One believes in being human, the other embraces all of humanity.
So we imagine Salman Khan and the Dalai Lama found plenty to talk about when they met recently.
The Times of India reports that the Bajrangi Bhaijaan actor met the Tibetan spiritual leader in Ladakh, and that they had a pleasant chat.
What's more, Salman was accompanied on this meeting by his rumoured fiancee Iulia Vantur.
The photo received by TOI shows Salman and Iulia seated together on a couch while the Dalai Lama and presumably a few aides and officials are seated next to them on chairs. Salman and His Holiness seem to be in intense conversation, going by the look of concentration on their faces.
To recap, Salman has been in Ladakh shooting for Kabir Khan's Tubelight, in which he stars with Chinese actress Zhu Zhu (side note: Will his meeting with the Tibetan leader cause an embarrassing situation for his co-star?).
However, he has also made use of his time in Ladakh to visit several monasteries and institutions like hospitals. It was while he was visiting the Thikse Monastery that Salman had the opportunity to meet His Holiness.
Did the Dalai Lama had a lesson or two in compassion to offer Salman? And did Iulia receive His Holiness' blessings too?
We suppose only Salman, or the Dalai lama, might be able to tell us.
