Bollywood superstar Salman Khan on the occasion of his 55th birthday on Sunday said he considers muting the celebrations this year due to the pandemic and also urged his fans to follow the COVID-19 norms.
Salman at his Panvel farmhouse, told reporters:
“This time we will not have any birthday celebrations. Only our family will be here (Panvel) and no one else. This year we are not planning to do anything because this has been a terrible year for everybody, and people have faced a lot of difficulties.”
“Hopefully, next year everything will go back to normal. I hope that everyone is happy, healthy and safe”, he added.
Amid the pandemic, Salman has appealed to his fans to not gather outside his house in Mumbai on the occasion of his birthday.
When asked about the release date of his upcoming film Radhe, Salman said:
“It will be released at an appropriate time when everything will go back to normal. It will be released at a time when everyone will start going back to the theatres with little risk of virus.”
“We will release Radhe on Eid if everything will go back to normal. But the movie is less important; the safety and health of moviegoers is the most important thing. The release of Radhe can wait.”
Currently, Salman is also busy hosting the latest season of the Tv Reality Show Bigg Boss 14. He will next be seen on the big screen in the movie directed by Prabhudheva which has been titled ‘Radhe – Your Most Wanted Bhai.’ The shoot of the movie got completed in October 2020. The Bajrani Bhaijaan actor is also shooting for his forthcoming movie Antim: The Final Truth co-starring Aayush Sharma which is directed by Mahesh Manjrekar. In the film, he will be playing the main lead as a Sikh.
