Salman Khan is quite the ladies man. And he doesn’t seem to be particularly grieving after breaking up with Romanian TV personality Iulia Vantur. And with the bevy of beautiful babes lining up for their time in the limelight in the Bigg Boss house for Season 7, Salman has the pick of the lot.
He directed his patronising ways to last season's Bigg Boss contestant Sana Khan. Luck and Sallu bhai smiled her way since she bagged a role in his upcoming film, Mental (now titled Azaad). She has lately kept a low profile from the public eye ever since her name was dragged into the murky kidnapping of a 15-year-old girl, but that's another story.
This season, Salman got a little flirty with actress Gauhar Khan on camera, right after she was done with a scintillating performance, by calling her beautiful. Sallu said, and we quote: "You'd be wasted in the Bigg Boss house; you should be coming home with me."
Seriously, that line would sound A LOT creepier on a sleazy casting agent, but since it's Sallu, we're going to let it slide.
Hazel Keech of 'Aa Ante Amlapuram' fame, danced to the lilting 'I Love You' number from Bodyguard (where she played a supporting role). And that's when Salman came cycling in with a bouquet of flowers, though the exchange wasn't quite as charged. But then again, you had Kapil to hit on the unsuspecting item girl, who's still learning her Hindi.
Elli Avram, the actress-model from Sweden, had Salman humming 'Aye Gulbadan' from Professor (1962) when she made her entry (with a stuffed Kermit the Frog in tow). We can imagine how the newcomer from the yet-to-be-released Mickey Virus would have elicited that response. It must have to do with her resemblance to his ex-girlfriend Katrina Kaif.
He also made a naughty pun on 'newcomer' with a 'kamar' (waist), which Elli probably only pretended to understand. Not to mention his school-boyish delight as he coaxed her to say the desi exclamation of "Oye" in four different ways.
With all the entertaining banter happening before the cameras, we wonder if it's only a matter of time before Salman plucks these three out of the Bigg Boss house and plonks them right into a movie set. Or sets.
Well, only time will tell. For now, let's just kick off our slippers and enjoy the seventh season of the show.
