On August 19, a CISF officer — ASI Somnath Mohanty of Rayagada, became the talk of the town after a video of him stopping Bollywood superstar Salman Khan from entering the Mumbai airport and instructing him to follow the security protocol went viral on the internet. Salman was leaving for Russia to shoot for his upcoming film ‘Tiger 3’ opposite Katrina Kaif.
In the viral video, the officer stopped Salman who was walking towards the airport terminal to enter it, and gestured for him to first get clearance from the security checkpoint.Days later, media reports claimed that the officer was in trouble for his actions and that his phone was seized after he spoke to the media about the ‘viral video’, which was a breach of protocol.
A report quoted another CISF officer who claimed that the officer’s phone had been confiscated to ensure that he does not speak to the media about the incident. However, issuing a statement of sorts and clarifying the buzz around the CISF personnel being in trouble, the official Twitter handle of the CISF put out a tweet mentioning that the officer in question was ‘suitably rewarded for exemplary professionalism.’
Meanwhile, Salman Khan’s look from the spy thriller ‘Tiger 3’ has been leaked and has caused a tizzy on social media. A fan page on Instagram which goes by the name ‘salmanic_aryan’ has shared a few stills from the film, featuring the ‘Dabangg’ star, who is unrecognisable in his get up.Tiger 3 will also include Emraan Hashmi portraying the villian role and makers are making sure to make this movie a big action-entertainer.
