When Salman Khan is in a room, it’s obvious that he’s going to be the centre of attention. And of course, that’s what happened at the music launch of ‘Ready’. But generally at a music launch, the music director is given a fair chance to speak and is acknowledged by everyone. But that’s not what happened at the music launch of ‘Ready’. Pritam, who is the music director, was completely sidelined at the event. Salman hugged singer Neeraj Sridhar warmly but completely ignored Pritam, who was standing next to him. In fact, Salman didn’t even say anything about Pritam on stage. So is there a little tiff between the two? Watch this space for updates!
Meanwhile, what Salman did show off at the ‘Ready’ music launch was his philanthropic side. At the event, he felicitated workers living in Film City in Mumbai. He invited Film City workers to the music launch and also presented them with clothes.
"When I was shooting for my film ‘Bodyguard’ I realised that there are so many people who work day in and day out and when we organise events we call such people, who don’t even appreciate anything. So I thought that we should call those people who work here," Salman revealed.
"Ideas just come to me, so this time I thought why not felicitate the people of Film City because these are the people who are the masses also and have also been a part of the film. We have shared such a long relationship with them and no one invites them for any events," he added.
The workers were very excited to be getting gifts from Salman Khan and on being honoured by the entire cast and crew of the film including Asin, Zarine Khan and director Anees Bazmee among others.
Salman even distributed chocolates and fed children of the workers, making for a completely endearing sight.
Asin was elated too, to be part of this music launch with a difference.
"I feel very happy to be in front of the film city workers who have helped us make the film that we have made. It takes a lot of pride and pleasure to showcase our trailers and songs in front of all of them.
‘Ready’ is up for release on June 3.(IANS)
