Pulkit Samrat feeling blessed to get Salman's support

Salman Khan and Pulkit

Newbie Pulkit Samrat, who is making his debut in Bollywood with Kumar Mangat's 'Bittoo Boss' cannot stop gushing about actor Salman Khan, who has developed liking for him.

Pulkit is finding himself extremely lucky to be under the mentorship of none other than Salman.

"He (Salman) is my mentor. If he likes someone he goes all out his way to support that person. He is a man with a heart of gold...always supportive. I am blessed to have his support," said Pulkit.

Salman Khan is known for encouraging new talents like Katrina Kaif, Zarine Khan, Sneha Ulal, Hazel Keech of 'Bodyguard' fame and Himesh Reshammiya among others.

"He has knack of understanding people. What is special about him is that he does things without even you asking for it," Pulkit said.

It all started when Salman made the atmosphere cool and lively by attending the music launch of 'Bittoo Boss' as the chief guest, last month.

"He liked the promos and even the songs from the film...this is a big thing for me. He has some expectations from this film, hope I live up to it," Pulkit said.

Grapevine suggests that at an awards ceremony Salman introduced Pulkit to few top directors. And that he is also guiding him through his endorsements and next film signings.

"I just hope whatever he is doing by going out of his way...I do not dishearten him. He is a man with the golden touch. I feel blessed," Pulkit said.

Till now, whoever has managed to grab Salman's attention has gone a long way in the film industry. Hopefully this is just the beginning of an eventful ride in B-town for the newcomer.
