Bobby Deol is set to make his comeback with multi-starrer Race 3 and the actor gives its credit to Salman Khan. If you may recall, at the launch of Race 3 trailer, two things that didn’t go unnoticed was Bobby Deol calling Salman Khan, ‘Mamu’ and Khan telling Bobby, ‘Shirt Utarega Kya’? In a candid conversation with Mumbai Mirror, Bobby Doel reveals how he started calling the superstar, ‘Mamu’. During the interview, he was asked if Salman is also making an appearance in a song for Yamla Pagla Deewana 3?

Bobby replied saying, “Salman is a sweetheart, a selfless man who only wants to do things for people. When I was starting out, I’d practice my stunts and ride horses on the beach. His Maine Pyar Kiya had just released and it was a big hit, yet he behaved so normally. He was fond of me and vice versa so we just came up with the name Mamu and it has stuck. I still lovingly call him Mamu.”

When asked about how he landed up signing Race 3 and looking ripped and hunky in the trailer. The actor said, “Much before I signed Race 3, I’d started working on myself in anticipation of offers that would come. My dietician put me on a Keto diet and I was working out simultaneously. Then, suddenly, I got a call from Salman (Khan) one day. He came into my life like an angel and thanks to him I landed Race 3 and subsequently started working out with his trainer, discovering that if you’re healthy, you can focus more on work. He’s the reason for this physique.”

And as for ‘Mamu’, now we know how it came to life.
