Salman Khan on Friday night took to Twitter and poured his heartfelt congratulatory wishes to Indian boxer Nikhat Zareen who created history by becoming only the fifth Indian woman pugilist to win a gold at the World Boxing Championship. Sharing a clip of Nikhat’s interview, Salman tweeted, “Congratzz on this gold Nikhat.” The Indian boxer who claimed to be Salman Khan’s huge fan was awestruck to have received a message from the superstar.
She responded to his tweet and said, “Being a die hard fan girl, It’s one of my favourite dream that has come true. I could never believe that @BeingSalmanKhan would tweet for me. I’m so much humbled. Thank u so much for making my win more special . I’ll savour this moment forever in my heart. #Fangirlmoment.”
Following Nikhat’s confrontational tweet, Salman also reacted to her clip where she refused to address him as ‘Bhai’. “Just don’t knock me out. Lots of love .. Keep doing what u doing n keep punching like my hero Sylvester Stallone….”, Salman tweeted.
While talking to NDTV, the 25-year-old was heard saying, “I have never called him bhai. Wo logon ka bhai hoga, meri toh jaan hai. I am his huge fan. It is my dream to meet him. Mera yhi sapna hai ki main olympic medal jeetu aur sabe phele Mumbai jaakr Salman Khan see milu”
