When Salman Khan turned into a cook!
You have seen him as a lover lad, a tragic hero, the funny man and the action hunk. Now watch the shirtless wonder become a cook!
The director duo of Lucky, Radhika Rao and Vinay Sapru recently told us of an amusing incident about the bare-chested Khan of Bollywood. “It was the last leg of the shoot for Lucky and we were shooting at an ancient amphitheatre in St.Petersberg, Moscow” Radhika recollects
“The period for which we had booked the place had expired and we had to vacate the premises soon. So we were to shoot around a 24-hour schedule, from 7-to-7” she says remembering the gruelling schedule. “After calling it a wrap, we return to the hotel at 7 in the morning, all tired, hungry, & groggy. I went to the pantry to check whether I would grab something to eat and what do I see…?
“I see Salman cooking!” she says bringing on an amused expression. “As I sauntered into the room, he had his back to me. I got beside him, he saw me and asked, “You must be hungry…” “I am starving!” I replied. To which he said, “You go and rest, I'll get something for you guys” he said and got busy with his pots and pans. “Okay” I said and left. I thought to myself that he at best would arrange for some milk and bread. Crutching my empty tummy, I went to my room and crashed. Just as I was falling to sleep, the phone rang and Vinay and I were called for breakfast. I got to the dining table in the main hall and seated myself. And man, was it a sight or what…!
“He serves us eggs!” Eggs? we ask, “Yes and he added caviar to it! It was so yuck!” she says cringing her nose. 'Caviar in eggs! 'That must have been the most intoxicating breakfast you have had!' we laugh, “You bet!” Radhika smiles. So did they bother telling him that the food tasted like evil…”Not really. Just like us, he had been shooting too, yet he puts in that extra effort & cooks for us. We didn't have the heart to tell him that that it wasn't tasting all that good” she says good naturedly and adds “But that was the best breakfast we ever had! How often do you get the superstar of India to fix you a breakfast at 7!” 'Not very often' we agree.
