SAL­MAN ASKS HIS FOL­LOW­ERS TO RE­SPECT SUSHANT’S FANS

Hindustan Times (Jalandhar) - - HTCITY -

fter the death of Sushant Singh Ra­jput, big­wigs of Bol­ly­wood have been get­ting trolled by the late ac­tor’s fans. Sal­man Khan, too, is be­ing tar­geted for the same. But now, Khan has taken to Twit­ter to say that Ra­jput’s

Afans’ pain must be re­spected. “A re­quest to all my fans to stand with sushant’s fans n not to go by the lan­guage n the curses used but to go with the emo­tion be­hind it...,” he wrote.

Many are see­ing this as a PR ac­tiv­ity, while some feel Khan has done a “sen­si­ble thing”. Singer Sona Mo­ha­p­a­tra, tweeted, “A ‘large hearted’ PR move from the one & only poster boy of toxic mas­culin­ity! Of course he felt no such need to tweet or apol­o­gise for the vile threats that his dig­i­tal paid army sent out to in­tim­i­date & bully oth­ers in the past...”

But film­maker Ashoke Pan­dit doesn’t agree. “Though Sal­man is be­ing tar­geted for no rhyme or rea­son, he has done the sen­si­ble, hu­mane thing as he doesn’t want things to go in the neg­a­tive zone, when some­one has passed away.”HTC
