Salman was the host of "Bigg Boss 7", which ended recently.
When asked whether Elli will be seen with him on the big screen, Salman said: "You will see Elli when a director or producer casts her. We have Elli in mind for sure ... I will say that straight out."
Elli made her Bollywood debut with "Mickey Virus".
However, Salman clarifies that nobody can take undue advantage of his friendship to get a film.
He said: "It's very clear that if I see something in a person only then that person will get to work with me."
"Earlier when I used to drink, they would think they will come and do their 'jugaad', but nothing used to work.
"If I feel that a person deserves it, only then it will happen or else nothing doing. If somebody makes my head turn twice that means the girl has something about her," he added.
