Salman Khan’s recent visit to his Kick co-star Jacqueline Fernandez’s home country, Sri Lanka has called off for yet another controversy for him. The actor’s visit at Colombo to campaign for President Mahindra Rajapaksa, has sparked rage among the Tamil groups.
The Tamil group protested outside Salman’s Mumbai residence on Sunday, and was keen on continuing the protest until the actor apologizes for his participation to campaign for the Srilankan President. Indian political parties MDMK and DMK criticized Salman Khan and said it was not just the issue of Tamils in that country, but also that of the Indian fishermen.
Rajapaksa is under fire from political parties in Tamil Nadu as he was at the helm of affairs in 2009 when civilian casualties in the Tamil-dominated areas in Sri Lanka’s northeast reportedly peaked during the last leg of the war between Lankan army and LTTE.
2015 has just begun and controversies have started following Salman Khan. Now where will this controversy lead the actor in the New Year? Will have to await.
