Bhai won’t walk long
Salman Khan was in a foul mood when he stepped out of the Mumbai airport after returning from his show in Dubai. So much so that he gave the waiting paparazzi an angry glare before getting into his car and zooming off. Apparently, the actor usually exits from Gate 8, so he doesn’t have to walk much to reach his waiting car. But this time, he was made to exit from another gate and it was a long walk to his car. He was reportedly tired from the flight and the airport officials were unable to help him too. Maybe he should remember his song, Just chill, no?
