From pastels to neon to white, women can go wild with their experimental streaks as Bollywood star Salman Khan’s Being Human Ladies collection is launched here in Dubai.

Bollywood filmmaker and brother to the superstar on why Dubai makes property sense
By Parag Pramod Deulgaonkar | Tuesday, May 21, 2013
Bollywood filmmaker Sohail Khan is a man of few words.
While the entire media is going ‘mental’ reporting that Sohail and his star brother Salman Khan is not happy with the title of his upcoming movie ‘Mental’, Sohail has chosen to keep quiet.
When he decided to talk, he spokeexclusively to Emirates24|7 here in Dubai to make it loud and clear that he is not changing the title and that there is no difference of opinion with Salman on the topic.
Sohail, who was in the emirate to shoot a promotional video for Burj Pacific clarified about how the name fits the bill:
Both Salman and Sohail have expressed their love for Dubai on several occasions and the emirate is the destination of choice for Bollywood stars; be it for their movies or for investing money in property. The Khan brothers are no different.
Emirates24|7 had earlier reported that Sohail Khan purchased an apartment in Burj Pacific.
Asked why he chooses to buy property in Burj Pacific, Sohail says, “I made the investment because Parvez Khan, the developer, offered me what I wanted. The price was reasonableand I got a good payment plan.”
During his promotional shoot for Burj Pacific, Sohail spoke how Dubai real estate meets his criteria. “Business Bay is an upcoming area, which is reasonably priced. Moreover, it is close to Downtown and Dubai Mallwhere we spend a lot of time when ever we are here.”
There has been occasions when big brother Salman expressed his willingness to invest in Dubai and Sohail asserts, “Yes bhai (brother) believes and supports my real estate investments. I do invest in Mumbai’s real estate and now I have started investing in Dubai.”
Sohail doesn’t rule out moving to Dubai, which is just 180 minutes away from Mumbai, the Bollywood hub. “We love the city and this is one place where I would love to settle down in future and so I have made the investment,” he reveals.
But If sources are to be believed then Khan has found new love after all, he is currently dating a mystery girl from Dubai called Oliya.
As a source reveals, “Salman Khan has been seen with this mystery girl since a few days. He was spotted in Delhi recently with her at a launch. She was seen mingling around with Salman’s family too.
Apparently the lady in talks is putting up at Taj Lands End,
Mumbai since 10 days and Salman too has been accompanying her.’
If the rumors are to be believed, Salman has been spending a lot of time with Oliya these days, there is something is definitely cooking between the two.
