Does this look like a ‘forced’ hug? Sana is furious
Actor Sana Khan was up for a not-so-pleasant surprise on Tuesday, when a video of her hugging actor Salman Khan went viral for all the wrong reasons. Sana walked the red carpet at a recently held TV awards show in Mumbai, and when she spotted Salman, the two exchanged a hug. What made it news was Salman’s closed fists.
“I still can’t believe that a normal hug was trending, trolling, and rolling,” says Sana. “People just blew it out of proportion because [Salman] had a closed fist, and some dumb people even called it an awkward hug.” The actor adds that it’s only normal for people to wear backless clothes at a red carpet event.
Did she feel that Salman was uncomfortable even for a moment? Sana replies, “Who the hell am I to make him feel uncomfortable? It’s stupid to put somebody down by saying such a nasty thing. It’s not [as if] I went to hug him and he didn’t recognise me.”
But why that closed fist? “Maybe he hugs like that. I don’t know. I think the best person [whom] to ask this would be Salman,” says Sana, who has known Salman ever since she first appeared in 2012 on the show Bigg Boss (hosted by Salman) and later worked with him in Jai Ho (2014).
Lashing out at those who are calling it a forced hug, Sana retorts, “I’m not a psychopath to hug somebody if the person doesn’t want to talk to me. I’m not someone who makes people stand and keep talking and falling on their lap. I am on good terms with Salman...” The actor shares that she had a brief two-minute chat with Salman. “For a moment, Salman didn’t recognise me. [Then] he complimented me that I look very nice. And I said, ‘Yes, I’ve dropped 7kg’, and he is like, ‘It’s showing,’” reveals Sana.
Salman Khan has been in the [film] industry for over 25 years, so [I] don’t think backless even matters to him… he has seen more than that. Let’s not talk like five-yearolds SANA KHAN, ACTOR
