Hema Sharma, known for her role in Salman Khan‘s production, ‘Dabangg 3‘, has now come forward with accusations that she was treated roughly by Khan’s security team in 2019 as she sought a meeting with the superstar.
Speaking about the incident, Sharma recalled her eager anticipation to work in ‘Dabangg 3’, a role she hoped would afford her the opportunity to meet Khan. “I gave my all to earn a role in ‘Dabangg 3’ as I was keen to meet Salman Khan. I initially had a scene with him and felt blessed for the opportunity” she said.
However, her scene was filmed without Salman Khan‘s presence, which deeply disappointed her. “After my shooting was over, I tried to meet Salman Khan” she added.
Sharma noted that she sought help from many to arrange a meeting with the superstar. “I reached out to about 50 people, hoping to meet Salman Khan and take a photo with him” she explained.
She mentioned how she enlisted the help of Pandit Janardhan, a guest on ‘Bigg Boss’, expressing her desire to meet Khan. However, her attempt ended in humiliation. “Pandit Janardhan assured me of the meeting, but I was roughly treated and dismissed as if I were an intruder just because I wanted a photograph with him” she claimed.
Sharma alleges that Salman’s security not only mistreated her but also threatened Janardhan. “I was publicly shamed before a crowd of a hundred, including acquaintances. The incident haunted me for days. Salman Khan was nearby during the incident but did not intervene” she said.
This isn’t an isolated incident involving Khan’s security acting in a high-handed manner. Recently, Bollywood actor Vicky Kaushal was also pushed by the ‘Wanted’ star’s security. The incident ended peacefully, however, with a mutual hug putting an end to any speculation.
