The former US prez’s security took care of him in Ireland
‘Ek Tha Tiger’ doesn’t need a great marketing campaign considering what’s really been happening behind the scenes!
Director Kabir Khan confirms that there was a clash between Salman Khan and erstwhile US president Bill Clinton, while they were shooting for the film in Ireland.
Apparently, Salman was booked into the Hotel Shelbourne in Dublin for the length of his shooting stint. And coincidentally, Bill Clinton happened to visit Ireland at the same time. He was put up at the same hotel, and, get this – on the same floor as Salman! Naturally the former US President had security only of the highest order.
But Bill’s secret service agents were bewildered at the number of frenzied Salman fans trying to push their way into the actor’s room at the oddest hours! The SS certainly couldn’t afford this and risk anyone getting too close to Clinton’s vicinity in the bargain. So they sprung into action and took over Salman’s security details for the three days that he was there – this included his own personal security as well!
Kabir Khan says, “I was staying on the same floor and to sanitize the area, they had to take care of Salman’s personal security too. It was amazing!”
Perhaps Sallu’s right when he says he doesn’t need to go to Hollywood to prove a point. When people with experience of the White House taking charge of you, who needs to look at the West!
