Artist Pradeep Verma had an exhibition of his painting titled 'Buddham Sharanam Gacchami' recently. And the Art aficionados who attended the exhibition were in a pleasant surprise when superstar Salman Khan walked in with his family, the Khan clan, Malaika Arora, Alvira, Seema Khan&niece Alizeh in tow to see the artist' interpretation of the theme.
Salman was very appreciative of the paintings and was heard discussing the same with his family and artist Pradeep Verma. He also spoke at length about his inspiration behind his own painting and his favorite colours and concepts. Salman typically was also heard joking with his niece who was busy collecting Mushrooms, 'Baccha, you need to adore the painting¬ the Mushrooms"!
Besides the art connoisseurs, also present were celebs Suchitra Pillai, Nethra, Ash Chandler&Niharika Khan.
Artist Pradeep Verma seemed very pleased with the support and said, 'It was a pleasant surprise to have Salman Khan attend the exhibition. He understands art, since there is an artist inside him.'
When asked about his inspiration behind the theme, said Pradeep Verma, 'I feel since many years that there is something beside my heart. Buddha the enlightenment one lived a life of austerity... this realization has made me discover my existence to the path of meditation and hope my artworks soothe the mind and help you discover the gentle state of inner peace.
