Actor Salman Khan is known to be a good Samaritan. And recently, director Prem Soni who has directed Preity Zinta’s first production, Ishkq in Paris, says that Khan came to his rescue too. Soni was battling gallbladder cancer. “Salman was very concerned when he got to know about my health
issues. He got in touch with me and was very supportive when I was battling with cancer. Salman bhai is just a call away and his call makes a huge difference to me,” says Soni, adding, “He must be a huge star, but he is a far better human being. However, now I am healthy and fine and thanks for all the support.”
After Soni was diagnosed with cancer, the release of Ishkq In Paris was moved from November 2012 to May 2013.
Soni has added a song with Salman in the film and says he considers him as his mentor. “Salman is beyond work for me...I look up to him. He is my mentor and the song was written keeping him in mind right from the beginning,” said Soni who made his directorial debut with Salman in Main Aurr Mrs. Khanna.
Even actor- turned-producer Preity too extended her full support to him when his disease was diagnosed.
