Bhabhiji Ghar Par Hai fame Vibhuti as known as Aasif Shiekh is now a household name due to his comic character in the serial. But there were times when Aasif Sheikh was jobless and was looking for work door to door. It was superstar Salman Khan who helped him in revamping his career by offering him roles in his movies.
In an interview with TOI, Aasif Shiekh took the opportunity and spoke about how Salman Khan and he are really good friends. He even revealed how Salman has helped him with films when he was jobless. “My friendship with Salman Khan goes a long long way. It was the time when Salman’s first film Biwi Ho Toh Aisi and my film Yaara Dildara were released. Since that time we have been friends. He is like a family friend. Salim uncle (Salman’s father) is very fond of me. He loves me a lot. Salman also respects and loves me a lot. There are times when we don’t meet for months but whenever we meet we are on the same page. I really really appreciate Salman as he got me a couple of good films when I was going through a very rough phase. It’s a great friendship between Salman and me,” he said.
Aasif Sheikh had played a negative role in Salman and Shahrukh’s starrer ‘Karan Arjun’ back in the 90s. He was last seen in Salman Khan’s ‘Bharat’ playing a role.
