Bollywood superstar Salman Khan, who plays a common man in his upcoming action flick Jai Ho, slammed Narendra Modi's critics by saying that Modi doesn't have to apologise for the 2002 riots as courts and enquiry commissions gave him a clean chit.
Salman was always bold to express his opinions and never cared for being politically correct. Branded as the bad boy of Bollywood from the beginning, Salman has always dared to say things that others intended to say, but never said. Salman was speaking in an interview with Headlines Today Editor, Rahul Kanwal.
Salman also clarified that he is just a people's man and is not in a position to endorse the prime minister candidates of the country. Rahul Kanwal was trying to dig deep with asking more questions about the reason for Salman's moral support to Modi, but Salman answered them with carefully chosen words.
Rahul indirectly asked him whether he is supporting BJP in the coming election. Salman answered, "I don't vote for parties, I vote for my friends. In my constituency I vote for Baba Siddique and Priya Dutt as I know they are doing a great job for the people." He said that it is not him, but the people of the respective constituency should choose their representatives.
He also praised Modi to sky heights saying, "I found him very cultured and he treated my sister in a very respectful manner. I was amazed to see his voters and fans. They are very happy with him and they said that he is a good man."
A lot of people speculates that Salman's public appearance with Modi will be a boost to Modi's election campaign.
