Bollywood superstar Salman Khan has been at the centre of several controversies for his alleged bad behaviour in the past. The Bharat actor on Wednesday once again became a topic of intense discussions after a short clip of him slapping one of his security guards went viral on social media. But, the actor is earning plaudits for his act on this occasion.
In the viral video clip, the actor is seen walking through a crowd of fans while his security guards are making way for his safe passage. All of a sudden, he turns back and slaps one of his security guards, leaving him and all those present there stunned. While initially, his detractors were quick to slam him, calling it yet another example of his bad temperament, soon it emerged that the reason for his sudden anger was praiseworthy.
Entertainment journalist Samina Shaikh wrote, “Awesome @BeingSalmanKhan ! Haters will make up some negative stories but for FYI : Salman slapped his security guard who failed to take care of small kids getting trampled in crowd! That is SALMAN KHAN for YOU!.”
