Salman Khan and Chiranjeevi have been friends for long, and on the sidelines of the south star's 60th birthday, the "Bajrangi Bhaijaan" star opened up on why they have held on to each other all this time.

Talking to The Times of India, Salman said how humble the actor is, adding that he loves the man Chiranjeevi is and how he would do anything the senior actor asks him to do.

"One night he was at home, he met dad and we were chilling together. He was staying at a hotel. I said to him, 'Where are you going, Chiru garu? Come sleep in the bedroom.' He said, 'You are right, it will take me a lot of time to go to the hotel. I will sleep here on the couch.' Can you imagine, he is such an amazing person," he reminisced fond memories.

When asked who was a better dancer, Salman quickly said "Chiru Garu" was and that he had the moves and the "lachak" one needs to be a good dancer.

The superstar clearly couldn't stop himself from praising the birthday boy as he went on to say how his real life image makes him a hero onscreen.

For trivia's sake, Salman also recalled that he had first met the south actor on the sets of a commercial shoot and that ever since then he has got along well with the megastar.
