How I Met Salman Khan!
This is my second story on this website, even if I am still waiting for the first one to be published. But as I understood very well, it will happen at the right time. I have been so passionate about Indian movies for the last 11 years, and during all this time I have learnt Hindi, been very active in promoting this cinema and have always dreamt to meet at least one of my favourite actors.
Since I am using the Secret and especially The Power and The Magic, I have been able to assist twice to the prestigious IIFA Awards in Tampa and then in Madrid. During the latter, I happened to be the first person allowed to enter and assist in the Green Carpet, where all the stars are posing and being interviewed. I’ve seen so many, such as Shahid Kapoor, Farhan Akhtar, Hrithik Roshan, Deepika Padukone, Priyanka Chopra, etc. but never had the opportunity to talk to them. A lot of celebrities come to my work place but for some reason, I was never there at the right time. Anyway, I knew my day would come.
And yesterday, it happened. I have met Salman Khan. Funny thing is a friend of mine told me that even if he was in town he would never come to this department store. The moment I saw him while getting down the escalator, I recognized him straight away; his allure, his walk, his attitude. I couldn’t help myself and went towards him and his bodyguards, waited patiently, and here he was, coming to greet me! What a wonderful feeling, to see him face to face, looking straight into my eyes and giving me some of his time! I was so shocked yet elated at the same time, I’m sure my whole face was glowing as I couldn’t believe my luck! He could see I was very emotional. I was not able to tell him everything I wanted but he thanked me at the end. I left radiant and so grateful I could finally meet one of those people I truly admire as an actor and as a person! And also that he came to see me even if his bodyguards were not keen on letting me approach him.
So thank you, thank you, thank you Salman and the Universe, for proving to me once again that everything happens at the right moment and for making me even more confident that everything I am waiting for at the moment will finally manifest. After all, I talked to Salman Khan, one of the Kings of Bollywood, so everything is possible!
Never stop believing in your dreams.
