Bollywood superstar Salman Khan's fanbase is endless and there's no denying to it. Akanksha Puri, one of the CALENDAR GIRLS, who is all set to make her big debut with Madhur Bhandarkar's film, is a huge fan of the star. It is because of Salman Khan that she took up acting.

When asked about her hot favourite from the industry, Akanksha Puri shared, “Like everybody, I have been a huge fan of Salman Khan and that's the reason I am an actor today. Since I was growing up, I used to always follow him and his movies. He has been and always will be my inspiration. I used to keep telling my family, please make me an actor so that I can also share screen with him, dance along with him. So, of course from there I got my keeda of acting and I wanted to be an actor.”

But ask if it's the bandwagon effect (since Salman Khan is ruling the roost right now and he is the uncrowned Godfather of the industry) and she says, “I have been genuine fan. My parents were bored of hearing it all the time and fed up of his name. They were after my life that if you take his name, we will rip you apart.”
 
Also introducing Kyra Dutt,  Avani Modi, Ruhi Singh, Satarupa Pyne, CALENDAR GIRLS is produced by Sangeeta Ahir and all set to release September 25, 2015.
