Controversies Alleged Incident of Humiliation by Salman Khan's Security
In June 2023, actress Hema Sharma gave an interview recounting an incident that occurred on the sets of the film "Dabangg 3," which was shot in 2019. Being a huge fan of actor Salman Khan, she was thrilled to learn that she might have the opportunity to share the screen with him. However, due to last-minute changes, the scene was ultimately shot with Salman Khan alone, leaving Hema disappointed. Seeking a chance to meet Salman Khan and take a picture with him, she approached several individuals for assistance. Eventually, Hema met Pandit Janardhan, a celebrity astrologer and face reader who had appeared on several seasons of the Indian reality show Bigg Boss. Together, they attempted to meet Salman Khan, but according to Hema, they were met with humiliation and mistreatment by the actor's security personnel. The security officers forcibly removed Hema and Pandit Janardhan and even threatened to ban Pandit Janardhan from future entry. The situation escalated to the point where Hema felt she was cast out like a dog in front of a crowd of approximately 100 people, including familiar faces. Although Salman Khan was not present during the incident, he was nearby. Hema believed that Salman Khan could have intervened and resolved the situation, but he chose not to get involved. This further fueled Hema's anger, leading her to vow never to meet Salman Khan again. The incident left Hema in great distress, causing her sleepless nights for nearly ten days as she grappled with the pain it caused her. [2]News18
