It is a well-known fact that Salman Khan is great with children. He is often spotted spending time with his sister Arpita Khan Sharma’s son Ahil and brother Sohail Khan’s son Yohan including other celebrity kids. Now, we have come across a throwback picture which proves that Bollywood’s Bhaijaan has always shared a special bond with little kids.
Raveena Tandon took to Instagram to share an old photo of Rasha Thadani, her daughter, in which the latter is seen sitting on “uncle” Salman’s lap.
“How time flies .. down memory lane, when @officialrashathadani was all of 5 years old .. hanging with uncle salman.. must say he is the best ever with kids,” Raveena captioned the photograph.
Going by Raveena’s caption, it seems that the picture was captured in 2010 when Rasha was 5 years old and Salman must have been 44 at the time. And we agree with Raveena when she says “Salman is great with kids.”
Raveena and Salman have worked together in several films. In fact, Raveena’s big Bollywood debut was opposite Salman Khan in Patthar Ke Phool (1991). Its song, Kabhi Tu Chaliya Lagta Hai, in the buttery vices of S Balasubramaniyam and Lata Mangeshkar, was one of the most popular tracks of the 90s.
Apart from that, Raveena was also seen with Salman in the cult classic, Andaz Apna Apna (1994). However, in Rajkumar Santoshi’s Andaz Apna Apna, Raveena was paired opposite Aamir Khan, while Karisma Kapoor played Salman’s love interest.
Salman Khan and Raveena Tandon were also seen in Kahin Pyaar Na Ho Jaaye (2000). While Salman was the lead of Kahin Pyaar Na Ho Jaaye, paired opposite Rani Mukerji, Raveena had a small appearance in the film. Needless to say, Salman and Raveena share a great camaraderie both on and off screen.
Coming to their personal lives, Raveena married Anil Thadani in 2004 and gave birth to Rasha after the gap of a year in 2005. Her second child Ranbir Vardhan was born in 2008.
On the other hand, Salman, who is 53 years old now, has no plans of getting hitched anytime soon. He still wants to experience fatherhood, though, as the Dabangg 3 actor claimed in an earlier interview.
“I want children, but with children comes the mother. I don’t want the mother, but they need one. But I have a whole village to take care of them. Maybe I can work out a win-win situation for everyone,” Salman had said.
Well, whenever Salman manages to come up with a “win-win situation for everyone”, we can easily assume that the actor will be the best with his kids, too.
