It’s a known fact that Salman Khan has many friends in the industry. But how many among them are really close to him?
At the trailer launch of Freaky Ali, which was held in Mumbai on Sunday, Salman opened up about the matter.
“I have a lot of friends in the industry, both male and female,” said the actor. “But I have counted Sanju (Sanjay Dutt) as one of my closest friends since childhood. I am also close to Shah Rukh Khan and Aamir Khan.”
The actor was in a rather jolly mood and sarcastically suggested that perhaps the audience would be more interested to know who his female friends are. “You’re finding these names boring right? Should I give you names of some girls?” the actor jested before saying, “Katrina Kaif is my best friend.”
As it happens, Salman’s ‘close friend’, Katrina’s film is releasing alongside Freaky Ali on September 9. When asked about this, Salman said, “Her film (Baar Baar Dekho) is releasing with ours (Sohail Khan’s Freaky Ali). I am going to be there to cheer for both the premiering films.”
When asked about his take on the box office clash between the two films, the actor said, “It’s not a clash unless you portray it as a clash. We want Katrina and Sidharth’s film to do well just as much as ours.”
