The press is often blamed for asking banal questions, often too personal and sometimes plain inflammatory. This is exactly what happened when the Dabangg team was in Nagpur to promote their film.
Salman Khan, Sonakshi Sinha, Arbaaz Khan, Sonu Sood, music director Wajid and Sohail Khan were promoting their upcoming film Dabangg in Nagpur when a reporter cheekily asked why they were emphasizing their film as an Eid release even though the Hindu festival of Ganesh Chaturthi was around the same time. Salman didn’t want to reply to the malicious question and refused to answer.
Though Salman Khan maintained a dignified silence, Sonakshi was quick to defend her co-star. She tweeted, “Just to create controversy or raise TRPs, using religion is disgusting. Especially with someone like him (Salman). When will these guys (reporters) grow up and see the broader picture?”
We agree with Sonakshi here. The disrespectful reporter should have known better, the Khan family is one of the most secular families in Bollywood. Salman Khan’s sister Arpita is married to a Hindu, his sisters-in-law, Malaika Arora and Seema Sachdev, are Christian and Hindu respectively. If that isn’t secular enough, we don’t know what is.
