Much has been said about the Salman Khan and his tryst with law. In an interview in 2019, the actor’s father Salim Khan had opened up on how the family dealt with it. Bollywood lyricist and Salman’s father, Salim Khan had said he felt guilty while drinking water at home when Salman was in jail. Salim was speaking with Neelesh Mishra in an interview last year.
Salim said, “Accident ke case me usko 18 din jail hui thi. Bail hone ke pehle he was there for 18 days in jail. Law me ye provision hi nahi hai ki ek bacche ko agar saza hoti hai to uski maa ko kitni takleef hoti hai. Usne kya kiya hai? Law me provision nahi hai ki iske maa ko ya iske baap ko takleef hogi to ise ye saza nahi milni chahiye. Hum log paani peete waqt guilty feel karte the, raat ko AC chalate waqt guilty feel karte the. Wo kaise halat mein so raha hoga, Usne bataya tha aisa jagah hai jaha dari bichsa dete hain, balti rakh dete hain, pankha wankha hota nahi.”
He also opened up about his visit to Salman while he was in Jodhpur jail. “343 qaidi number – Mai Jodhpur gaya (Prisoner number 343, when I went to Jodhpur ), they were talking about prisoners. The people told me, ‘Hukum aap baitho (Please sit, sir.)’ and they were talking, ‘343 ko le aao, 343 aa gaya’.Wo aya to 343 Salman tha (Bring 343, 343 came and it was Salman).” Salim had tears in his eyes as he said Salman was felt bad that he hurt his parents in the process,” he added.
Salim Khan also revealed why he will never move out of his apartment in Bandra.
“Zanjeer likhne ke baad hi mere aise halat hue ki mai bandstand pe aa sakta tha. Jab mai yaha aya samne dekha koi building nahi banegi, peeche acchi garden.Maine socha this is my last flat. 73 se yaha hu. There have been occasions where Salman ne kaha penthouse le lijiye, bungalow le lijiye. I told him I am very happy here. Meri wajah se wo bhi yaha hai. Halanki usko kaafi pareshani aur takleef hai chota sa flat hai usme. Adhe me uska gym hai, adhe me khud rehta hai. You will be surprised to see anybody, not a star but anybody living in such a small flat. Uske paas total area 1000 square feet ka hai, usime sare kapde bhi hain, joote bhi hain, kutte bhi hain. Mujhe lagta hai ki mai kahi badi jagah pe jaaun to he will be comfortable but mera dil nahi karta,” he said.
