If Sachin Tendulkar holds the herculean record of having whacked a 100 centuries in international cricket, Salman Khan is known for striking Rs. 100 crore mark at box office more often than not. So one of them praising the other was a delight to hear.Forget all the hoopla regarding who’s a bigger celebrity of the two, Salman Khan, it can be said without a shred of doubt, hold Sachin Tendulkar in high esteem. It was apparent from the lavish praise that Sallu showered on Sachin at the Mukesh Ambani bash to celebrate the 100 centuries of the master blaster.
Before Salman stepped on the stage to talk about Sachin,
Aamir Khan had already expressed his wish to see another 50 centuries from Sachin. So when Salman’s turn came to pay his tribute to Sachin, the superstar notched that figure a little up, though not without his characteristic sense of humour.
This is what Salman Khan had to say when he stepped on the stage (English transcript on the next page):
I hope, main dua karta hoon ki yeh record toot jaye, ise bahut jald koi na koi tode, kyonki record bante hain tootney ke liye. Main Aamir ka record (box office collections of 3 Idiots) bahut der se todne ki koshish kar raha hoon. Toot hi nahi raha hai.
Aamir ne inko (Sachin ko) kaam pe laga diya ki aur pachaas (century) banayo...ab sabhi jab kaam pe laga hi rahein hai, toh ek do sau ho jaye kya, bhidu.
Sau ban chuke hai, sirk ek sau aur banana hai. Kitna time lagta hai yaar.
Salman also cracked a
Shahrukh Khan dialogue for Sachin.
But yeh suna ki Sachin ka record todna mushkin hi nahin, namumkin hai. Aur yeh don nahin main bol raha hoon. Bol bhi sakta hoon kyonki mere father ne hi likhi hai picture. Rights toh likhne ke unhi ke paas hain, toh itna toh haq banta hai.”
Then Salman addressed Sachin and asked him: “Sachin, kya lagta hai aapko, ki kya koi aapka record tod payega? Seedhe Seedhe boldo nahin tod payega.
Sachin: “I think issi room mein bathey huye hamare youngsters”.
Salman: “Chance hi nahin!”
Sachin: “Virat (Kohli) and Rohit (Sharma) are the ones...As long as koi Indian todta hai I don’t mind.”
Salman: “Thank you very much, God bless you, Sachin.”
