Salman Khan who has always showered praises on the veteran actor Dharmendra, also shares a special bond with the actor. Such is the bond; sources inform us that the entire comeback plan for Dharmendra’s younger son Bobby Deol was planned plotted and executed by Salman Khan.

“Race 3 is Salman’s own production along with Tips Industries. Salman decides everything, including the two leading ladies — Jacqueline Fernandez and Daisy Shah (the latter in spite of the fact that the film trade has zero interest in her). When the role of the second lead actor was being considered, it was Salman who suggested Bobby’s name. Not only did he recommend Bobby, Salman made sure he was signed. Then began Salman’s motivational attempts to get Bobby’s career and physique out of its flabby phase,” says a source close to Dharmendra’s family.

The source further adds that the lazy Bobby hit the gym and got back into shape solely because of Salman.

“What Dharmendra and  Sunny couldn’t make Bobby do, Salman did it. If Bobby is back in shape, it’s all because of Salman. Dharamji can’t stop being grateful,” the source adds.

Even Dharmendra mentions about seeing a younger version of himself in Salman. “I’ve always seen many of my traits in Salman. He has been very close to my family and me. Now when Bobby is working with him I feel very happy. It’s like one of my three sons coming together,” says the veteran actor.
