Salman Khan reacts!
Salman Khan, upon learning of the incident, took to his preferred platform, X, to address the matter directly. Expressing his concern, the actor stated, "I'm hearing about fireworks inside theatres during Tiger 3." Urging caution, he continued, "Let's enjoy the film without putting ourselves and others at risk. Stay safe."
The video captures the explosive display of fireworks, including rockets, within the confines of the cinema hall, creating an environment of excitement but also prompting concerns about safety. Viewers inside the theatre can be seen running and panicking as the unexpected pyrotechnics unfolded during the screening.
This isn't the first time Salman Khan's film screenings have ignited such fervent celebrations. In 2021, a similar incident occurred during the screening of Antim: The Final Truth. Responding to that episode, Salman had previously requested fans to avoid carrying firecrackers into the auditorium, emphasizing the potential fire hazard and risk to lives.
In his plea, Salman appealed not only to his ardent supporters but also to theatre owners and security personnel, urging them to prevent the entry of firecrackers into cinemas. Despite the joyous spirit surrounding his Diwali releases, the actor prioritizes the safety of his fans and emphasizes a celebration that doesn't compromise anyone's well-being.
