Salman Khan is in Dubai for Da-bangg Tour. In an interaction with the press, Salman was asked about the current cross-border tensions between India and Pakistan. He was asked whether art would help bridge differences between the two countries but the Bajrangi Bhaijaan star simply smiled and said, “Insha’allah”. Clearly Bollywood is not too comfortable addressing the contentious issue which may lead to further controversies for them back home. Salman predictably parried the question and moved on to other topics. Katrina Kaif, Sonakshi Sinha, Jacqueline Fernandez and Daisy Shah were also present at the press conference where Salman Khan’s young nephew Aahil made a special appearance.
Tensions between India and Pakistan have risen in the past in the wake of the Pulwama attacks in February. Bollywood had called for a blanket ban on Pakistani artistes and Pakistan had stopped various Bollywood films from airing in its cinemas. Several stars had voiced their opinion on the same with most stars from Bollywood supporting the ban. Salman Khan himself had removed Atif Aslam’s song from his upcoming film Notebook following the backlash. Salman also made a hefty contribution to Pulwama martyrs fund, Bharat ke Veer.
Da-bangg Tour is a Bollywood concert that will be held at Dubai Festival City. The gates open tomorrow, March 15th, at 6 pm and show starts at 9 pm. Aside from Salman Khan, Katrina Kaif, Daisy Shah, Sonakshi Sinha, Prabhu Deva and Manish Paul among others will perform onstage.
The tickets begin at 100 dirhams and you can purchase them from here.
