Gautam Gulati has worked hard to establish a film career after his ‘Bigg Boss 8’ win and the effort is finally paying off as major producers like Salman Khan have started taking notice.
Signing ‘Radhe: Your Most Wanted Bhai’ has been a validating experience for Gulati, “Now I am working with Salman Khan Films. After 13 years of hard work, I feel secure. Salman Khan has trusted my talent. As an outsider, now I feel that yes there is a helping hand and that is Salman Khan.”
Despite the years of struggle, Gulati told Navbharat Times that ‘Radhe: Your Most Wanted Bhai’ came to him effortlessly, “I met Salman Khan at a party a few months ago. He asked me what am I doing, to which, I told that I’m not getting the kind of films I want to do. Some releases are stuck. He then asked me to work with him, I could not believe it. When I asked again, he said – yes, of course, take this number. Within the next 4 days, his team gave me my look for the film. There were no big rules or regulations. Salman made a commitment and I got a call the next day. He introduced me to his team and Prabhu Deva. I will remember for a lifetime how Salman picked up an outsider. I spoke to him on Friday, got selected on Monday and started shooting from Tuesday. My fate had changed in just a week. Big people in the film industry should be like Salman Khan.”
Gulati is currently promoting his latest film ‘Virgin Bhanupriya’ with Urvashi Rautela, releasing on 16th July on ZEE5.
