“He just walked in and whispered in my ear and hugged me tight and I was so shocked and happy that I just took his blessings. I am on top of the world having met Salman Khan. I felt special, that amongst everyone else, he chose to meet me. I’m truly blessed that he likes my singing,” he added.

Jugpreet further shared that the “Dabangg” star even expressed a desire to work with him in the near future.
