'Nahi hu fan': When Salman Khan confessed not being 'football' fanatic in a viral video
In a throwback video, Salman Khan makes it apparently clear that he has no interest in football as he does not have the type of time and patience to sit and watch a football match for an hour. This news scoop comes out amid recent viral photos and videos on X of the global icon with football legend Cristiano Ronaldo.
Salman Khan and Cristiano Ronaldo took the internet by storm after photos and videos of them attending a boxing match in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, surfaced on social media. In one of the videos, which went viral on the internet, Salman was standing in the background as CR7 hugged others, which led to netizens speculating if the star footballer ignored the Bollywood superstar.
Amid this ongoing debate, a throwback video of Salman discussing football has resurfaced on the internet. In the video, Salman makes it crystal clear that he has no interest in football as he does not have any time and patience to sit and watch a football match.
Salman Khan, during a media promotional event for Kick in 2014, said, "Nahi hu fan main football ka (I am not a fan of football). I watch it sometimes, but I do not follow it." Pointing out towards Randeep Hooda, Salman said, "He is a football fan. I watched two matches with him. I understand it a little bit. But, I do not have the patience."
