Mumbai: Bollywood star Salman Khan is under pressure and it has nothing to do with the rash driving case against him. Apparently, bhai’s latest headache is related to statements made by Shahrukh Khan and Aamir Khan surrounding the rising intolerance in the country.
Sources close to the actor say that there is ‘immense pressure’ on the actor to say ‘something’ about intolerance as other two Khans have said something and it would look bad if Salman had absolutely nothing to say on this issue.
“Its kinda cool to say something about intolerance these days even if you don’t know how and why it all started in the first place. Bhai has not said anything and SRK fans are mocking us on twitter. This is the least bhai can do for us. Maybe he can start off with all the negative comments that Prem Ratan Dhan Payo has received,” said a fan of the actor.
Sources also say that Salman himself is keen on saying something but does not want to look stupid.
“He is going through some intensive training on current affairs and bought last 6 months editions of Competition Success Review to keep himself abreast of all the latest happenings. Soon he is going to make a statement on intolerance for the benefit of all his fans,” said Shera, Salman’s bodyguard .
Meanwhile, brother’s Sohail and Arbaaz have requested Salman against making any comments.
“It’s not that bhai is scared to say anything about intolerance. He is more comfortable with dialogues that are written for him. Last time he said something about Yakub Memon and Salim saab had to do all the damage control. Kuch logon ko intellectual baatein bouncer jaati hai, bhai ko toh ball hi nahi dikhti. Bhai ko intolerance ki spelling bhi aa gayi toh bohot badi baat hai,” said Sohail Khan.
Sohail Khan’s wasn’t entirely wrong. At 1 am yesterday, Salman tweeted ‘Ye intoleruns kya hai’, which got 3475 Retweets and close to 5000 likes on twitter.
