Fake Salman Khan Arrested
While making the video of him dancing as Salman Khan at the famous Ghanta Ghar in Lucknow, a huge crowd gathered on the road. This caused public inconvenience as it is quite a crowded marketplace. After the police received this information, they visited the spot and had to arrest Azam. He was booked under section 151 of the Indian Penal Code which relates to the disturbance of public peace. This came as quite a shock for everyone but makes sense because a lot of people on the busy road were getting affected. In addition to this, he was also slapped with a hefty fine.

It needs to be understood that while these gestures might be a symbol of respect for their favourite Bollywood stars, but if they cause public disturbance, it simply can’t be tolerated. This is yet another example of people going to extreme lengths to portray a certain image on social media. What Salman Khan does is for the entertainment industry in isolated places or sets. It should not be replicated in real life and in real places at the cost of causing inconvenience to the general public.
