If you thought that the recent imprisonment may have lowered Salman Khan's status, ratings and popularity, you are wrong. In fact, one of Salman's strong supporters, David Dhawan, feels that the entire episode will only increase Salman's popularity by leaps and bounds.
"There's a strong positive wave for Salman. I feel, his fan-base has only increased manifold after this incident. Thousands of people, who don't even know him, came out strongly in Salman's support. Take it from me, he is only going to go higher in popularity stakes and his films will only open huge henceforth. He's a super-hero," David tells me.
Meanwhile, Salman has decided to make up for the lost time [hair problem and the recent imprisonment] by shooting for films while participating in concerts abroad. "We've decided to shoot Partner [Salman, Govinda] in Canada, while he participates for shows simultaneously," David reveals, adding in the same breath, "In fact, Salman is going all out to ensure that his producers don't suffer in the bargain."
