The long list of actors who consider Salman Khan a mentor apparently includes Telugu star Ram Charan Teja. Salman, who is currently shooting for his new film Yevadu in Hyderabad, dropped by Ramoji Film City on July 9 to pay the actor a surprise visit. Ram Charan, son of superstar Chiranjeevi, is starring in the remake of Zanjeer as Inspector Vijay, the role that made Amitabh Bachchan famous in 1973.

Salman, known to be extremely generous to his friends, seems to make time for his protégés no matter how busy he is. Just days ago, he summoned aspiring actor Suraj Pancholi, who is charged with abetting the suicide of actress Jiah Khan, to Hyderabad for a pep talk.
