Bollywood star Salman Khan is all praise for fellow actor Emraan Hashmi, saying that he was the most under-rated actor in the industry and that he liked him and his work.
Emraan has recently delivered a string of hits like 'The Dirty Picture', 'Jannat 2', 'Murder 2', 'Raaz 3'.
"Emraan Hashmi is the most under-rated hero. He should get his dues. He is giving hits after hits today. He is the most celebrated name. I like him and his work," Salman, who himself has delivered back-to-back hits like 'Dabangg', 'Ready', 'Bodyguard' and 'Ek Tha Tiger', told reporters here at the music launch of 'Ishkq in Paris'.
Salman was also seen praising and bullying actress Preity Zinta, who is the producer of 'Ishkq in Paris'. "She is a very good producer. It is a fact that she can never keep quiet. It is a very nice romantic film...I have seen the rushes and I liked it, " Salman said.
Preity also showered praises on the actor. "Salman is a good friend. He is a solid guy. Even when nobody was there with me during the court cases relating to IPL, Salman was the only one who stood by me," Priety said.
Preity revealed that Salman had helped her a lot in terms of music of her film 'Ishkq in Paris'. "He has taught us about music. He has been the inspiration behind the music," she said.
Prem Raj, who made his directorial debut with 'Main Aur Mrs Khanna' with Salman Khan and Kareena Kapoor in the lead, is directing 'Ishkq in Paris'. 'Main Aur Mrs Khanna' has flopped at the box office. "All I can assure is this film ('Ishkq in Paris') will be a good film. This film is nothing like 'Main Aur Mrs Khanna'. Though the film did not do well but he (director Prem Raj) did a good job," Salman said.
After the release of 'Main Aur Mrs Khanna' there were reports that Salman shares a cold vibe with the director. "I had also read that...but it was nothing like that. There was no enmity between us," he said. The music of 'Ishkq in Paris' was released by Salman, who was the chief guest for the event, who has also done a special song with Preity in the film. Releasing on November 2, 'Ishkq in Paris' stars Preity Zinta, Rhehan Malliek and french actress Isabelle Adjani in the lead. The film marks the debut of Preity as a producer.
