February 22, 2010 (Calcutta Tube): Bollywood actor Salman Khan who promised to grace as one of the jury members of Indian Super Queen, a beauty pageant for Hijra community fails to keep his promise.
Salman is renowned and loved for his humility. However, recently our Mr. Generosity didn’t seem to live up to his title and broke many hearts. Yes, Salman broke the promise given to Hijra guru and social activist Laxmi Narayan Tripathi of lending his gracious presence as one of the jury members of Indian Super Queen, a beauty pageant for Hijra community.
Laxmi Narayan Tripathi fumed and sarcastically remarked without taking any names, “I don’t understand why celebrities have to make false promises when they don’t mean a word. It’s disheartening to know- celebrities find ‘cycling race’ more important than something which is so socially relevant.” Laxmi surely pointed towards the superstar, for Salman was reportedly present at a cycling race earlier.
Laxmi came up with these words soon after ever-beautiful Zeenat Aman exclaimed that she couldn’t refuse Laxmi after the latter invited her to be one of the jury members in such a historical and socially relevant occasion.
Wonder, what has Salman to say on these remarks! But one thing is for sure Salman is now not in the good books of third gender.
