For the unversed, on August 20, a video showing Salman Khan arriving at the airport and a CISF Jawan stopping him began doing the rounds on social media. The officer in question stopped him and asked for him to first get clearance from the security checkpoint. While netizens were all praises, reports claimed that his phone had been seized to prevent him from talking to the media.
Another CISF personnel spoke about the incident to TNIE and said, “The mobile phone of Mohanty has been seized as he interacted with the media, and it is a breach of protocol. His mobile phone was seized to ensure he is not able to speak with the media further about the incident.”
On the work front, Salman Khan is currently shooting for Maneesh Sharma’s Tiger 3 in Russia with Katrina Kaif. He also shot an extended cameo for the Shah Rukh Khan starrer Pathan. Besides these films, Khan will also be seen in Antim: The Final Truth and Kabhi Eid Kabhi Diwali. In a couple of weeks, the superstar will also take over the reins as the host for Colors’ Bigg Boss 15, and fans are super excited.
