Yesterday we had reported that Salman Khan had walked the red carpet at International Indian Film Awards (IIFA) with a young girl. Well, the girl was none other than Narmada Ahuja, daughter of Govinda. Narmada happened to walk the red carpet with her 'Salman chachu', only by chance.
It happened thus. Govinda was running late at the Awards function and that's when Narmada asked her father if she could go ahead with Salman chachu, to the venue. And Govinda said she could.
It is a well-known fact that both Salman and Govinda are the best of friends. In fact it was Salman who had bailed out Govinda when he was at an all time low recently. Salman also gave Govinda a fresh lease of life with films like Partner and Salaam-E-Ishq.

Brazilian bombshell denies having affair with Salman Khan
For quite some time rumours have been brewing about Salman Khan’s liking towards the Brazilian beauty Bruna Abdullah who has Bollywood aspirations.
Bruna, a model and a VJ, has been spotted with Salman Khan on more than one occasion, fueling the speculation that there is something cooking between them. Though neither Salman nor Bruna spoke about the rumours, the Brazilian belle has at last broken her silence and denied having an affair with Salman.
Speaking to a tabloid, Bruna says she has met Salman only twice. In one of these meetings Katrina Kaif joined them. She goes on to add that Katrina Kaif is the only girl in Salman’s life.
Bruna says Salman’s interest in her doesn’t go beyond promoting her in Bollywood. He and Katrina have been giving Bruna tips to learn Hindi and she would definitely look forward to taking their advice before signing any Bollywood film.
To dispel any remaining doubt, Bruna comes clear that she has a steady boyfriend from last two years. The lucky man is a Mumbai restaurateur.
There is always a stiff competition among the three heroes in Bollywood - Aamir Khan, Salman Khan and Shah Rukh Khan for the number one spot.
In 2011 Salman Khan has now raced his way to the top â€“ not in films but in a different way. Salman has paid an advance income tax of five crore rupees and has therefore become the number one tax payer among Bollywood heroes.
Salman Khan may have won quite a few awards for his all time blockbuster film, DABANGG, including best actor, but the irrepressible super star is not interested in receiving awards or honours.
It may come as a surprise to many that Salman Khan, despite participating wholeheartedly in award functions and also accepting awards (unlike his good friend Aamir Khan) for films, has in no uncertain terms showed his disinterest in awards.
In a recent disclosure Salman Khan has stated that awards don't interest him at all and also adds that he does not even want any nominations for any of his films. In his characteristic witty sense of humour he went on to add that if any company or organization gets any mileage from his nomination then instead of doing that they should simply hand over a cheque to his Being Human foundation which would benefit the poor and the needy!
Well, awards or rewards, one thing is clear Salman Khan is indeed a good human being and it's the prayers of the needy that has helped Salman reach the top once again after being down and out!
Despite personal disputes, Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif came together for their close friend Farah Khan and shot an item number for ‘Tees Maar Khan’.

It is major highlight of the film choreographed by choreographer turned filmmaker Farah Khan.
A source reveals, "Despite tensions between Salman and Kat, they both had a great time shooting the song. In the quawalli number, Kat was styled like Meena Kumari from Pakeezah. Salman and Akshay was dressed up like tapori, colorful shirt, vests and pants. To add more fun to the song, Farah has also incorporated the famous towel dance move from Mujhse Shaadi Karoge.
The item number ‘Walla Walla’ will be more entertaining than raunchy ‘Sheila ki Jawani’ number.
Zarine Khan was introduced to the Hindi Film Industry by her mentor Salman Khan in her debut film ‘Veer’. And then it was Salman who roped her for an item number ‘Character Dheela’ in his film ‘Ready’ and it is also reported that Salman’s closeness with Sajid Nadiadwala that landed her a role in ‘Houseful 2’. With this her blooming friendship with Salman is quite evident and she admitted to it recently.
However, the lady also said that Salman is not her only friends and she has more friends other than the ones in Bollywood. She said that yes she is close to Salman and gives him all the credit for her career, and respects him to the core, but that doesn’t mean that she is just Salman’s friend. She has other friends and is close to all of them.
And since Friendship day is coming, the lady is busy chalking out plans with her other friends.
Bollywood bad boy Salman Khan indeed proved himself really a bad boy with his third girl friend Katrina Kaif departing from him. Even before, he finds his 4th one Katrina has proved she is too fast and smart to trap her second one Ranbir in no time.
Now, she not only glued to this chocolate boy Ranbir all the time, but also recommends him for all her films. When, directors and producers approach her with Salman films, she is spitting fire on them. She says that, she is no more interested to act with him and if any one comes with such proposals, she threatens to put them in black list.
On the other hand, she is insisting her new boy friend Ranbir to handle the bad boy Salman in his own style, which he honestly agrees is a difficult task for him. It is learnt that, though he is interested in her he is not in a position to marry her as he is facing stiff resistance from his family members. But, if he prolongs their affair few more weeks or months, undoubtedly this hot chick Katrina is going to jump for some other guy who has guts to tie holy knots in her neck. Anyway, she also very well knew that her chocolate boy can’t handle the six-packed bad boy Salman Khan. But, she has to glue to him until she finds another six-packed. Perhaps, like John Abraham who is looking for a new girl friend?
