The friend we’re talking about here is a popular Bollywood choreographer who’s worked on some of the most foot-thumping tracks.
We’re talking about Ganesh Acharya, who has choreographed Salman in films like Dabangg 2 and Bodyguard, and recently appeared as a guest judge on the reality show Super Dancer.
Ganesh who did not know how to swim until recently revealed that it was the Tiger Zinda Hai star who made him warm up to water. The two were in Mauritius for a film shoot and Salman, known to be a water baby, was enjoying some downtime in the pool when he invited Ganesh to join him. Ganesh who had aquaphobia, or the fear of water, back then, was hesitant to take a plunge in the pool.

But a source who was present at the scene tells us that Salman dared Ganesh to take a dip. And guess what? Ganesh jumped into the pool, without giving it much thought. And while he was in a bit of discomfort - Salman came to his rescue, like any good friend would. The superstar helped Ganesh paddle his way to the other end of the pool.

Since that day, Salman would make time to impart swimming lessons to Ganesh. That’s rather darling of Salman. Don’t you think?
