Sayyeshaa, who is making her Bollywood debut with Ajay Devgn in Shivaay, reveals she met Salman at her grandfather Dilip Kumar's birthday party few years back.
"I met him (Salman) few years ago at my grandfather's birthday and he in fact said that time I will get into films. I think he has an eye for talent. Over the years our equation is like I can pick up the call and talk to him if I should do this film or not. I can take advice from him. I think I am lucky to be able to do that, "Sayyeshaa told PTI.
The 19-year-old actress has expressed her desire to work with the Sultan star.
"He is a fantastic human being. He is my favourite and I want to work with him. I know Sooraj Pancholi and Tiger Shroff and they are friends of mine. But most of my friends are from school and college. I know people socially in Bollywood but my closet friends are from outside the film industry," she said.
Sayyeshaa said she is looking forward to the release of Shivaay. Directed by Ajay, it is set to release on October 28.
