Salman Khan Branded As ‘Traitor’; Jacqueline Fernandez Defends
Bollywood superstar Salman Khan made a visit to Sri Lanka recently where the actor apparently campaigned for controversial Sri Lankan President Mahinda Rajapaksa.
While, Salman Khan was campaigning for the Sri Lankan President, certain political parties in Tamil Nadu got irked with the actor and reportedly called Salman as ‘traitor’ and ‘betrayer’.
Salman Khan’s visit to Sri Lanka and eventual campaigning for Rajapaksa is being supposed as the Sri Lankan President’s attempt to get more public support before the elections which are schedule to happen on January 8.
Salman Khan was accompanied by actress Jacqueline Fernandez there and pictures of the duo along with Rajapaksa created much waves in the social media. Now as reported, leaders of DMK and MDMK are very upset with Salman Khan for the act and even branded the actor as a ‘traitor’.
However, Jacqueline Fernandez came in defence of Salman stating that the main purpose of the visit is some social service under Salman’s initiative of Being Human. “Salman donated 200 lenses to facilitate cataract operations in certain under-privileged areas.He also donated money. That was the main purpose of this visit. It bothers me that people can’t see the good in any initiative. All they want to do is identify an ulterior agenda behind every good cause,” said Jacqueline.
Nevertheless, Jacqueline further added, “Salman is an individual in his own right who knows both Rajapaksa and his son Namal well. If he wants to drum up support for Rajapaksa that’s his choice and nobody can question it.”
