‘Which farmer does a photoshoot’

Bollywood actor Salman Khan’s latest Instagram post, which was dedicated to all the farmers, has received major backlash online.

No doubt the actor’s well-intention tribute was mocked mercilessly—because the actor depicted himself as a son of the soil.

Several users pointed out that Salman’s entire body was seen covered in mud—which meant it was applied by someone else.

In the picture, Salman, covered with mud, can be seen sitting in a field. “Respect to all the farmers,” read the caption on his post. ”

See carefully, his hand is not muddy but his arms are. This means someone else has applied mud on him,” wrote an Instagram user. “Kaunsa farmer khet pe baith ke aise photo shoot karta hai(which farmer sits in a field and poses like this for a photo shoot)?” added another.

Another Instagram user commented: “Maine bahut farmer dekhe hain aaj tak, kisi ke muh pe keechad nahi laga hota) I have seen many farmers, none of them apply mud on their face).” Many users asked the actor if it was necessary to apply mud on his face. “Lag raha hai ki mitti pota hai bas photo ke liye (seems like the mud has been applied just for the sake of getting a picture clicked),” read another comment on Salman Khan’s post.

A day ago, Salman, who is currently spending time at his farm in Lonavla, had posted a picture to hail the efforts of farmers.

“Daane daane pe likha hota hai khane wale Ka naam… jai jawan ! jai kissan,” he wrote alongside an image in which Salman is seen surrounded by greenery.

On the film front, Salman will next be seen in “Radhe”, which marks his return with director Prabhudheva after the 2009 film “Wanted” and last year’s “Dabangg 3″.

During the lockdown, Salman has been busy showcasing his singing skills. He released three singles—”Pyaar karona”, “Tere bina”, and “Bhai bhai”.
