"Even I got tears in my eyes."
Palak Tiwari made her Bollywood debut in Salman Khan’s Kisi Ka Bhai Kisi Ki Jaan but her first meeting was when she was 11 years old. The moment has now resurfaced.
Appearing on Reddit, the video features Palak on the Bigg Boss stage witnessing her mother Shweta win the fourth season.
In the video, Shweta is seen with tears of joy after winning the show, hugging her mother and young Palak.
Meanwhile, former WWE wrestler The Great Khali is also seen on stage, having been named runner-up.
While Shweta hugs her mother, Salman goes over to an emotional Palak and hugs her. He kisses her on the head and tells her not to cry.
The resurfaced clip led fans to point out the endearing way Salman comforts Palak.
Remembering the episode, one fan said:
“This was my favourite season of BB (Bigg Boss).”
Another said: “Even I got tears in my eyes.”
Discussing Salman’s behaviour with Palak, a user wrote:
He’s always good with the kids, makes me wonder if he regrets not having any of his own.
“Maybe that’s the only part he regrets about not getting married.”
Another wrote: “As Salman said he would have been a ‘great dad’. It’s not even a competition bhai (brother) is the best with kids.”
Many also found The Great Khali’s presence hilarious.
One said: “Khali just standing there is cracking me up.”
Another wrote: “No one is asking Khali anything.”
Explaining the video clip, one said: “This was after Shwetha Tiwari was announced as the winner of Bigg Boss.
“Her daughter Palak came on stage, and bhai hugged her and said, ‘Hey sweetheart, your mumma won’.”
Now aged 22, Palak Tiwari has gone on to make her Bollywood debut alongside Salman in Kisi Ka Bhai Kisi Ki Jaan, which has been released to mixed reviews.
The film also marked Shehnaaz Gill’s Bollywood debut.
Palak recently hit headlines after she said Salman Khan had a clothing rule for all women on the set of Antim.
She recalled: “When I was AD-ing with Salman sir on Antim, I don’t think many people know this, Salman Sir had a rule ‘For every girl on my set, the neckline should be here, all the girls should be covered, like good proper girls’.”
Palak later stated that her point was misunderstood.
She said: “It’s really been misunderstood.
“All I wanted to say is that I have put certain guidelines for myself as to how to dress around people who are way senior to me, who have I pretty much grown up idolising. Salman sir is of course one of them.”
