Salman Khan, ever the gracious host, decided to celebrate Jackie Chan's arrival in Mumbai by throwing a party with some style. An impromptu event, the party saw the who's who of the city arrive in grand style, with Salman's co-star, Matin Rey Tangu, from Tubelight in the limelight.

Chan, who was in India to promote his latest film Kung Fu Yoga with Sonu Sood, decided to drop in and hang for a while. The presence of this Academy Award winner certainly had the stars thronging to Salman's Galaxy. Tiger Shroff, Sonu Sood, Kangana Ranaut, Remo D'Souza, Sohail Khan, Saif Ali Khan, were among the names that were present. 

However, the star of the show was undoubtedly the little star of Tubelight, Matin Rey Tangu. Salman certainly did not mind having the little boy around, and was seen kidding around. The sight of the action star and a man addressed as 'Bhaijaan' by some superstars, horse around is the perfect example of Salman's childlike personality. The way Salman was playing around with the paper toy in Tangu's hand makes for a perfect snap. 

Khan's rumoured girlfriend, Iulia Vantur, played host as she welcomed the guests, and oversaw the dinner party. The presence of Saif Ali Khan at the party was also a surprise, considering how the Nawab of Pataudi is not a frequent visitor to the Salman household. 

The camaraderie between Salman and the little Tangu also brings back memories of the actor's last tryst with a child co-star, Harshaali Malhotra, in Bajrangi Bhaijaan (2015). Incidentally, both Salman's current film and Bajrangi Bhaijaan are under Kabir Khan.
