Salman Khan is well known for gifting expensive items to people who touch his heart, and the latest one to be blessed with such a gesture is his "Bajrangi Bhaijaan" co-star Harshaali Malhotra.
Little Harshaali played the role of a Pakistani mute girl in the movie and like everyone else, Salman Khan too is mighty impressed with her performance.
It has been reported that Salman has promised Harshaali's family that he would give Rs 1.5 crore for the little girl's education. "Salman is really impressed by this little child and he acknowledges her contributions to the success of the film."
"Salman feels like Harshaali's guardian. On the sets and on tough locations the girl depended on her Salman Uncle the way she depends on her mother. Salman is naturally fond of children. But his bonding with Harshaali was beyond anything he has shared with the kids. He wants her upbringing to be special," says a source.
Before giving a nod to "Bajrangi Bhaijaan", Harshaali was offered a cameo role in "Prem Ratan Dhan Payo".
The little girl was to play a younger Sonam Kapoor in the film. Reports suggest that she was also offered to play younger Katrina Kaif in another flick, but her parents finally decided to go for "Bajrangi Bhaijaan".
