Salman Khan might not get off Twitter as has been widely reported. Sources close to the star say that, “Salman has just stopped tweeting for the time being.”
“Bhai (as he’s called fondly by family and close friends) does not want to tweet now, and has made no mention of deleting his account. He’s extremely upset with what has happened recently. He’s not able to enjoy the success of his film as the controversy (on his alleged comments regarding the 26/11 attacks on a Pakistani channel) has ruined it for him!” says a family member of the star.
Ever since, Salman has stopped tweeting, his mail-box and account is filled with messages from his fans urging him not to stop tweeting. His close aides say that Salman might not go off but become irregular now with his tweets.
“We are not in a favour of him deleting his account because that would mean rolling down a red carpet for the impostors. We have told Bhai that Twitter is a great tool to interact with his fans directly, and he should not think of deleting his account. He can think of not tweeting for the time being, but we have told him not to delete his account at any cost,” adds the family member.
Salman’s mother, Salma, admitted that Salman was in a foul mood for the past three days that he didn’t want talk to anybody.
“Abhi who theek hai (He’s alright now). He was not in the best of moods. I’ve not discussed the issue with him, I just let it be. He’s just stepped out of the home now after all these days,” said Salma. “But we’ve received so many calls. Everybody’s concerned about him. I just want this to pass.”
