Salman Khan takes girlfriend Iulia Vantur for a car ride

Superstar Salman Khan was spotted travelling in his brand-new car, a Mercedes, gifted to him by Shah Rukh Khan, on Thursday night in Mumbai. The ‘Raees’ actor reportedly presented Salman with a newly-launched model of Mercedes-Benz as a token of appreciation for agreeing to do a special appearance in his upcoming film with Anand L. Rai.

While Salman occupied the passenger seat in the front, two ladies, reportedly his rumoured girlfriend Iulia Vantur and his ‘Dabangg’ co-star Sonakshi Sinha, were seen in the backseat. The trio were apparently returning from a friend’s party in Bandra.

Shah Rukh had done a cameo as magician Gogo Pasha in Salman’s Eid release ‘Tubelight’. It was a historic moment as the duo had come together on the big screen, 15 years after sharing screen in ‘Hum Tumhare Hai Sanam’ alongside Madhuri Dixit. And now, Salman is returning the favour by doing a special song sequence in the yet-untitled film.

Earlier this week, Salman and Shah Rukh, along with the ‘Tanu Weds Manu’ director, were spotted at a suburban studio where they discussed the shooting the song. It was then that Shah Rukh surprised him by presenting the swanky car, thanking him for taking out time from his busy schedule to shoot for the song.

“When Salman Khan came to shoot for the song, Shah Rukh surprised him by gifting him a brand new, luxurious car. Salman was shocked as he wasn't expecting this at all," Bollywood Life quoted a source as saying.

The song has been choreographed by Remo D’Souza who has left aside all his other commitments to focus on the special song which is being shot on a grand scale on a lavishly erected set. The movie also features Shah Rukh’s ‘Jab Tak Hai Jaan’ co-stars Katrina Kaif and Anushka Sharma, where Katrina will play a film star.
