Vidya Balan once teased Salman Khan about the portrait of Katrina Kaif, who was supposed to look like him. The exchange took place a few years ago in Bigg Boss 10 when she came to promote Kahaani 2.
In a recent clip shared by a fan club, Salman told Vidya, the main painting is the doer and became Katrina’s portrait during the day (I paint and I once painted Katrina). Katrina said, who is this, I said, you. She said, it’s not me, it looks like Vidya Balan.
Exactly what is this (when did this incident happen), Vidya asked, as she passed out laughing. Salman said that it was some time ago.
He said, I do anything but mother-in-law not daughter-in-law (I want to say something but I do not have the courage), he said. However, a few seconds later, he said, Wow, it wasn’t a dirty picture (was it a dirty picture)? His joke was a play on the title of his film, The Dirty Picture, for which he won a National Award.
Salman said that his painting was based on a picture of Katrina taken by photographer JP Singhal but somehow resembled Vidya. Wow! My heart is mainly with you. He was referencing his popular dialogue from Kik, Dil Se Aana Hoon, not Samaj (I am at heart but hard to understand).
Vidya and Salman worked together in Nikhil Advani’s Salaam-e-Ishq in 2007. He was paired opposite Priyanka Chopra when he was taken in front of John Abraham.
