An unconfirmed post that claimed Salman Khan fell in love with Pooja Hegde while filming Kisi Ka Bhai Kisi Ki Jaan recently went popular on social media. One of Salman’s buddies has now responded angrily to the unfounded rumour.
“Woh log jo aise wahiyat khabar phailate hain, kuch to sharm karo (those who spread such irresponsible rumours should have some shame). The girl (Pooja Hegde) is Salman’s daughter’s age. Just because they are doing a film together (Kisi Ka Bhai Kisi Ki Jaan) some idiots may feel it is good publicity for the film. But it is embarrassing,” the friend said, who further added that Salman “doesn’t care” about addressing the rumour.
Last week, Salman Khan and Pooja Hegde were rumoured to be the newest ccouples in Bollywood by a self-described film critic by the name of Umair Sandhu. He tweeted: “BREAKING NEWS: New Couple in Town !!! Mega Star #SalmanKhan fell in love with #PoojaHegde !! His production house also signed her for next 2 films !! They are spending time together now a days !! Confirmed by Salman Khan close sources.”
Some of Salman’s fans threw in a sarcastic comment like, “2 movie contract… isn’t it obvious they will spend time.” Few criticised the actor, pin-pointing the age gap between them, “Pooja is Salman’s daughter’s age if not younger. How disgusting this Bollywood is and then they claim love is blind. Pooja is surely getting a huge inheritance if this goes through.”
Farhad Samji is directing Kisi Ka Bhai Kisi Ki Jaan, which will also star Shehnaaz Gill of Bigg Boss 13 fame and Palak Tiwari, the daughter of television actress Shweta Tiwari.
