Salman delights visually impaired fan with surprise visit

Mumbai: Salman Khan is known for his generosity and the superstar surprised a visually impaired fan by paying him a visit on the sets of a reality TV show.

The 50-year-old “Bajrangi Bhaijaan” actor met Jugpreet Bajwa, a contestant on the music show “Sa Re Ga Ma Pa”, when he realised that the show was being shot next to his film shoot location.

“It was a complete surprise. I was practicing for this week’s shoot and it seems Salman sir wrapped up his work at a set close by and was heading to his vanity van when he heard that the rehearsals of the show on the set is right next door,” Jugpreet said in a statement.

“He just walked in and whispered in my ear and hugged me tight… I was so shocked and happy that I just took his blessings. I am on top of the world having met Salman Khan. I felt special, that among everyone else, he chose to meet me,” he said.

The contestant said that he was “blessed” to meet the actor, who also wished to work with him in the future.

The Zee TV show features music composers Pritam Chakraborty and Sajid-Wajid and singer Mika Singh as mentors.
