Did Salman mock at Deepika, Priyanka at IIFA 2016 press con?

New Delhi: Though he has decided to keep things “shorter” post ‘raped woman’ remark drama, where there’s Salman Khan, there has to be some kind of sarcasm.

International Indian Film Academy Awards (IIFA) 2016 press conference at Madrid yesterday was no different.

During the conference, which also saw the trailer launch of Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra’s ‘Mirzya,’ the 50-year-old actor mocked at Priyanka Chopra and Deepika Padukone and termed them to be “Hollywood returned.”

Basically, the ‘Dabangg’ actor, who missed Mirzya’s trailer, asked for a replay and left the podium to sit. When he saw the other celebs, including Shahid Kapoor, Farhad Akhtar, Deepika Padukone, Hrithik Roshan, Priyanka Chopra, Sonakshi Sinha, Tiger Shroff, still on the stage, he asked them to come and sit too.

Everyone but the ‘Bajirao Mastani’ actresses left the podium like disciplined adults. The two were seen busy conversing right at the stage which made the ‘Sultan’ actor mock them big time.

He humorously said, “These two ladies have now gone abroad, doing Hollywood movies. They don’t have anything to do with Indian cinema now.”

For the uninitiated, Salman, at the same conference stated “Knowing me, the shorter I keep it, the better!” when was asked to say something. (ANI)
