Star status doesn’t work everywhere, every time

Star status doesn’t work everywhere, every time

Salman Khan has left for Russia in a chartered flight to film Tiger 3, but it wasn’t all smooth sailing for him.

The actor, who is routinely accompanied by an entourage and leaves someone else to handle his documents while he saunters through, came on his own today, and a conscientious Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) officer promptly barred his way, asking to see his papers.

The actor, who was followed by a troupe of media persons, was not wearing a mask, and would have been easy to identify, but the officer, S. Mohanty, showed no hesitation in moving in front of Salman to block his progress when he realised that the star was not heeding his request to stop and show his papers.
“It was good to see the CISF personnel doing his duty,” says a paparazzo who was on the spot.

Interestingly, netizens seem to be enjoying the video of the incident which someone has posted. They have called the CISF officer a ‘star’ for stopping the Bollywood star in his tracks.

Other actors, including Sara Ali Khan, Deepika Padukone and Kareena Kapoor have been stopped too, for various reasons like checking tickets and identity cards.
