Salman Khan had recently gone to Saudi Arabia to attend a boxing match. Several photos from the match went viral in no time as Salman was seen sitting next to Cristiano Ronaldo and his girlfriend Georgina Rodriguez. A video went viral on Monday where Footballer Cristiano Ronaldo was seen walking past by Bollywood superstar Salman Khan, based on which it was said that Ronaldo ignored Salman Khan. Social media users even started a fan war on X (formerly known as Twitter), thinking that the footballer did not respect the superstars of their country.
Since yesterday, social media has been filled with these pictures and videos and Salman Khan has even been trolled. It was said that he does not have global appeal and that’s why Ronaldo didn’t even recognize him. Some even pointed out that despite sitting together they did not talk. But now a video from the same event has burst all the bubbles. In the new video, both the celebrities are seen engrossed in a conversation. In the video, Salman is saying something, on which Ronaldo is seen laughing. His partner Georgina is also sitting next to them.
This has cleared up the confusion that no one ignored anyone in that event. Ronaldo is a legend in his field and Salman of his field. Even if Ronaldo had not met Salman, Salman’s stature would never become a little smaller. But this photo has given great peace to Salman’s fans. Because since yesterday they were watching Salman being trolled.
