Kareena ‘lucky charm’ for Salman’s family?

Kareena Kapoor Khan has starred in the debut ventures of Salman Khan’s family members. It is because of this that she doesn’t deny being a ‘lucky charm’ for them!

At a promotional event for “Bajrangi Bhaijaan”, in which Kareena stars with Salman, she said: “When he offered me this role in his debut (Bollywood) production (under the banner Salman Khan Films), I thought it was great. And my producer is looking into the fact that I look beautiful in the film.

“It’s strange when Alvira (Salman’s sister) turned producer with Atul (Agnihotri) in ‘Bodyguard’, I was in the film. And when Arbaaz (Salman’s brother) turned director with ‘Dabangg 2’, I was in the song ‘Fevicol’. And now in Salman’s first production, again I’ll be there. So we have a great track record. I wouldn’t deny that I’m a lucky charm for them.”

Salman’s past productions have included “Chillar Party”, which he produced under SKBH Productions, and “Dr. Cabbie”, an Indo-Canadian project.
