Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Time Out - Sa­marth Goyal

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.”
