Bollywood superstar Salman Khan gets entrapped in a legal issue after an FIR had been registered against him for allegedly assaulting an anti-corruption activist during the promotion of his film in Kanpur in August. The FIR was registered on Tuesday on the orders of a local court.
During the promotion of his film Bodyguard, activist and ex IIT-ian Omendra Bharat and some others crowded around Salman's vehicle to present him a Gandhi cap and requested him to join their agitation.
