That Salman Khan is a huge Chiranjeevi fan is a well-known fact . They don’t only share a mutual admiration for each other’s work, but also share family ties.When Chiranjeevi’s son Ramcharan Teja was shooting for his Hindi debut film(Zanjeer) in Mumbai, home-made food was sent from Salman’s residence every day to Ramcharan’s sets.
Salman has now found a new way to honour Chiranjeevi. In Dabangg 3 which opens in December, Salman would be doing his first “item song” entitled Munna badnaam hua, a male version of the popular Munni badaam hui performed in the first Dabangg film by MalaikaArora.
And here’s where Salman will pay a tribute to Chiranjeevi. On Salman’s insistence choreographer-director Prabhudheva has incorporated Chiranjeevi’s celebrated “Veena step” where he glides in the shape of the Indian musical instrument , the Veena.
A source close to the film reveals, “Salman wanted to attempt a different kind of dance move in Munna badnaam. That’s where he came up with Chiranjeevi Sir’s famous ‘Veena step.’ Prabhudheva was more than happy to incorporate it.”
