During the start of his career, Salman Khan acted in the love story titled Love where he was cast opposite Revathy. Directed by Suresh Krissna, the film also starred Amjad Khan, Shafi Inamdar, Suhas Joshi and Rita Bhaduri. More than a decade later, Salman and Revathy crossed paths again in Phir Milenge (2004). But this time, Revathy was his director, along with a co-star, in the film that also starred Abhishek Bachchan and Shilpa Shetty.
EXCLUSIVE: Once Salman Khan arrives on sets, you feel there is a lot of life, recalls his Tiger 3 co-star Revathy
Looking back at her bond with Salman and the making of Phir Milenge, Revathy told Bollywood Hungama exclusively that working with him was very easy because there is mutual respect. “Salman has always given me a lot of love and respect,” she said. “He accepted Phir Milenge in like two days. He heard it and he was like, ‘Aap direct kar rahe hain toh main kar loonga’ (If you are directing the film, I will do it). It was so nice.”
Recalling the shoot, Revathy added, “He was so amazing. He had to shoot for 5-6 days. He was absolutely very cooperative and giving. Once he comes on the sets, you feel like there is a lot of life.”
Revathy will be reuniting with Salman later this year in the keenly awaited Tiger 3. Speaking about Salman’s stature in the film industry right now, she said, “That (Phir Milenge) was in 2004. Abhi toh bohat bade star ho gaye hain (Now he has become a very big star). It is very nice to see the growth of a person you like.”
Phir Milenge dealt with the issue of HIV and AIDS. It told the story of a woman who gets fired from her job after her company realizes that she is HIV positive.
This year, Revathy is also gearing up for the release of Jagjivan Ki Patni Ka Teesra Pyar. Directed by Rajesh Bachchani, the movie sees her cast opposite the late veteran actor Vikram Gokhale, who passed away in last November.
