Ali was shooting with the cast of Marigold in Agra around the Taj Mahal and on seeing this beautiful monument which was a token of love by Emperor Shah Jahan for his queen Mumtaz, Ali was touched and wanted to take home a symbol of this monument or remembrance of this trip. Ali wanted a replica of the Taj Mahal and she wanted a pure marble replica. Unfortunately the marble replica was not available at the time and Ali was extremely disappointed. Well Sallu being Sallu could not bear to see his co-star disappointed and so he specially ordered for a marble replica of the Taj Mahal for Ali. Later when Ali was leaving the country he gifted her, this ideal gift. Surely Ali was extremely touched by this beautiful gesture and the beautiful gift. But hey needless to say that Katrina was not too happy after hearing about Sallu’s gift to Larter. So Sallu is there more meaning to gifting Ali the Taj Mahal or is it simply a sweet innocent gesture?

Meanwhile Salman is all geared up for the release of his first English film Marigold, where he plays a bollywood choreographer who helps an English actress who is trying to make her mark in bollywood. Salman has also recently signed Sajid Nadiadwala’s film titled ‘Sanki’ which means moody. Well the title certainly seems apt for the moody Salman Khan who is known for his erratic behaviour. Sajid too confirms that Salman will be doing a film titled Sanki and he says “The title comes from the script, but Sallu also lends himself to the title. Both the script and Salman’s character suit the title for the film.” Meanwhile Salman was also looking for a co-star opposite himself in Boney Kapoor’s film which is a remake of the Tamil super hit film Pokhiri. Deepika Padukone was approached for the role, but she supposedly was not too keen and finally turned it down. Jiah Khan was being considered for the role earlier, however an irrational statement made by the actress in the press robbed her of the chance of working with the likes of Salman Khan. Finally Ayesha Takia has now been finalized for the role.
