Bollywood actor Salman Khan was asked a question on the farmers protests in Delhi to which he responded by saying, “the right thing should be done.” Salman Khan appeared a bit afraid to speak his thoughts on fears of a backlash and resorted to just a quick sentence on the question.

Many on Twitter responded to Salman Khan by saying:
I have the same opinion..otherwise he could end up in jail. Better he will stay away from this but sure he is with # supportfarmers— Jasneet (@Ruby7423) February 5, 2021
A deliberately cryptic response that could be taken to mean different things, prevents a strong backlash from either side and allows him to continue sitting on the fence. #FarmersProtest #shameonBollywoodcelebrities— HG (@Harps1) February 4, 2021
Diplomatic answer he gave. Cannot tell who is he supporting from what he said. As we say it in punjabi, Gol Mol gal kar gya.— Sukh_72 (@72Sukh) February 4, 2021
Many are saying Salman Khan gave a diplomatic answer and it’s difficult to interpret what he wants to say.
He didn’t state what the correct thing is, seems to be sitting on the fence! I hope he’s not another chamcha or Modi— Harpreet Kaur Minhas (@HarpreetKMinhas) February 4, 2021
