A Bollywood A-lister’s stardom can leave even Hollywood celebrities behind. That’s exactly what filmmaker Paul WS Anderson and his wife, actor Milla Jovovich witnessed when they ran into Salman Khan in Germany in 2011.
“We were staying at the same hotel and I was shocked because there was this huge crowd of fans inside the hotel. First immediately I thought they were my fans and I walked out all ah… No one is paying attention to me at all and what’s going on,” says Milla who will soon be seen in the sixth instalment of the Resident Evil film franchise.
She adds, “Suddenly this guy (Salman Khan) walks by and everyone is like Oh My God!! I see all of this happen and ask myself ‘Jesus Christ who is this guy?’ And then we get to know he’s the biggest Indian Bollywood star and he’s a huge deal.”
The 41-year-old actor says she was quite embarrassed with the incident. “That incident was quite interesting yet humiliating. We were all prepared to sign autographs and no one was interested and it was funny. We would turn up, pull-up at the hotel and literally more than 100 fans gathered outside the hotel. When we pulled up and got out of the car, no one was interested in us and it was so funny,” she adds.
Her husband, Paul Anderson feels Indian films are big in other countries. “Bollywood movies aren’t considered harmful in anyway. They are not pushing any western values. So Indian stars are huge in Germany,” says Anderson.
Following the incident, Milla now wants to work with Salman and says, “I would love that. I don’t know about the singing and the dancing bit. Though I’d have to …it will be my next training.”

And in Etawah, Being Human, on behalf of all artists who performed yesterday, has committed to fund 200 paediatric heart surgeries in UP (there is already a wait list of 81 children we have received who are being moved to Fortis Hospital Gurgaon and their surgeries will get done by month end and Being Human is in touch with local NGOs and hospitals for their lists also).

After successfully hosting four consecutive seasons of reality show “Bigg Boss”, Bollywood superstar Salman Khan will come on the small screen next year as the host of a new show based on social causes and says it will be different from “Satyamev Jayate”.
In 2012, his contemporary Aamir Khan launched the 14-episode talk show “Satyamev Jayate”, which highlighted issues like female foeticide, evils of dowry and malpractices in medicine.
“We are working on something which is different. It is not along the lines of ‘Satyamev Jayate’. We will have a lot more entertainment in it. We will rock next year,” Salman told IANS.
The 48-year-old, who had also hosted another reality show “Dus Ka Dum”, added: “The show that we are doing will change a lot of things. It’s a brand new show altogether, which will talk about social causes. I will be the host and this will definitely change a lot (of things).”
Currently, Salman is gearing up for the release of “Jai Ho!”, an action film set for a Jan 24 release.
