The IIFA Awards 2022 aired on TV over the weekend. Held in Abu Dhabi, the star-studded event saw several Bollywood celebrities in attendance, including actors Vicky Kaushal, Shahid Kapoor, and Ananya Panday. At the event, actor Sara Ali Khan was seen pulling actor Salman Khan’s leg by calling him “uncle”. The duo later danced together to a song from Salman’s 1997 film ‘Judwaa’.

In the segment, Sara says that she wants to launch some brands. She later adds, “Salman uncle ke saath (with Salman uncle).” Salman replies, “Aapki picture gayi (now your film is gone).” A sad Sara then says, “Meri picture kyun gayi (why so?)”. Salman says, “Aapne sabke samne mujhe uncle bulaya (you called me uncle in front of everyone).” Sara replies, “You told me to call you uncle.” The duo then dance to ‘Tan Tana Tan Tan’.

A promo of the event circulated online. One fan commented, “They always create magic on stage.” Another said, “Hahaha Sara is so cute”. While one joked, “Sara ne Salman ko gussa dila diya haha.”
