Salman Khan showed a rare vulnerable side as he broke down at a prayer meet for Rajjat Barjatya, the late CEO of Rajshri films. Rajjat, a cousin of filmmaker Sooraj Barjatya, was a close friend of Salman, who made his debut in the Rashri production Maine Pyar Kiya.
"Rajjat was only 16 years old when Salman Khan and Sooraj Barjatya started their careers together with Maine Pyar Kiya. At 21, Rajjat was the associate producer on Hum Aapke Hain Koun..! and Salman regarded him as his younger brother. While Salman would tease him a lot, he would also take great care of him and help him a lot.”
Salman even tweeted an image with Rajjat and wrote, "Rest in peace my brother Rajjat Barjatya".
