Salman Khan on recent firecracker incident
Meanwhile, fans of Salman Khan caused chaos at a theatre in Malegaon when they lit firecrackers during a show of Tiger 3. Many other members of the audience were seen running for safety inside the theatre. Salman reacted to the incident and took to his X (formerly Twitter) account on Monday to say, “I’m hearing about fireworks inside theaters during Tiger3. This is dangerous. Let’s enjoy the film without putting ourselves and others at risk. Stay safe.”
An excerpt from the Hindustan Times review read, “While the story and broad plot of Tiger 3 is quite intricate and complex with a new twist and turn waiting to unfold every few minutes, what remains problematic is the inconsistent pace. Especially the first half is quite underwhelming with nothing that leaves you awestruck.”
