Five-year-old Suzi Ahmed Khan from Bahrain has ‘Bigg Boss’ Salman Khan wrapped around her little finger or should we say Rapunzel tresses. She was in Mumbai from March 31 to April 8. During that time, she chilled out at the actor’s Karjat farmhouse. Last Sunday, the two besties went dirt biking. He’s also given her his signature silver turquoise bracelet and she sits on his lap between shots.
Well, who’s Suzi? She’s a die-hard Sallu fan who sobbed her heart out while watching the climax of Kabir Khan’s ‘Bajrangi Bhaijaan’ which had her idol playing a good Samaritan who crosses the border illegally to take an eight-year-old mute girl home to her family. On July 20, Suzi’s mother, Madiha Arai, posted a video of her daughter crying and muttering, “I love you Salman Khan… I love you,” in the theatre. Within a month, the video went viral with over 900 thousand likes and over 10 million views. When Salman was told about the post, he watched it too and it was love at first sight. He tweeted to the hazel-eyed beauty saying, “I love you too!” ‘#DontCrySuziSalmanLovesYou’ began to trend worldwide and in the same week, the 50-year-old actor whose love for kids is known to all, went out of his way to get in touch with the little girl.
The two finally met and Sallu instantly decided that Suzi was the perfect fit to play his daughter in his upcoming wrestling drama. Salman, who had already begun extensive prep for the film, informed his director, Ali Abbas Zafar, and Suzi had bagged her first film, just like that! When Mirror got in touch with Suzi’s mother in Bahrain, she informed that her child is not allowed to speak about her film, but would happily share her love for her favourite actor. “I love Salman Khan, I want to marry him so that he can be my husband. He is chicken Salman,” she prattled enthusiastically.When asked what ‘Chicken Salman’ meant, she revealed that just like Salman, she loves anything chickeny. “Chicken paratha, chicken masala, chicken tan doori, chicken Salman,” she rattled off between giggles. And what else does she like besides chicken and Salman? “Dance, I love to dance,” she revealed. Suzi, who has already shot with Salman and Anushka Sharma, is expected to return to Mumbai next week. She reveals that she has watched all of Bhai’s film. “More than a dozen times. And I love to sing his song from Bodyguard… Teri meri, meri teri, prem kahaani hai mushkil,” she croons before ringing off.
