Actor Salman Khan meets Olympics medalist Mirabai Chanu; gets trolled for deer image on shawl

Mumbai: Actor Salman Khan uploaded a picture of his meeting with Olympic silver medallist Mirabai Chanu on his social media account on Wednesday.

The actor uploaded a picture with Mirabai, who won a silver medal for India in the 49 kg category in women’s weightlifting.

Salman captioned the image as: “Happy for u silver medalist @mirabai_chanu … lovely meeting with u…best wishes always!”

Mirabai reposted the tweet and wrote: “Thank you so much. @BeingSalmanKhan sir. I am a big fan of you and it was like a dream come true for me.”

While many appreciated Salman for honouring an Olympics hero, some could not help but notice an embroidery of what appears to be a deer on his shawl. Salman is of course infamous for the widely reported 1998 Blackbuck poaching case.

Many resorted to trolling the actor for the image.

Mirabai had also met cricketer Sachin Tendulkar and posted a picture with him on Wednesday.
