When Salman Khan sported glares at three recent events in the city — an episode of Bigg Boss 4, the launch of Being Human watches and the Being Human fashion show at HDIL India Couture Week - rumours of him having undergone eye surgery to hide eye bags started doing the rounds. However the new media-savvy Khan was quick to refute these rumours.

“I was okay to walk the ramp without the glares but everyone who saw my eye got scared. So I thought it best to wear the chashmas (glares),” Salman tweets. “It was just a small scratch near the eye. But because of all the commitments with Bigg Boss, launch of Being Human watches and the Being Human fashion show, had to attend all these functions and the blood clot spread to the whole eye.” He adds, “Of course it hurts and vision is slightly blurred, but will be fine in a few days.”

The actor has been asked to rest and was forced to miss the Dabangg DVD launch event held at Landmark on Tuesday. The film’s producer and Salman’s brother, Arbaaz, refuted the rumour again, saying, "The doctor has advised Salman to take rest for at least a week or the clot may spread further or get infected. As of now, he is following the doctor’s advice and as much as he would have liked to be here, he couldn’t make it."

But the crowd would have none of it and kept asking for Salman until actor Sonakshi Sinha took matters into her own hands and commanded Khamosh, in her father Shatrughan Sinha’s style. "Buy the DVD and you can watch Salman live for the entire two hours and three minutes of the film’s duration," she said.
