Salman Khan’s iconic towel dance is inspired by Friends
Bollywood star Salman Khan is more popular than many Hollywood stars thanks to India’s over 1 billion population.
Apart from India he also has a huge fan base in Pakistan, the sixth most populous country in the world, as well as other parts of the globe where Indian and Pakistani origin people are settled.
Khan has given one after other box office hits during the past few years, with his films grossing billions of dollars worldwide.
The actor is still a bachelor and his affairs have been subject of discussions for tabloids and newspapers for years.
Aside from his acting and good looks, Salman is famous for a certain dance move that he is often seen performing on his films and TV shows.
It’s called his iconic towel dance in which he uses a towel or any piece of clothing between his legs.
But few people know that the dance was originally performed by a character in “Friends”, an American sitcom featuring Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc, Matthew Perry and David Schwimmer.
It was performed by a male stripper in the season 10th, episode 11th of “Friends”.
The male stripper clad in a police uniform is called by Rachel Green for Phoebe Buffay’s bachelor party.
The character performs the move after tearing his police uniform in the episode titled “The One Where Stripper Cries”.
