The actor claims he met Salman, who expressed a desire to work with him, and got a call from the team of the film the next day.
“This would not have been possible if Salman sir was not there. We met randomly and he hugged me and he thought we should work together, he asked me if I would play a negative role. I could not believe it. I told him that all my favourite heroes are the negative ones and the very next day, his team called me and it was done,” he says.
He adds that work on his character began soon after.
“My clothes, look, training all started
the hairstyle was changed and the shoot commenced. I will never forget this. He has always been very helpful. It feels amazing when a top megastar is there to help me, and believes in me,” Gautam says.
The actor played the role of Girgit in the film that released recently.
