So recently when the actor was asked, why he liked Sooraj so much, he said, "He is very straight. He will not mince words, he will not lie and he is gentle. He will not get offensive, is polite and very respectful."
As Salman started to talk about Sooraj, he immediately went on a flashback mode and started to reminisce this incident when he carried Sooraj on his shoulders during a Michael Jackson concert in Mumbai, India in 1996. He spoke about how he, Sanjay Dutt, Rhea Pillai, Sohail Khan, Arpita, Puneeth Issar, Aditya Pancholi and his wife had all gone to attend Michael show in India.
He told, "I remember there was Aditya (Pancholi), Zarina bhabhi (Zarina Wahab), Puneet Issar, Sohail was there who ensured that he went at 4 pm only and dug his foot in the stands and stood there only. Then there was Sanju and Rhea and there was Arpita and Sooraj who took turns to sit on my shoulders to watch the show."
He also revealed that whenever Sooraj would need him, Salman would always be present!
Check out some moments the two shared together...
