These days the promotion of the film is as important as the making of the film itself and where Aamir Khan and SRK have been trying out innovative means to promote their flicks, Salman Bhai is not lagging behind. As such, this Sunday, Salman Khan was spotted riding a horse at the Hello Million Race, racing against top jockeys at the Mahalakshmi race course in Mumbai as part of his promotion for the much ambitious project, ‘Veer’. Salman’s leading lady in Veer, Zarine Khan along with sisters Arpita and Alvira and brother Arbaaz, was spotted cheering for Salman Khan throughout the race.
Clad in a black t-shirt, blue jeans and donning a yellow helmet, the 44-year-old raced with six jockeys at the Mahalakshmi race course Sunday, winning the event and being awarded a trophy. “I was a bit nervous (before the race). If I’d have lost, people would have thought Salman lost the race and if I’d have won then they would have said that he had to win because he is a star,” Salman told the reporters after the race.
“But I’d like to clarify that it was not a set-up and was a genuine race. I gave my best along with the jockeys and so did they,” he added.
