Sana Khan Salman Khan Awkward Hug Controversy

Ex Bigg Boss Contestant Sana Khan has always been in news and has grabbed headlines for a lot of reasons. Though the actress has now left the showbiz post her marriage one of her controversies surrounding Bigg Boss back in 2017 is still remembered. During an award show, Sana Khan bumped into Bigg Boss host Salman Khan on the red carpet. The two greeted each other, but their ‘awkward’ hug grabbed all the attention. Netizens noticed Salman hugging her with a closed-fist and uncomfortable smile. Their awkward hug went viral for days and the actress got trolled brutally.

Sana lost her calm for all the negative reactions and trolling. She went on record and said that she knows Salman personally and that he was not at all awkward. She even said that Salman’s close fist was just his style of hugging someone and said that she is not a psychopath to hug someone if the person doesn’t want to talk to her.

Speaking to Bombay Times in 2017 and talking about their ‘awkward hug’, Sana had said, “Who the hell am I to make him feel uncomfortable? It’s stupid to put somebody down by saying such a nasty thing and showing me in a wrong light. It’s not as if I went to hug him and he didn’t recognise me.”

The actress had further added, “Couldn’t it be somebody’s style? Maybe he hugs like that. I don’t know. I think the best person to ask this would be Salman. Also he has been in the film industry for over 25 years, so don’t think backless even matters to him, he has seen more than that. Let’s not talk like a five-year-old and make all this sound so big.” Sana had also shared that the matter was blown out of proportion.

“I’m not a psychopath to hug somebody if the person doesn’t want to talk to me. I’m not someone who makes people stand and keep talking and falling on their lap. I am on good terms with Salman; we share a rapport, I talk to him on and off, we’ve met so many times, I’ve been to his house, and we have worked together on the sets also. So there’s nothing to feel awkward about”, she was quoted saying in her interview with
