MUMBAI: Salim Khan, the renowned screenwriter and father of Salman Khan may have protected and supported his son whenever he was involved in controversy. He was undoubtedly criticized for it, but he made sure the actor accepted responsibility and apologized. Salim recounted how he asked Salman to seek an apology after he and director Subhas Ghai got into a fight at a party and the former hit the Taal director.

“After the fight, the next morning when I was having my tea, he came to me and told me about the incident. I asked him if he realized it was his mistake, and he admitted that he was at fault and blamed alcohol for the fight. I advised him to pick up the call and apologize to Subhash, and he did it,” the veteran screenwriter told the popular news portal in an old interview.

According to a report in the popular news portal, published in 2002, the Dabangg actor confessed to slapping Ghai. “I have hurt myself all over. I cannot hurt anyone else. I have only hit Subhash Ghai. Yet, I apologised to him the next day. That person hit me with a spoon, almost broke a plate on my face, urinated on my shoes, and grabbed me by the neck. I couldn’t control myself. And look what happened. The next day, I had to go and apologise.” Ghai, who later collaborated with Salman on Yuvraaj, shared, “Salman came and stood in front of me like a guilty child. I smiled and asked him, ‘What happened to you last night?’ and he said, ‘I have come here because my father told me to do so.’ I said, ‘So you are not sorry?’ and he replied, ‘Of course I am.’ That’s how we broke the ice.”

Salman has been controversy’s favourite child, and unless you have been living under a rock, you must have heard about the ugly spat between Salman and Vivek Oberoi, which made headlines. In 2003, Vivek, who was said to have been dating Salman’s ex-girlfriend, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, held a press conference against Salman, accusing him of threatening him.

Talking about the feud, Salim along with Javed Akhtar has written films like Zanjeer, Sholay, Naam, Don, etc., jokingly added, “There is no logical or rational solution to emotional problems, and both Salman and Vivek have been emotional. Years later, they will realise that they fought over a stupid thing. Koi aur le gaya, koi aur chala and yeh wahi ke wahi hain (Someone took her away. She went with someone else and these two have remained where they were).”

Before 2009, Salman was going through a difficult time when his films weren't doing well at the box office and he was also embroiled in several legal issues. After his car struck a bakery in Mumbai, where a person was sleeping on the pavement outside, one person died and three others were injured, he was taken into custody on charges of irresponsible and careless driving. He was found not guilty in the hit-and-run case in 2015.

In Jodhpur in 1998, Salman Khan was accused of poaching three Chinkaras and a Black Buck and Chinkaras while filming Hum Saath Saath Hain. He was accused of using arms illegally as well. Salman's astrologer father said in the interview that he expected positive changes in Salman's life after 2009.

“Salman will soon be out of the problems he is surrounded by. He is destined to. From 2009 onwards, times will change for the better for him. If Salman has to get married, it will happen in a year or two; otherwise, chances are bleak,” he told host Pooja Bedi, adding, “While I love all my children equally the attention, right now, is on Salman because he is going through a difficult time in his life.”
