How Salman Khan showed his affection for old pal Preity Zinta
Close friends Salman Khan and Preity Zinta bumped into each other at a celebrity cricket match in Ahmedabad on Saturday and were seen chatting and giggling away to glory. Being one of her BFFs, the superstar knew that the following day was the dimpled actress' birthday and he decided to spring a surprise on her — an impromptu birthday party. Preity turned 41 yesterday.
Preity Zinta tweeted this pic of hers with Salman Khan from her 41st birthday album
Says a source, "Salman was in Ahmedabad as the brand ambassador of his brother Sohail Khan's cricket team. They lost the match, but he made sure that Preity brought in her birthday in style. He quickly organised a private bash and they partied all night long."
Bobby Deol, who celebrated his 49th birthday last week, was also at the party along with Kriti Sanon, Sangeeta Bijlani, Omkar Kapoor, Varun Sharma, Riteish Deshmukh and Suniel Shetty. Preity also tweeted some pictures of the bash.
Salman Khan's bodyguards allegedly got aggressive with fans at the cricket match as they were jostling with each other to catch a glimpse of the star. "It was all chaos when Salman entered the stadium. One of his fans was trying to click his picture when his bodyguard pushed him aside and he fell on a table. A group of people was having lunch and the bodyguard asked them to vacate their table for Salman to sit," says an eyewitness.
Another source says, "The crowd was getting out of control, so his bodyguards had to do their job. But no one got hurt." Salman's manager denies the buzz and says, "Nothing as such happened."
Recently, a video showing one of Salman's bodyguards slapping a fan outside his Bandra house was leaked. The beefy men have earlier got into verbal wars with the media as well.
