"my request to all my fans is that you give it poor children"
Following the audience’s response to Antim: The Final Truth (2021), Salman Khan issued urgent requests to his fans.
The crime drama, also starring the Bollywood actor’s brother-in-law Aayush Sharma, follows his cop character take on a gangster.
An official remake of the Marathi movie, Mulshi Pattern (2018), Antim has received an extremely positive response from the public.
So much so, that some fans have been seen bathing a poster from the film in milk and dancing to celebratory music on the street.
Devotees of the Hindu deity, Lord Shiva, often bathe a symbol representing him called a Shivling with milk in this manner.
However, the Bollywood star urged them not to, advising them to give the milk to poor children instead.
Sharing a video, Salman Khan wrote:
“Some people do not even get water and you are wasting milk like this.
“If you must give milk, then my request to all my fans is that you give it poor children who did not get to drink milk.”
It comes just a day after the 55-year-old movie star made another plea to fans of his latest film.
Salman Khan revealed that some people have been setting off fireworks inside packed cinema halls.
Posting a video of this taking place, Khan told people not to carry out such dangerous actions.
Khan wrote: “Request all my fans not to take firecrackers inside the auditorium as it could prove to be a huge fire hazard thereby endangering your lives and also others.
“My request to theatre owners not to allow firecrackers to be taken inside the cinema and security should stop them from doing so at the entry point.
“Enjoy the film by all means but please please avoid this is my request to all my fans… thank you.”
Directed by Mahesh Manjrekar, Antim: The Final Truth was released on November 26, 2021.
According to Box Office India, it earned Rs 4.25 Crore (£424,000) on the first day, with numbers continuing to rise.
The movie has earned Rs. 102 million (£1 million) in total so far and is expected to sail through its opening weekend.
However, it has not yet overtaken Akshay Kumar’s own cop drama Sooryavanshi (2021) which is currently in the top spot.
It earned Rs. 26 Crore (£2.5 million) on its first day.
Salman Khan’s Antim co-stars Aayush Sharma and Mahima Makwana do not appear to have reacted to the fan incidents yet.
