Filmmaker Ram Gopal Varma has shared a video from the inside of a theatre which screened Salman Khan’s latest offering Tiger 3. The video shows some people bursting crackers as Khan’s entry scene from the film is played on the big screen. Others can be seen running for cover and safety inside the theatre. A few other Khan fans also set off rockets inside theatre in other videos.
Sharing the video on his X, Varma wrote "And we think we are not MAD (flushed-face emoji).”
Many people on the Internet reacted negatively to the video slamming the fans for putting the lives of everyone at risk.
This is not the first time that such an incident has occurred for a Khan movie screening. The superstar has a loyal and crazy fan following that finds it hard to contain the excitement every time his movie releases. In 2021, during the release of Antim: The Final Truth, fans burst firecrackers inside a theatre.
Khan took cognisance of the matter back then and requested everyone on social media to not repeat the same, “Request all my fans not to take firecrackers inside the auditorium as it could prove to be a huge fire hazard thereby endangering your lives and also others.”
“My request to theatre owners not to allow firecrackers to be taken inside the cinema and security should stop them from doing so at entry point. Enjoy the film by all means but please please avoid, this is my request to all my fans.. thank you,” he added
Directed by Maneesh Sharma and produced by Aditya Chopra, the film released in theatres on November 12, on the auspicious day of Diwali.
