"One of the million reasons why we love this man."
A video of Bollywood actor Salman Khan slapping a security guard has gone viral on social media, however, it has left people split as to whether his actions were right or not.
The incident is believed to have happened during the premiere of Bharat on June 4, 2019, which was attended by fellow Bollywood stars, including Salman’s co-stars Katrina Kaif and Sunil Grover.
In the video, Salman is seen leaving a cinema hall amidst a crowd of people. He then suddenly turns and slaps one of the security guards who was making way for the actor.
Though it is not clear what caused Salman to react like that, it was reported that the actor got angry because the guard had pushed a young fan.
