Salman Khan to share stage with Elli Avram
Salman Khan is going to shake a leg with his most favourite contestant of the reality show, ‘Bigg Boss 7’ Elli Avram, the Swedish-Greek actress. During one of the episodes, Salman said Elli that she reminds him of ‘paach saal phele ki Katrina Kaif’. As long as Elli was inside the house, Salman was very kind towards her.
Elli Avram who debuted with the film, ‘Mickey Virus’ opposite Manish Paul also sang Bollywood numbers on Bigg Boss 7 when Sallu asked her to sing a song. Though she can’t speak Hindi fluently, she managed to sing `Tere bina jiya jaaye na` and `Hum dil de chuke sanam` on Salman Khan’s request.
Elli and Salman will groove at the grand finale on Saturday to the hit number ‘Mashallah’, which was picturised on Salman and Katrina Kaif from `Ek Tha Tiger`.
This won’t be Salman and Elli’s first performance together. When Elli was evicted, she grooved with Sallu on the song ‘Sathiya ye tune kya kiya’ from the film, ‘Love’. During the show, Elli very often used to refer Salman Khan as "Salmanji" or "Salman jaan".
Salman Khan’s liking for Elli gave rise to the rumor that the duo might end up getting married. Elli never took Salman Khan’s liking or the rumors about their marriage seriously.
Elii says, “I am grateful to Salman for every nice thing that he said. The biggest compliment he gave me was that I look more Indian than any other contestant in the house.”
She adds, “I don’t know why he was so nice to me. He is a big superstar. And his kindness meant a lot to me.”
Elli also adds, “I think he sensed that I was all alone in ‘Bigg Boss’ house. The only foreigner. He helped me feel comfortable in Bigg Boss by just the way he spoke to me. Of course, I soon became comfortable in there. I’ve learnt a lot of Hindi in there.”
When Elli was asked if she gets a chance to act alongside Salman Khan, the pretty actress replied, "That will be a dream come true".The grand finale on Saturday will also see performances by Armaan Kohli, Pratyusha Banerjee and Kamya Punjabi.
