It really pays to be Salman’s girl

Mumbai, November 30: In this industry, where closeness with celebs and loyalties towards particular star camps holds as steady as a mound of quicksand, Salman Khan has more or less always been known to stand by his faithful friends in the face of adversity.

There was buzz that Salman gifted his ‘very good friend’ Asin an apartment in Mumbai, even recommended friend Zarine Khan to filmmakers, while promoting former girlfriend Katrina Kaif in Bollywood and gifting artworks to Aamir Khan.

This all-weather friend, however, is now being accused of showering undue advantage on another friend, Mahek Chahal, as she battles it out with fellow contestants on a TV reality show.

Salman apparently took this model, of Nayi Padosan fame, under his wings to teach her the ropes of making a successful career in Bollywood. There were earlier reports of how the model-turned-actress even accompanied Sallu on his outdoor shoots.

Currently a contestant on television reality show Bigg Boss, Mahek, according to former fellow contestant Pooja Bedi has turned into a ‘vulture’ and is ‘terrorising’ the other inmates in the house, all because she has the backing of Salman, who also hosts the same show.
