Ever since the release of Race 3 trailer, the actors in the multi-starrer film have been witnessing a troll attack. Salman Khan was recently criticised for another reason, after he recently attended a dance reality show, Dance Deewane, with Anil Kapoor and Jacqueline Fernandez to promote Race 3.
Something happened at the show that did not go down well with fans and others. Jacqueline loved the performance of a young participant in the show and wanted to hug the boy. The boy, however, clearly said he did not want to hug her. “Mann nahi kar raha hug karne ka,” he said.
Salman Khan then decided to take things into his hand. “Hug karne ka mann nahi kar raha? Tu ruk, wohi ruk,” he said, and took Jacqueline to the stage and forced the kid to hug her. Salman asked him to give her one more hug but the boy looked uninterested. The young participant obliged by bumping into Jacqueline and she gently rubbed his tummy.
After Jacqueline posted this video on Instagram, fans called her and Salman “shameful” for forcing a child to do something without his consent.
Here’s her post.
One of the users commented: “How is this okay? It is important to teach children that their body is theirs and consent is important. The kid is totally uncomfortable. Expected better from you.”
Here are some other comments.
Race 3 is directed by Remo D’Souza and is scheduled to hit the theatres on June 15.
