Though Aasif Shaikh has been doing pretty well with his career headlining Bhabhi Ji Ghar Par Hain, a lot of the credit also goes to Salman Khan. We all know how our very own Bajrangi Bhaijaan has always lent a helping hand to his friends in need.
Aasif Shaikh opens up about how Salman Khan helped him when he was facing a rough patch in his career. He also talks about how his equation has evolved with the superstar over the years.
In an interview with Times Of India, he revealed, “My friendship with Salman Khan goes a long long way. It was the time when Salman’s first film Biwi Ho Toh Aisi and my film Yaara Dildara released. Since that time we have been friends. He is like a family friend. Salim uncle (his father) is very fond of me. He loves me a lot. Salman also respects and loves me a lot.”
He also added, “There are times when we don’t meet for months but whenever we meet we are on the same page. I really really appreciate Salman as he got me a couple of good films when I was going through a very rough phase. It’s a great friendship between Salman and me.”
It was back in 1995 when Aasif Shaikh shared the screen space with Salman Khan in Karan Arjun. Aasif is currently amassing all praises for his character Vibhuti Narayan Mishra on the show Bhabhi Ji Ghar Par Hain. The show also stars Shubhangni Atre, Rohitash Gaud, and Saumya Tandon in pivotal roles.
