In a candid chat about her friendship with Salman Khan, 90s Bollywood diva, Raveena Tandon has spoken about he has always stood by her as a friend.

In the interview to air on ZEE Classic show ‘My Life My Story’, Tandon revealed that while Salman was looking for his leading lady in ‘Patthar Ke Phool’ (1991), he visited the sets of her ad film to evaluate her work. What followed was a series of calls from Salim Khan and G.P. Sippy to her father Mr. Tandon, asking him to convince Tandon for the film. She agreed to do the film and it went on to become a super hit.

She elaborated, “Salman and I used to fight a lot on trivial issues; we have fought over a bubble gum! But honestly, Salman is a fantastic person at heart. If I have to name one person who has stood by my side as a friend, it would be him. All others turn their back in times of need, but Salman has always fulfilled his promise as a friend. He was always there for me when I needed him.”

Tandon is gearing up for her next release ‘Maatr’ out in April.
