Salman Khan’s Tiger Zinda Hai has landed in trouble in Jaipur with protesters vandalising theatres over an old clip of the actor making an alleged casteist remark.
The morning shows of Tiger Zinda Hai had to be stopped in some cinema halls across Rajasthan after members of the Valmiki community raised slogans, tore and burnt posters of the film.
In the clip which resurfaced on social media, the actor, had reportedly used the word “Bhangi” while discussing his dancing skills. This irked several people and also resulted in protests in Jaipur, where the film’s posters were torn and theaters were vandalized to stop the screening of the movie, according to a report in ANI.
The protests started from Ajmer and soon spread to Jaipur and Kota, leading to the cancellation of the morning shows in several cinema halls. The police remanded several people in custody. The President of the Action Committee of the community recently lodged a police complaint against the actor, demanding a strict action against him.
