However, did you know Naaz blocked Salman’s number when he called her to offer the movie?

Though sounds surprising, the actress herself revealed it during her recent appearance on The Kapil Sharma Show. Naaz revealed that she was in Amritsar when she received calls from an unknown number. She didn’t want to entertain the unknown calls at the moment and she blocked the number. 

“I was in Amritsar visiting the Gurudwara when I received a call from an unknown number. And I have this habit of blocking unknown numbers, so I did the same,” said Naaz. 

Naaz added, “Then after a few minutes, I got a message that Salman sir is trying to call me. Just to verify, I put the number on the Truecaller app and found out that it was actually Salman Khan calling me! I immediately unblocked him and called him back; it was then that he offered me the film and that’s how I got the film.”

At the trailer launch event, Shehnaaz opened up about her experience of working in the movie and expressed gratitude to Salman for trusting her with the film.

Sharing her experience, Naaz said, “When I went to shoot for my first music video, I was rejected. I was told, ‘Ye kaunsi bachchi leke aaye hai, we don’t want to shoot with her. Take her back.’ I came back and cried a lot at home, that I’ve been rejected.” 

Further, she went on to add, “My mom told me why am I crying, one day I would be in a Salman Khan film. Sir gave me a chance and proved that mom’s words always come true.”
