In response to the question on Shiv Sena’s protest against Ghazal maestro Ghulam Ali, Salman said that Art and Entertainment should not be mixed with Politics.
Salman’s Father, Salim Khan also spoke on the growing intolerance appealing the Modi government to address the issue raised by the artists by returning their awards.
Also, he asserted on the fact that India is the best place for the minority to live.
