The Secret Behind Salman Khan’s Eyes
And if Salman is to be believed then it’s the scratch under his eye and not any surgery that is forcing him to sport glares.
Posting a picture of his bruised eye on his Twitter homepage, Salman tweeted, “I was okay to walk the ramp without the glares but everyone who saw my eye got scared. So I thought it best to wear the `chashmas`.”
As for the reason behind his bruised eye, Salman wrote, “It was just a small scratch near the eye but because of all the commitments with `Bigg Boss`, launch of Being Human watches …the Being Human fashion show, had to attend all these functions and so because of the energy the blood clot spread in the whole eye.”
“Of course it hurts and vision is slightly blurred, but will be fine in a few days,” he added.
The actor recently walked the ramp with scintillating Bollywood ladies like Priety Zinta, Katrina Kaif, Rani Mukerji, Bipasha Basu, Karishma Kapoor, Sushmita Sen, Priyanka Chopra and Kareena Kapoor. And it seems, the actor had a ball scaring them all with his bruised eye.
