Bollywood superstar Salman Khan was bitten by a snake at his farmhouse on the outskirts of Mumbai on the night of 25 December. He remained hospitalized for a few hours and was soon discharged. The actor, who celebrated his birthday on December 27, spoke to media persons outside his farmhouse and told them what happened. He assured everyone that he was healthy. This incident is now a thing of the past, but that didn’t stop filmmaker Ram Gopal Varma from taking a dig at Salman Khan by sharing a snake cartoon.
RGV shared the cartoon on Instagram in which the green colored snake is seen standing in the dock – a place in the court where the accused stands during the trial: The poster reads that it is the same snake that has bitten Salman Khan. “It wasn’t me, … it was my driver,” the cartoon shows the snake as saying.
The poster reminded netizens about the hit-and-run case in which Salman Khan’s Landcruiser was involved in an accident. One person was killed and some others were injured in the incident on the night of September 27, 2002. Salman Khan was accused of driving under the influence of alcohol and was sentenced to five years in prison by a trial court in May 2015. Later in December 2015, Salman clarified in the Bombay High Court that his driver Ashok Singh was at the wheel. The High Court acquitted him and reversed the order of the lower court.
Salman Khan was last seen in the film Antim: The Final Truth, which released last month. The film was directed by Mahesh Manjrekar and starred Salman’s brother-in-law Aayush Sharma.
Salman Khan’s upcoming films are Tiger 3 with Katrina Kaif and the second installment of Kick with Jacqueline Fernandez. He is currently hosting the reality show Bigg Boss 15 on television.
