British Indian actress Hazel Keech, who made her Bollywood debut with blockbuster “Bodyguard”, says Salman Khan never revealed that he was suffering from pain while shooting for the movie.
Salman left for the US before the film could hit the screens and underwent an eight-hour operation in Pittsburgh for a nerve problem that was causing exruciating pain in his head, jaws and cheeks.
“The operation went off well, but the pain is still there so he would be going for another operation. But even if he is in pain, he is never going to speak of it. He is such a brave person,” Keech told IANS in an interview.
Hazel flew down to Mumbai from London with stardust in her eyes, but gave up all hopes of making a career in acting in India. She was returning when she got the “Bodyguard” offer.
“I was not getting any work, so I was planning to go back to London. The day I was about to leave, I got a text message from Atul Agnihotri and he asked me to meet him. I met him, we spoke for over two-and-a-half-hours and then he selected me,” said the 24-year-old, who has worked in Tamil film “Billa”.
