Industry wallahs have applauded Salman Khan's efforts in trying to get Sarabjit Singh out of Pakistani jail. However, a few section of the media are hinting that Salman might be trying to publicise his upcoming film Ek Tha Tiger through this noble act.
In 1990, after a string of bomb blasts in Pakistan, the famous ISI caught hold of a poor Indian farmer and linked him to this case. After 22 years, Salman Khan comes to his rescue.
Everything that the biggies do (small or big) invariably makes it to the headlines. Salman, who has been in the news for some time for trying to get Sarabjit Singh out of Pakistani jail is being surrounded by a new controversy. A certain section of the media is spreading the rumour that Salman wants to promote his film Ek Tha Tiger, which is why he is going out of his way to help Sarabjit return to his homeland.
Defending Salman Khan's intentions, noted Bollywood critic Taran Adarsh said, "Ek Tha Tiger is already creating a buzz, why would Salman draw negative attention by coming under scanner?" He further added, "Salman has always supported noble causes. He has never resorted to such gimmicks, yet his films have done so well. So, I think it would be ridiculous to associate his efforts as seeking publicity."
Another source too defended Salman Khan by saying that every Indian would empathise with Sarabjit, and Salman is no different. Well, we agree completely with that! If somebody is in a position to help, why shouldn't he? What say guys?
