Sunil Shetty’s son Ahan Shetty entered Bollywood last year with his film Tadap opposite Tara Sutaria. In a recent interview, Ahan shared what it meant to him when superstar Salman Khan kissed Tadap’s poster at the premiere.
Well, it all happened when Salman Khan attended the premiere of the film in December and kissed the large poster of the film at the site before meeting the media. Suniel Shetty was touched by his gesture and ran over to offer him a hug. Fans praised Salman’s generosity after seeing the video of the incident become viral on social media.
In a recent interview, Ahan described the incident as a “dream come true” for him because he had been a Salman admirer ever since he was a child.
“I have looked upto Salman sir since I was a kid – I used to dance to his songs and take off my shirt. For him to turn around and kiss my poster is a dream come true,” Ahan told the publication..
Ahan also added that he believes Salman’s gesture was as good as his blessings. He added, “He gave me the blessings and I still can’t believe it.”
RX 100, a Telugu film, was remade as Tadap. Milan Luthria directed the romantic action film, which was premiered in theatres on December 3 of last year. However, the film did not perform well at the box office, grossing little under 35 crore, with several industry insiders blaming Covid-19 and bad word of mouth for the film’s lackluster performance.
Meanwhile, Ahan has since signed a multi-film deal with Sajid Nadiadwala’s production house. However, the exact timeline and other details about the projects are still under wraps.
