      It so happened that an audience member drew comparison between his life and Sunil Dutt's, considering the way their sons had went through troubled times. That's when the Khoon Bhari Maang actor walked down the memory lane and shared a trivia.

      Kabir revealed that he and Sunil Dutt were asked to do a film titled Kurbaan in which they were supposed to play two leads in a village, who clash with each other over their ideologies. At the same time, the producers also wanted a young actor in a smaller role and an actress so that they can add some songs in the film.

      That's when Kabir Bedi suggested Salim Khan's son Salman's name. He was brought on board but his newfound stardom flipped things entirely for Kabir Bedi and Sunil Dutt.

      Bedi recalled, "Bollywood films in those days particularly were shot in a sort of instalment plan. You know, they'd shoot a few days every month and it would keep going on. It used to take about two years to make a film and while the shooting for Kurbaan was going on, four of Salman's films released and became superhits. Immediately, the scenes in our film were converted into a love story, and Duttsaab and I became the background music."

      However there's no bad blood between Salman and Kabir with regards to this. In fact, the superstar had even helped launch Bedi's book in July this year.
