Salman Khan and Sunil Grover have teamed up together for Bharat and well, it is really exciting to see them together. While Salman is playing Bharat, the titular role, Sunil Grover will play his friend Vilayati. In an EXCLUSIVE interview with Bollywood Hungama, Sunil revealed that it was not easy shooting with Salman at first because well, he was a bit intimidated by Bhai but Salman being Salman, made him feel comfortable by inviting him over for lunch.
He said, “Dheere-dheere comfortable ho gaya. You have grown up on Salman Khan’s films and suddenly itna comfortable nai hota.” But he said that because Salman is such a nice human being, it just was easy to work with him. He said further, “Wo space dete hai …dheere dheere easy ho gaya. (I got comfortable with him slowly. He gives space and lets you be so it got very easy after a while)”
He then recalled the incident when he was invited for lunch by Salman. He said, “Ek mauka aaya jab ..Film ki shooting ke dauran ….lunch break hota hai toh unke ghar se lunch aata hai … toh mujhe invite kiya lunch ke liye . Uske baad mai khud phoch jata tha lunch karne unke yahan..dheere dheere comfy ho gaya… (On one occasion while shooting for the film, I was called to have lunch with SalmanSir who gets his food from his home. After one occasion I went there on my own every day. Slowly I got comfortable being around a big star like him)”
