Here is a collection of Salman Khan’s statements during blackbuck poaching case:-
“Only the first forensic report of Dr Nepalia saying that the animal died of ‘natural causes’ was true and the rest of the evidence is false.”– The Times of India, 27 January, 2017.
“It’s not true. It’s all nautanki (mischief). Even now there are 5 out of job people who’ll show up on television to debate my case. Some for, some against. It’s ridiculous. None of them would have happened if I wasn’t a star. None of it.” – Huffington Post, 15 June, 2017
“Tiger Zinda Hai aur zinda rahega. Actually panditji ne bada accha suggestion diya. Tiger ke baad Panther, Panther ke baad lombdi, lombdi ke baad BB. The lesser I speak, the better for me. But I agree that wild animals are gentle; more gentle than human beings.” – Deccan Chronicle, 14 December, 2017
“I think it has come from that time… One day after pack up [of the film Hum Saath Saath Hain] we were all driving by…there were all of us (names Saif, Neelam, Tabu and Sonali). We saw a deer fawn and he was stuck in a bush. The whole herd was there. So, I stopped the car and he was petrified. I took him out from there and gave him some water. He later ate some biscuits and all and went away with the rest of the herd.” – NDTV, 6 September, 2009.
