Contrary to rumours, the CISF (Central Industrial Security Force) officer who asked Salman Khan to obey security routine at Mumbai airport was not punished. The CISF tweeted that the officer had been “appropriately awarded for exceptional professionalism.”
Salman Khan was spotted arriving at the airport on August 20 to fly to Russia, where he is presently filming Tiger 3. Salman was on his way to the airport terminal when the CISF officer in question stopped him and told him he needed to clear the security checkpoint first. He also instructed the photographers to remain at a safe distance. While his professionalism was praised by fans, there were claims in certain publications that his phone had been confiscated to prevent him from speaking to the media.
Responding to one such report, the CISF tweeted, “The contents of this tweet are incorrect & without factual basis. In fact, the officer concerned has been suitably rewarded for exemplary professionalism in the discharge of his duty. @PIBHomeAffairs.”
Meanwhile, Salman Khan is filming Tiger 3, the third part of the blockbuster franchise starring Katrina Kaif, in Russia. Fans are captivated by Salman’s bearded disguise in one of the photos from the sets that have appeared on the internet. The team has a busy overseas filming schedule ahead of them, which includes stops in Austria and Turkey.
Ek Tha Tiger (2012), directed by Kabir Khan, was the debut film in the franchise. Tiger Zinda Hai 2 was directed by Ali Abbas Zafar (2017). Maneesh Sharma is now directing the franchise’s third instalment. Salman is set to return to India in October to film Bigg Boss 15 for Colors TV. On Saturday, the show’s debut trailer, which featured him and legendary actress Rekha, was unveiled.
