Impressed with Sidharth's acting in the film, the Dabangg star gifted him a designer watch on the occasion as a token of appreciation.
Sidharth said that he had invited Salman, but he said he would be unable to attend the party due to shooting.
"He called me up and congratulated for good opening (of Ek Villain) and my performance. I had invited him and he first said he can't come. But, he came and I think it was sweet of him," Sidharth told reporters here.
"A person of his stature doesn't need to do this and I think he has a great heart. He also got a watch, it was a sweet gesture," the actor added. (Also read:
