Superstar Salman Khan has completed almost three decades in the film industry. In all these years, Salman has not just entertained the audience but also launched several talents. In his recent appearance on actress Tara Sharma’s show, the ‘Bajrangi Bhaijaan‘ actor recalled a hilarious anecdote about how he landed his first ad when actually all he was trying to do was to impress a beautiful girl.

Filmmaker Kailash Surendernath not only mentored Salman in his initial days but also gave him his first break. On ‘The Tara Sharma Show’ Salman, recalling the amusing incident on how he bagged his first project, said, “I was swimming one day at the Sea Rock club and I saw this really beautiful, young lady walking past in a red sari. To impress her, I dived in the water and being such an idiot, I swam the whole length underwater. So when I came out on the other side, she was not there. Next day, I get a call from Far Productions, saying that they want me to do a cold drink commercial – it was Campa Cola, at that point of time. I was wondering, ‘How did this come about?’”

So the next day when young Salman went to meet Kailash, he came to know that the young lady who he was trying to impress was none other than the director’s girlfriend. And it was the same woman who had recommended Salman’s name for the ad after watching his impressive swimming skills.

“We were supposed to shoot that in the Maldives and they did want somebody who knew how to swim underwater. Me and Jackie’s (Shroff) wife Ayesha were the only two who could do those laps underwater. That’s how I faced the camera for the first time,” recalled the ‘Dabangg’ actor.
