Salman overshadows Hollywood star in Germany
ABollywood A-lister’s stardom can leave even Hollywood celebrities behind. That’s exactly what filmmaker Paul WS Anderson and his wife, actor Milla Jovovich witnessed when they ran into Salman Khan in Germany in 2011.
“We were staying at the same hotel as him and I was shocked because there was this huge crowd of fans inside the hotel. First I thought they were my fans and I walked out all happy. But soon realised no one was paying attention to me at all,” says Milla who will soon be seen in the sixth installment of the Resident Evil film franchise. She adds, “Suddenly this guy (Salman Khan) walks by and everyone is like Oh My God!! I see all of this happen and ask myself ‘Jesus Christ who is this guy?’ And then we get to know he’s the biggest Indian Bollywood star and he’s a huge deal.”
Milla confesses that she felt quite embarrassed at that time. “We were all prepared to sign autographs and no one was interested and it was funny,” she adds. Milla is now on a lookout for a chance to work with Salman. She says, “I would love that. (But) I don’t know about the singing and the dancing bit.”
