MUMBAI: Bollywood actor Salman Khan lashed out at veteran actor Rishi Kapoor without taking his name and said that it’s not necessary to respect a man who is not respecting your family.
In a statement, Salman said ‘‘I don’t have enemies. It’s just that I don’t like a few people. It’s very obvious because I make no bones about it. Just because someone is born a few years before me, it’s no reason for me to respect him. If that person keeps on disrespecting me or any member of my family, I refuse to give him due regard. There are one or two families from whom I have not got that respect and love. That’s where it ends. Some people from the industry will never be welcomed in my home.’’
‘‘I definitely believe that whether someone is a senior or a junior, you shouldn’t be disrespectful to them. However, if that person is taking you for an idiot and is being disrespectful, then that’s not done,’’ said Salman.
It is believed that the entire situation started when Rishi Kapoor walked up to Sohail Khan’s wife Seema Khan at Sonam and Anand’s reception and had a heated argument with her over Salman’s attitude.
On the work front, Salman Khan is busy in promotion of Race-3 release.
