Bollywood biggie Salman Khan recently met Olympic silver medallist Mirabai Chanu and fans can’t stop talking about it. The 55-year-old shared a picture with her on social media. Both Salman and Mirabai posed for a click in which the actor is seen wearing a traditional Manipuri scarf around his neck. It was captioned, “Happy for u silver medalist @mirabai_chanu .. lovely meeting with u … best wishes always!”
Comments started pouring-both of admiration and disdain. Salman khan was heavily criticized for wearing a scarf that had two pictures of Sangai deer imprinted on it. Sangai is an endangered subspecies of brow-antlered deer found only in Manipur. The pictures of Sangai deer were printed in black colour on the white scarf, and the netizens started trolling Salman over his alleged involvement in the 1998 blackbuck poaching case.
A user commented, “Kala hiran vo bhi muffler par.”
“Bohot Memes Banenge…Ab Phirse Unka Guzara Hoga.,” said another.
A third comment read, “Hiran Devil Ke Piche.. Devil Hiran Ke Piche… Too Much Fun.”
The actor was convicted in April 2018 and sentenced to five years imprisonment for killing two endangers blackbucks during the shooting of the film ‘Hum Saath Saath Hain’. However, he was granted bail after 2 days of serving jail time.
