Apart from being a star with many blockbusters, Salman Khan is also known for his controversies. This week brings another one to light. The actor is in news again for slapping a security guard who was controlling the crowd as he was walking towards his car.
The incident happened after the special screening of Salman’s Bharat (2019), which released yesterday. The actor is seen going towards his car after exiting the multiplex where the film was screened. While he was walking with his team of bodyguards, hundreds of his fans surrounded his entourage to catch his glimpse.
Suddenly, Salman stops, looks behind and hits a security personnel on his face. It seems that the actor was offended by the way the personnel was pushing one of his fans (who cannot be seen in the video being shared online). He glared at the guard and walked off.
We have come across celebrities scolding security personnel for misbehaving with fans, but it is not often that you see a big superstar hitting one. The incident has sparked off debate on social media. While Salman is being criticized for his act, there are others who are taking his side too.
