'Your papa strongest': That's what Salman Khan told Sonu Sood's son who was upset after his dad was beaten up in Dabangg
Apparently, during a screening of Dabangg, Khan overheard Eshaan protest: "Papa, you have a better body than Salman. How can he beat you up?" Khan had a chat with Eshaan and assured him that his father had the best body in showbiz and that he ought to be a very proud son.
Sood confirms the incident. "People close to an actor generally respond emotionally to his presence rather than performance in a film. My father has become emotionally vulnerable since my mom died two years ago. When he watched Dabangg with my sister in Washington he sobbed like a baby. He doesn't want me to die on screen," the actor said.
The Jodhaa Akbar actor added, "Salman is actually my role model. I was in college when I watched his Veergati. He'll make a terrific father one day."
