Salman Khan’s amazing painting skill is shown on the shooting sets of Tubelight
Bollywood superstar Salman Khan is a genius in true sense. He’s a Megastar, who can act, dance, sing, choreograph, write a script – completely a man who with the Midas touch, for whatever the ‘Tubelight’ actor touches turns into gold. Be it his films, or a paint brush! Many of us might be aware of or not but Salman Khan is a wonder as a painter. From abstract to modern strokes, his favourite pastime is mixing colours on a palette. The actor has a huge collection of paintings locked up at his Panvel bungalow. Paintings drawn by him have a value of it own, that his paintings are sold for lakhs and crores. And all the amount that comes from the auctions straightaway goes into the funds of his NGO “Being Human”.
Lately, the Sultan actor has done exactly similar kind of wonder. This time Salman made another beautiful abstract painting while he has been shooting on the sets of his upcoming release Tubelight. Jesus Christ’s face has always been a favourite theme of his paintings and this time too the 51 year old actor went to sketch another amazing painting of Christ. As per a source close to the development, the excellent work of Salman left the entire crew awestruck.
Not once or twice, Salman has shown his skillful handiwork while he has been working on sets. He made a painting during the shooting of his blockbuster film Bajrangi Bhaijaan. It was about a couple, sharing a moment of love. Salman later gifted it to his Bajrangi Bhaijaan co-star Kareena Kapoor Khan. This is what he painted and shared on his Twitter handle.
Even during the shooting of Ek Tha Tiger, too, Salman Khan had done a similar thing. According to IMDb, in the scene where Tiger is seen painting Zoya, played by Katrina Kaif, an actual artwork by Salman is used. Apparently Salman Khan had painted the picture while the crew was setting up the cameras for the shoot. Salman sure knows where to show off his creative skills.
Salman keeps doodling in between the shots too. So much so, that he drew Lord Shiva on a piece of paper when he had gone to promote “Bajrangi Bhaijaan” on the sets of “Indian Idol Junior”, and all within 10 minutes leaving the entire crew amazed!

Salman Khan’s name might be synonymous with star like stardom, incredible fan following and blockbuster hits charity works and controversies, but when he is drenched in colours, he ends making paintings that are masterpieces. That’s the best way a man of many moods like him can express his inner self, made of pure gold.
Well, Salman Khan is currently busy in shooting activities of his forthcoming periodical humane drama Tubelight, all set to release this Eid, on 23rd June.
