Salman Khan reveals how he got his first ad

In a talk show, Salman Khan revealed that his attempts to impress a girl got him a commercial for a soft drink brand. The actor said that he was swimming one day at the Sea Rock club and he saw this really beautiful, young lady walking past in a red sari. To impress her, he dived in the water and being such an idiot, he swam the whole length underwater. So when he came out on the other side, she was not there. Next day, he got a call from Far Productions, saying that they want him to do a cold drink commercial named, Campa Cola, at that point of time. He was wondering, how did this come about?

They were supposed to shoot that in the Maldives and they did want somebody who knew how to swim underwater. Salman and Jackie Shroff's wife, Ayesha were the only two who could do those laps underwater. That is how he faced the camera for the first time, he stated.
