Pooja Dadwal, who starred in the Bollywood film Veergati opposite Salman Khan is suffering from tuberculosis. The former actress seek help from the superstar for her treatment. Earlier this week, Pooja reached out to the Tiger Zinda Hai actor for financial aid. Now, the Dabangg Khan has assured that his NGO Being Human has reached out to his co-star Pooja Dadwal.
Salman was asked about the same at the Da-Bangg Tour press conference in Pune to which he replied that the team is now in touch with her and trying to help in every possible manner.
"I know. It's really sad. She is not my co-star but she was Atul's (Agnihotri) co-star. I just heard about this and we are trying to help as much as we can. And our team is already onto it. I did not know that she was going through this phase. I think she will be okay," he told reporters.
When asked how it was to perform with his female co-actors on-stage, Salman said, "It is difficult to match up to their dancing abilities, their energy and just the way they are. But thank God it is only me here on the show so I have been able to pull it off. But if there was Aamir (Khan), Shah Rukh (Khan) or Akshay (Kumar), we have done shows together, it would have been difficult to match up."
When asked why his rumoured girlfriend Iulia Vantur was not a part of the show, considering she is a singer too, Salman quipped, "Iulia Mathur?"
The actor paused and added with a smile, "Yeah, but let more of her come. Once they are out we shall see."
