Salman Khan is known for his friendship, and camaraderie but a video from IIFA 2023 pre-award ceremony is going viral for all the wrong reasons on social media. Vicky Kaushal is shoved to the side in the video as he seeks to shake hands with Salman Khan.
Netizens are sharing a video in which Vicky Kaushal is seen taking pictures with a fan, but Salman comes with his security and walks towards Vicky Kaushal. Vicky appears to greet Salman by reaching out his hand. A security guard, however, pushes Vicky aside when Salman does not reciprocate the gesture and only glances at him before continuing onward. Vicky’s facial gestures clearly show his attempt to shake hands again, but Salman appears to miss him and continues without acknowledging him.
The video quickly went viral, sparking a social media fan battle. While some accused Salman of having an unnecessary attitude and that he should have at least shaken hands, if not hugged him, some Salman fans defended him and argued that he simply didn’t recognzse him.
Salman Khan, Vicky Kaushal, Farah Khan, Rakul Preet Singh, Abhishek Bachchan, Vicky Kaushal, and Nora Fatehi held a press conference on Thursday to kick off the IIFA 2023 journey. The big celebrations begin today with Sobha IIFA Rocks, hosted by Farah Khan Kunder and Rajkummar Rao, and will include performances by Amit Trivedi and numerous prominent artists, including Badshah, Sunidhi Chauhan, Nucleya, and Sukhbir Singh.
Meanwhile, Salman Khan has completed the filming of ‘Tiger 3’, as he announced to the media at the event on Thursday. This year’s Diwali will see the release of the film.
Vicky Kaushal, on the other hand, is looking forward to the release of his next romantic comedy Zara Hatke Zara Bachke, in which he will appear alongside Sara Ali Khan. Helmed by Laxman Utekar, the film is set to be released in theatres on 2 June, 2023.
