In his typical eccentric style, Salman pulls out one his paintings from a charity event only to freely gift another to his best friend Sajid Nadiadwala!
Few can really claim to understand what goes on in Salman Khan's head, but most people know that his antics are nothing short of eccentric.
Recently, the actor pulled out a painting he had donated to a fundraising dinner organised by Plan India Initiative (for the welfare of deprived children) saying that the bidding price of Rs 20 lakh didn't match his desired amount!
Days later, the actor freely gave away another one of his prized paintings to best buddy Sajid Nadiadwala.
Says a source close to Sajid, "Last week, Salman dropped by Sajidbhai's office with the painting.
A lot of Salman's friends have seen the painting and have been asking him to sell it to them, but Salman chose to give it to Sajidbhai, who was stunned!
He doesn't have a single painting in his office cabin, but for the first time Sajidbhai has put up Salman's painting in a prominent place.
It speaks volumes of the affection both have for each other."
Salman has been learning how to paint for the last one year and has a number of canvasses put up at his Bandra residence. Adds the source, "Salman and Sajidbhai go back more than 15 years.
Their first film together was Jeet, and since then they have made five films together including Judwa, Har Dil Jo Pyaar Karega, Mujhse Shaadi Karoge and Jaan-E-Mann."
Sajid and Salman's next film together is a Rs 55 crore mega project with international actors, which will be shot in Tokyo (Japan). There is also a buzz that the duo will be coming together to make Judwaa 2.
It is learnt that the script is under finalisation and it's unsure whether David Dhawan will return to direct the film.
Currently, Sajid is busy with his next release Heyy Baby! slated for July, directed by Sajid Khan and starring Akshay Kumar, Fardeen Khan, Riteish Deshmukh and Vidya Balan.
