Salman Khan is a hero for his younger brother, Sohail Khan. At the recent relaunching of The Kapil Sharma Show, Sohail Khan recalls about the horrifying incident when he and brother, Salman Khan got entrapped in a throng of angry, unruly fans. The Khan brothers who made a special appearance at the Kapil Sharma along with dad, Salim Khan brought to light the narrow incident when he and Salma Khan were beaten up by their fans outside their house. Sohail stated that the incident unfolded when a group of boisterous fans started hurling abuses at him, right outside the Khans' residence, Galaxy Apartments.
Sohail, as per reports was said to have not taken the abuses lightly and got into a fist-fight with the fans completely oblivious to the eyes around him. Eyewitnesses are said to have stated that suddenly a gang of 5-6 people emerged to join the fight when Salman Khan, came to the rescue of Sohail from the bunch of rowdy fans by also getting himself beaten up. After all, what are brothers for? Sohail also revealed that Salman was hit by bamboo sticks on his back, applauding him for his bravery saying that it was his Big Brother, Salman Khan who saved the day.
As per sources, the group of belligerent fans was arrested later and taken to the police station. Salman and his father Salim Khan, however, refused to file charges against the fans and decided to let them off scotch-free.
The incident reinstates that the life of a celebrity isn’t always lights and cameras but also a few bunches too. Sohail was last seen on the big screen as a police officer in Abhiraj Minawala's Loveyatri, which marked the debut of Aayush Sharma and Warina Hussain. He made a special appearance in the film with Arbaaz Khan. Salman, meanwhile is currently shooting for the final schedule of Ali Abbas Zafar's Bharat. The period drama, which also features Katrina Kaif, Disha Patani, Nora Fatehi, Sunil Grover and Tabu in pivotal roles, is slated to hit the theatres on Eid 2019.
