How Salman Khan's visa problems got Sajid Nadiadwala to spend Eid with his family in Mumbai

Salman Khan’s visa problems seem to have benefited the director of his upcoming film, Sajid Nadiadwala in a way. With the star’s visa initially getting rejected for his trip to UK to shoot his next, it provided the perfect window for Sajid to return to Mumbai from London to celebrate Eid with his family.

But with his paperwork being sorted out, Salman will take off for London today. The rest of the cast and crew have been working on the film on location since the last two weeks.

Says a source, “When Sajid returned to the city last week, it was assumed that since Salman’s visa had been rejected, the director had packed up and left. But that’s not true. He wanted to spend the special day in the company of his family.”
