As you know by now when a star kid’s film releases, the whole family will be interviewed with the hope that this will make the public go and watch their film. The whole family interviews happen if the whole family is in the film industry, like when Ranbir Kapoor debuted. But this time and this year, it’s with Sooraj Pancholi. Sooraj happens to be the son of actress Zarina Wahab and actor/villain Aditya Pancholi. No one has interviewed Aditya because the makers of this film know that Aditya is bad press for his son. The further he stays from promoting Sooraj, the better. So, Zarina has given this interview where she states how Sooraj has been misunderstood just like Salman has. If you don’t know, Sooraj was arrested when his actress girlfriend Jiah Khan, also known as Nafisa Khan, committed suicide two years back. Salman was also arrested when he was accused of running over people, who slept on the road. Here’s what Zarina Wahab has to say on her son Sooraj Pancholi and Salman Khan.
Zarina Wahab on Sooraj Pancholi
He might be our son but he has never asked us for any help. Whatever he’s done today is all because of his hard work and Salman Khan‘s support.
Zarina Wahab on the kind of person Sooraj Pancholi is
He is a very well brought up kid. He knows how to respect his elders and gives a lot of love to everyone around. I always believed that whatever happens, happens for a reason. At the end, if you are a nice person, nothing bad can happen to you. I am happy that Hero is releasing and everyone is talking about Sooraj.
Zarina Wahab on staying away from the sets of Sooraj Pancholi’s ‘Hero’
I didn’t want to burden him by going on the sets. He would have become very conscious of my presence. But there was one time when he insisted a lot and said, “Ma, you come.” That was the only day I have been on the sets.”
Zarina Wahab on the advice she gave Sooraj
I have always told him one thing. Don’t think you are a star. Be humble and go to a set as a worker.
Zarina Wahab on Salman Khan‘s Support for Sooraj
Nothing would have happened if Salman was not there. He is allah ka farishta for us. He believed in Sooraj when no one else was ready to believe him. He stood by his grounds and supported Sooraj.
Zarina Wahab on the similarities between Sooraj Pancholi and Salman Khan
Both of them have hearts of gold but are extremely misunderstood. Even today, when there is a person at our door, Sooraj will run to me and say, “Ma usne kuch nahi khaya hoga. Please usko khana de do.” Not many people would do that. Salman is possibly one of the best human beings ever. Allah ka nek banda hai woh. He is such a nice person in real life. But both of them are terribly misunderstood. Maybe, that’s why Salman also connects a lot with Sooraj. He loves him dearly.
