NEW DELHI: Indian superstar Salman Khan was trolled on Twitter after he inaugurated a driving school
in Dubai. Salman (51) was booked in a hit-and-run case last year
Salman Khan cut the inaugural ribbon at a new branch of Dubai’s Belhasa Driving Centre in Al Quoz, but the incongruity of Salman inaugurating an outfit that puts people behind the wheel was perhaps lost on the actor himself, his many fans and the Dubai driving school that invited him, but it wasn’t lost on Twitter.
The social media trollers went to town on the event, invoking convicted rapist Gurmeet Ram Rahim, writer Chetan Bhagat and Rahul Gandhi.
It seemed not to matter to anyone there that Salman Khan was tried for culpable homicide not amounting to murder in a hit-and-run in which he is accused of killing one person. Salman’s lawyers argued that the actor had not been driving and last year, he was acquitted by the Bombay High Court in a verdict that was widely met with outrage.
