EXCLUSIVE: Salman Khan's father Salim Khan takes a walk on road amid lockdown? Here's what he has to sayEXCLUSIVE: Salman Khan's father Salim Khan takes a walk on road amid lockdown? Here's what he has to say

Superstar Salman Khan had recently slammed people who were violating coronavirus lockdown rules and called them jokers. Pinkvilla recently learnt that acclaimed screenwriter Salim Khan has reportedly been taking a half an hour walk on Bandra Promenade every morning. The government clearly notified that every citizen that no one is allowed to step out unless they are going to buy essentials or are amidst an emergency. 

A Bandra resident reached out to us, informing, that she finds Salim Khan and his friends taking a walk on the Bandra Promenade every morning. Requesting anonymity, she revealed, “Initially, we thought maybe it’s a one off thing but over the last 3 weeks, we have seen him walk for half an hour every alternate day. He comes by 8.30 am and is around till 9 am." She further questioned, "While other citizens are receiving so much flak for stepping out needlessly, and why are stars and their families above the rule?”

We reached out to Bandra police, Senior Police Inspector Vijayalaxmi Hiremath, who in return informed us, "We have received a picture anonymously but Salim Khan's face is not recognisable in it since it has been clicked from the backside. We will take the required action once we verify the report." 
 
 
 
 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by Salman Khan (@beingsalmankhan) on

When we reached out to Salim Khan, he clarified to Pinkvilla, "I have been adviced by the doctors to continue my walks as I have lower back issues. I have been walking for the last 40 years and the doctor has told me if I stop suddenly, it might affect my back more. Moreover, I have the pass issued by the government till April 30, and I am following all the norms possible. It is only on medical grounds, that I am allowed to take a walk outside. I am a law-abiding citizen but people tend to pick on us given that we are celebrities. I am not the only one who walks around. There are so many people I see who are strolling with their pets. But no one reports them! Anyway, I am ensuring I take all safety measures and also, I hope everyone else does too."

Meanwhile, the lockdown in the country has been extended until May 3. Cases of coronavirus have reached over 18000 in India with over 530 deaths reported.

Appreciate the fact that he didn't go to the farm house which he has built over the years with all the facilities and comfort but chose stay at an Apartment like every other citizen of our country with minimum space.

Who issued pass to salim khan to go for walk when the whole country is under lock down? Why his family left this old man in mumbai and they r enjoying in panvel? Salim khan thinks he is a learned man but he is misusing his celebrity status. When common people are not allowed to go out here these bollywood folks break the rule of land.

Dear iulia fan, iulia is not the solution the way you expect it to be for the issues you are facing, you want iulia to be in Salma aunty place or the complete attention to iulia or whatsoever, it doesn’t work like that, I don’t think Salma Aunty, Salim Sir, or the family to be blamed for anything, there are issues but iulia is not the solution. Salim Uncle is adamant, but all are fine, nothing to pick about them. Much Love.

Salman's low IQ fans are always obsessed with Iulia.Here people r commenting abt lockdown violation by salim khan but Salman fans bring Iulia here. Did Iulia violate lockdown rules? Hope they dont blame Iulia for Salman's hit nd run case and black buck shooting. Salim khan being a senior citizen should be careful going out for walks. Mumbai is the worst city in India to affected. He should cooperate with the govt and health officials. Getting a pass is not a big deal. As a responsible citizen his aim should be to flatten the curve and not getting exposed going out for walks.

Salim Sir, the thinking should go this way ‘I have been walking for 40 years, but now am indoor and have found my alternative’ than ‘I have been walking for 40 years, so I walk today as well’. It’s not about you getting it or someone else getting it, abiding the law or not abiding the law, its about being a celeb setting the example by doing the right. People look up to you, as well as people will be quick to look down upon you. If you are doing things, because others also doing the same, then what is the difference between you and others? If you are a non celeb no one would care, they may get reported or not, may get discussed in a small circle or may go unnoticed, you are a celeb, and you are bound to receive the flak, bring it on the platform and discuss. Choice is yours!

That's a lame excuse he is giving that doctors want him to walk. Which doctor will advise a very senior citizen who can barely walk without help to go out for walking during corona scare. There is a pic where he is walking with his staff where no social distancing is maintained. How could his family members leave this old man in mumbai while rest of them.are in panvel. How come his mom instead of staying with her husband has left him alone in mumbai. Atleast they could hv taken this old man to panvel where he could walk freely. How did the govt issue pass to salim khan when other elderly are not issued. Too many questions. They should stop preaching to others and follow rule of law

Fakewarya fans stop getting jealous of Salman and focus on cheap third grade actress Bollywood's most famous s**t Aishwarya Rai Bachchan's latest drama of playing victim against her in-laws. Once again she's portraying herself as a poor little helpless thing and painting her in-laws as evil. Damn! Love how this woman comes up with a new way to gain sympathy lol

Salim khan behaves as though he is the most wisest man. But in reality he is a creep. Having two wives under the same roof and now lecturing abt law abiding citizen. Who is that doctor who has advised him to go for a walk during lockdown. No doctor will advise an very senior citizen to stroll outside during corona scare.If he really wanted to walk he could hv gone to panvel where there is open space for walking. When Salman's free loaders sisters family are with Salman what prevented salim khan from going there? Salman's attention seeking mom too is with her son.

Bollywood is full of filth. They hv extra marital affairs, cheat etc. Salman's family too is creepy. But they give lecture to others. Salim khan shouldn't hv gone for morning walks if he was a responsible citizen. There should not be one rule for celebrities and one for common man

Salman's mom is not shy as people think. She is everywhere in parties Dabangg tour etc. I hv never seen any actors mother always clinging on to son to get fame. She even goes to shoot locations. And now Salim khan has to risk his life going out for walks. What kind of law abiding citizen is he? When common man is not allowed to go out for walks here these celebrities break the law and get passes.

Salman's mom is camera shy and stays away from limelight mostly. BTW, Salim Khan is not a creep. He married Salma and Helen according to the law and he didn't keep both wives under the same roof. Salma and Helen live separately. You know who is a creep? That philanderer Amitabh Bachchan who is still with Rekha while being married to Jaya. He even had affairs with Parveen Babi and Zeenat Aman. By your logic Dharmendra is also a creep since he married Prakash Kaur and Hema Malini. Both of them changed their religion to get married. Rajesh Khanna was another creep who had a live-in relationship with Anu Mahendra while being married to Dimple Kapadia. Kamal Hasan is the biggest creep who lived with three women without marriage. Boney Kapoor is the biggest cheapo who impregnated Sridevi while his first wife was living with him under the same roof. Raj Kapoor was the most famous playboy. Stop spreading your illiteracy...it only shows your jealousy.

Why did Salman's mom abandon her husband in mumbai while she is enjoying with other members of family in panvel? Salman's mom is a biggest attention seeker leeching on Salman's fame while her husband has to spend time taking walks inspite of lockdown.Disgusting family. And they give lectures abt what is an ideal family.

Salman's mom always clings to her son abandoning her husband. Strange family. She is always on Dabangg tours where her son dances with girls. At this age she loves those dances instead of living with her husband. I think she is taking vengeance on salim khan for having brought Helen home. Poor old man has to spend time going on walks during corona scare risking his life. Dysfunctional family.

Is it illegal to spend time with family and kids? Poor women in your family are probably treated like cattle and a man's property who are not allowed to be away from a husband ever for a minute. Not every family is as terrible as yours.

Hey Aishwarya Rai Bachchan's fan, stop being jealous of Salman's loving and supportive family. Why don't you tell Aish to stay away from her father-in-law and stop trying to steal Amitabh from Jaya. What a cheap woman this Aishwarya is....she double timed both father and son. When Aaradhya was born, people used to ask who is the father...Senior Bachchan or Junior Bachchan. Not to mention her 5 previous relationships with all sorts of men. Her parents supported her in all her wild adventures. Disgusting family. And they give lectures about being dignified lol

The c*u****a womanizer and faltu Third class program big boss host, gives lectures to everyone but cannot control his own father. Medical problem, yeah. We all need to take our morning walks. But we do yoga at home to follow the lockdown orders. Shame on these people and so called celebrities. They are a disgrace to society.

Salman's family behave as though they r close knit. But in reality all are freeloaders. None of his family members hv jobs. They leech on Salman's stardom fame and money. Now his mom and sisters hv abandoned salim khan in galaxy while they r enjoying in panvel. If they were a responsible family why didn't they take this old man to panvel where there is ample space for walking. Maharashtra and especially Mumbai has the max cases of covid 19. Vicky kaushals building is also sealed now. Why is Salim khan risking himself by going out?

In the USA you can go out for a walk alone, with a friend as long as you keep 6 feet and also take a walk with kids. I don't know why cops harass you in India even if you take dog out for a walk.

Every country has its own rules. Evwn in the US there are people given fines for violating rules. Given its large population India has a lot at stake if social distancing is not in place. I doubt Salim Khan and his friends are maintaining their distance during their walks.

Agreed. Lot of elderly in my locality are not allowed to walk. And here Salman's father who gives gyaan to everyone is misusing by getting a pass.

The point is, there is one rule for the comman man and another for celebrities. Why did he get a pass from the government when so many othrr senior citizens didnt get one.
