In those days, Salman and his father were constantly trying to give him some chance in front of the camera. Many times the doors of directors and producers have also been closed in front of Salman Khan. At that time he was only 15 years old when he was selected for an ad. Kailash Surendranath was making this ad. The name of Salman Khan was suggested to Kailash by Aarti Gupta, the fiancee of the ad maker. When Kailash Surendranath saw Salman, he said that Salman will have children in front of all his co-stars in this ad. Apart from Ayesha and Aarti, Sunil Nischal, Shiraz Merchant etc were also in this ad. Aarti asks Surendranath to once ask him to take off his shirt and when he saw Salman’s body, he was completely convinced.
Actually, Aarti had seen Salman Khan swimming for the first time and Surendranath was looking for a good looking swimmer for this ad. Salman looked perfect to Aarti at first sight and the same thing happened.
However, when Salman left for his first shoot, Jackie Shroff had come to the airport to drop his wife Ayesha Shroff and he was terrified to see her. At that time, Jackie was a well-known name in the industry and Salman’s confidence was shaken after seeing everyone’s personality. However, Kailash Surendranath persuaded them and finally all left for Andaman.
After this, Salman mingled a lot with all his co-stars and then he shot the Campa Cola ad with everyone. For this ad, he shot underwater, which Salman Khan shot quite confidently.
