Our filmy heroes have fan followings of varied moods and intensities. However, in a rare case, a woman’s love for Bollywood heartthrob Salman Khan reached such a breaking point that it led to separation from her husband, who growingly turned jealous at his wife’s unflinching obsession for the actor.
The woman’s recent departure from the house set the marriage of “many years” rocking, thanks to Salman.
“When the woman narrated her ordeal to us, we found it amusing and extraordinary,” said an 181 Abhayam official in Vadodara.
The mother of a child complained to the helpline officials that she once carelessly remarked about her fondness for Salman and his performances. But the man didn’t show any reaction then.
However, as time passed his displeasure grew intense and he suddenly started to harass and taunt her over not only Salman’s but Hrithik Roshan’s movies too.
“The man not only yelled but slapped his wife, and also imposed a complete ban on her from watching Salman and Hrithik’s movies. Initially, she thought that the husband was being irrational and impulsive, but the man’s rage kept increasing and he started picking up fights every time Salman’s movie was televised,” the official said.
“His jealousy was so intense that she was even barred from seeing Salman commercials. To ensure that his diktat was followed, he also would change the channel if there was any Salman movie running,” the official added.
This wasn’t the end of her ordeal. The woman wasn’t even allowed to go to the movies or even look at the billboards installed in public places. Thus tortured and frustrated, the woman finally decided to walk out of her home and seek help.
