At the special screening of Riteish Deshmukh’s latest Marathi offering Yellow, Salman was the epitome of social consciousness, when he spoke at length about Shakila Zareen. He gave an impassioned talk about the need for safety for women.
“Yes, the girl, Shakila, had come to meet me. Her husband had shot her in the face, and left her badly disfigured. It was a very sad case. But I was glad to see, the lady is a fighter. She has an amazing energy, and I’m sure her face will become alright, Inshallah. I think there are about 9-10 surgeries pending for her face, and I really hope and pray everything goes off well. I hope she can lead a normal life soon.” stated Salman Khan.
Shakila Zareen‘s face was left badly-disfigured after her husband shot her with a shotgun, which blew out her nose, an eye and impaired hearing in the left ear. It was her dream to meet with the Bollywood superstar Salman Khan someday.
And knowing Salman Khan’s big heart, he ensured he made her dream a reality. He not only met with the lady, but reportedly gave her strength and courage to face her ordeal, with the kind words he shared with her. Now that’s called being a people’s superstar!
More power to Salman Khan!
