Did you know that Bollywood super-brat Salman Khan has turned into a painter of considerable repute? If you are still unaware of his latent talents, let us tell you that one of his paintings has recently sold for Rs one crore! It remains to be seen, however, whether the buyer was motivated by his love of art or simply sucking up to Salman.
At a recent Mumbai art auction organized by Ramola Bachchan for Plan India, a well-known charity, Salman Khan's painting was about to be sold for Rs.20 lakhs, which any novice artist would consider 'very good'! But Salman Khan was confident that his art was unique and extraordinary. So when Plan India seemed to accept the bid of Rs.20 lakhs, he walked onto the stage and pulled out his offering from the auction and waited for an opportunity to sell it for a better price.
It seems that Ramesh, an art lover, heard about Sallubhai pulling out his painting from the Bachchan auction and contacted the actor.
