Bollywood superstar Salman Khan is known for launching the careers of many stars like Sooraj Pancholi, Katrina Kaif and Asin. However, an aspiring actor has come forward and said that Salman has actually destroyed his career. He is Akashdeep Saigal, famous for his role as Tulsi’s no-good son, Ansh, from Kyuki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi.
Akashdeep told TOI in an interview that Salman had hired an entire PR team dedicated towards making sure his career never takes off. He had a major fight with Salman when he appeared as a contestant on the fifth season of Bigg Boss. Akashdeep had accused Salman then of hitting him and causing emotional hurt.
However, five years since the spat, Akashdeep is returning to the movies with KV Anand’s untitled Tamil film and when asked if things are better with Salman, he said that he has indeed moved on but cannot say the same about the Bajrangi Bhaijaan actor. “Totally! But I don’t know if he has. I never hired any PR to destroy a career. I don’t have a petty mind. I don’t take 10 people along with me to make myself seem more powerful,” he told the daily.
