Salman Khan arrived at Dibrugarh airport by a chartered flight on Thursday. He is in the north-eastern state for inaugurating the second edition of the MTB Arunachal Mountain bicycle race.
The Chief Minister shared a few photographs on Twitter. He described the ride as an ‘exhilarating experience’ at Mechuka on November 22, thus confirming his presence. Salman also addressed the people present at the festival along with the two political leaders.
Salman Khan was to return to Mumbai the same day.
Salman’s association with the North-East began after he met the little Arunachalee guy Matin Rey Tengu in his film ‘Tubelight’.
Meanwhile, his shooting in Ludhiana for the film ‘Bharat’has hit a roadblock. Farmers in Jodha village near Ludhiana were ‘upset’ with the cast and crew for recreating the Wagah Border in their fields.
The makers had reportedly acquired 19 acres of the farms at Rs 80,000 per acre for putting up the sets.
