Newcomer Pulkit Samrat has said superstar Salman Khan, known for promoting newbies, has got the "Midas touch" and is proving to be a great mentor for him.

"His (Salman's) backing will definitely help me. Salman has got midas touch, if he is touching us (our work as actors) we must have done some good work. I feel very fortunate that he trusted me to play this character in 'O Teri'", Pulkit told PTI in an interview.

The 'Furkey' fame actor played an honest cop in Salman's recently released 'Jai Ho' and is hoping to share screen space with the Dabbang actor in future.


'O Teri' is produced by Salman's brother-in-law Atul Agnihotri.

"Salman is always aware of what I am doing. He is my check point for everything I do, what I should do and what I shouldn't. He teaches a lot from his own mistakes so that we don't make those mistakes again. Sometimes he wants us to make some mistakes so that we understand things in a better way", Pulkit said.

The actor said he was lucky to be mentored by  Salman.

"I don't know in which film I would be seen with him but I hope I get to work with him again and again. His blessings are with us, he inspires us for the work we do. And I hope he keeps liking my work," he added.

Pulkit made his debut in Bollywood with Kumar Mangat's 'Bittoo Boss' and has also acted in Farhan Akhtar's home production 'Fukrey'.

He said he was happy over the response to his trailer of 'O Teri', slated for release in March.
