Going back to her Bollywood days, the actor shares her fond memories of working with Salman Khan and narrates a funny incident while shooting for the movie, Hum Aapke Hain Kaun.
Says Himani, “I remember the first time I met Salman was on the set of the movie, Hum Aapke Hai Kaun. The entire cast and crew were having a brief introduction, including Madhuri. However, Salman just came before the scene, so we did not get a chance to have a formal introduction. While we were shooting our first scene together, he called me Chachi Jaan and suddenly lifted me. At first, I was shocked because I wasn’t expecting this as it wasn’t a part of the script, besides it was the first-ever interaction. But that broke the ice, and we all had a hearty laugh over it later.”

She further added, “Since we all are home these days, I decided to utilise the time binge-watching episodes of my show Happu Ki Ultan Paltan alongside a couple of my movies. And that’s when I recollected this incident that brought a broad smile on my face.”
