Salman Khan, one of Bollywood’s most controversial stars, is hardly a celebrity asking about Will Smith slapping Chris Rock at the Oscars. Still, he was asked to comment on Slapgate while attending a press conference on the IIFA Awards for 2022. Will Smith stormed onto the Oscar stage and hit Chris Rock after the comedian joked about Will Jada’s wife’s shaved head – Jada has a medical condition called alopecia that causes miscarriage hair. Will Smith, who won Best Actor a few minutes later, has apologized after being widely criticized; However, Salman’s warmest view is on hosting – a replacement presentation because Chris Rock isn’t the Oscar host, he’s presenting an award.

At the IIFA press conference, Salman Khan said, “It is important for hosts to be sensitive. Humor should always be above the belt and never below the belt,” the Times Of India reported. It should be said here that Salman has been shredded by everyone from women’s bodies to public opinion after his own insensitive comments a few years ago about how training for his wrestling film Sultan made him “feel like a raped woman.”

Salman, who attended the IIFA press conference with Varun Dhawan, Ananya Panday and Maniesh Paul, elaborated, “I have hosted shows like Bigg Boss, Dus Ka Dum, and so many live shows on stage. Every time I’ve hosted Bigg Boss, and something went wrong with one of the participants that had made me angry or upset, I said it in the show, but I knew there was a limit.I didn’t cross the line.Whatever I had to say, I said on a given Saturday and then on My Sundays are all normal. “

Varun Dhawan, who was at the press conference as well, posted his response to Will Smith’s blow after it happened, writing in Instagram Stories: “Wow, didn’t expect that.”


Will Smith, who won his first Oscar for his performance in the film King Richard, apologized to Chris Rock on Instagram. “I want to openly apologize to you, Chris. I was out of line and I was wrong. I was ashamed and my actions did not show the man I wanted. There is no place for violence in the world of love and kindness,” he wrote as part of a post that longer. The Academy, which tweeted yesterday that it does not “acknowledge violence in any form,” is reviewing the controversy and will decide the consequences for this year’s Best Actor.

Salman Khan and Riteish Deshmukh will host the 22nd edition of the IIFA Awards. This year, the awards ceremony will take place on Yas Island, Abu Dhabi, on May 20 and 21.
