Salman Khan is truly a man who follows what he preaches. This is truly rare in an Industry that just believes in preaching. Sallu said in his Dabangg style that he doesn’t need fans who think on communal grounds.
According to sources, it all started with a tweet of media person and film analyst, Komal Nahta, “Figures prove dat a section of Muslims has boycotted Salman’s Jai Ho coz dey havn’t liked his comments on Modi. Wil the hero do damage control?” Muslim clerics who were irked with Khan for praising Modi had asked their folowers to boycott Jai Ho.”
When quizzed about this, Salman said, “It might be possible that they must have not liked the movie. They might have not liked its content. But this reason (what Komal Nahta gave) is false and shouldn’t be promoted. In our film industry there is no Hindu, no Muslim, no Sikh and no Christian. We all are one, we all are humans. We all are entertainers. And that is what we do. And I do not believe that my fans will listen to any of this rubbish and not go to watch the movie. It might be possible that they must have not liked the movie. But if that is to be a reason, than I am going to be embarrassed with that particular section of fans and I don’t want them to be my fans.”
The Dabangg Khan further added, “If they (fans) can’t understand love, emotion, respect and the need of doing the right thing, then I rather have this film be the biggest disaster than it working for wrong reasons.”
Well in Bollywood, stars are constantly compromising to please someone or the other and so amidst all this Sallu’s candid confession is truly like a breathe of fresh air.
