That Salman Khan agreed to do a cameo for Hema Malini's TELL ME O KKHUDA is a known fact. What has just been revealed though is that cameo would be in a special song opposite Esha Deol and is supposed to be a major highlight in the film's narrative.
'Yes, Salman's cameo in for a specially designed song in the film. It was very kind of him to be a part of this song and that too at such a short notice,' says a source attached to the film.
The story goes that this impromptu decision was taken by the makers when they were recently shooting for the song in Mumbai. Hema Malini and Esha Deol got an idea to rope in Salman as a lucky mascot and they decided to give him a call and try their luck. To their pleasant surprise though Salman didn't hesitate for a moment and said that he was game for it.
'This was the day when he earned many more fans for himself,' continues the source, 'He is a very busy star and has multiple commitments to keep him occupied. Since he has so much respect for Hemaji and Dharamji, he reported on the sets within 30 minutes of getting the call. He came wearing a black suit and immediately asked Hemaji what he was supposed to do.'
Other than the fact Salman as well as Hema Malini represent two of the longest standing film families in Bollywood, they have also worked together earlier in BAGHBAN and BAABUL. Also, Salman and Esha have been paired together in NO ENTRY. Now it has to be seen whether Salman's lucky charm indeed works all over again for TELL ME O KKHUDA too which is finally ready for release now.
