Slumdog Millionaire child actor Mohammed Azharuddin Ismail made a wish, and the Gods fulfilled it for the boy who went through much domestic Salman Khan with his fan, Slumdog... kid Mohammed Azharuddin Ismail. More Pics
upheaval recently when his shanty in Bandra's Garib Nagar slums was demolished and his family was dishoused.
What was Azhar's wish? To meet his idol, Salman Khan. It happened at the R K Studio on Thursday. Azhar, dressed as Salman in Partner, came wearing a vest and the macho star's trademark bracelet. The boy had apparently practised getting the man's moves, style and mannerisms right. He was, after all, going on Salman's new game show with two other child stars — Darsheel Safary of Taare Zameen Par and Tanay Chheda of Slumdog fame. This is how the meeting went:
Azhar (awestruck, feeling Sallu's muscles): How did you get this body?
Salman: Murghi khata hoon. Tu khata nahin hai? Ki tu murghi palta hai? (This was in reference to Azhar's pet hens Salman read about in BT. The birds are now dead and Azhar doesn't enjoy chicken anymore.)
Azhar: My favourite film is Tere Naam. And yours?
Salman (smiling): Andaz Apna Apna. You seem to be quite romantic, Azhar. Which half of Tere Naam did you enjoy?
Azhar: Second half. Mere dil ko chu gaya.
Salman: Accha? Do you have a girlfriend? Get one and get married. Have babies.
Azhar: But why are you not married?
Salman: Abhi toh main bachcha hoon. Jab bada ho jaunga, shaadi bhi kar lunga. But what do you want to do when you grow up?
Azhar: I want to be Salman Khan!
Salman: Uske liye bada jigar chahiye. Hai ki nahin?
Azhar: Bana lunga, abhi toh main bachcha hoon!
