When fans burst crackers at Antim screening
This is not the first time that an incident like this has occurred inside theatres playing a Salman Khan movie. In 2021, during the release of Antim: The Final Truth, fans burst firecrackers inside a hall and it caught Salman’s attention. Taking to social media, Salman had at the time condemned the incident and urged fans not to repeat it.
He had said, “Request all my fans not to take firecrackers inside the auditorium as it could prove to be a huge fire hazard thereby endangering your lives and also others. My request to theatre owners not to allow fire crackers to be taken inside the cinema and security should stop them from doing so at entry point. Enjoy the film by all means but please please avoid this is my request to all my fans.. thank you.”
