Kanpur: Salman Khan is one such actor, whose fan
following goes beyond imagination. No matter what wrong he does,
this Khan definitely knows to spawn mass hysteria. In a recent
incident in Kanpur, Salman Khan fans went on the rampage after a
rumour broke that the actor was in the town to shoot his new film
Dabangg 2, forcing police to resort to baton charge and
arrest six persons.
The fans gathered around Bajaria police station (Kanpur) since
afternoon, hoping to catch a glimpse of their favourite star. But,
when told that the actor is not coming, they went berserk and
vandalised the police station. Police resorted to baton charge to
control the crowd and arrested six people. "The crowd was standing
there hoping that Salman Khan is coming. To control the crowd we
had to restore to lathi charge. We have filed complaint against
many," said ACP Bharat Singh.
The madness and hype surrounding Salman even goes beyond this. A
while ago, the news was such that one of Salman's loyal fans had
committed murder to honour his promise of repaying a loan. The man
was inspired by Salman's one-liner from the film Wanted
due to which he dared to commit such a heinous crime.
