However, a person close to the Hum Aapke Hai Kaun actor told Zoom that if Salman Khan sued everyone who abused him, he would only be in and out of courtrooms.

The person said Salman Khan's father Salim Khan counsels his son to ignore insults. "Salim saab tells Salman they are just a way of grabbing attention," the person told Zoom. Besides, the actor has grown accustomed to his controversial public image, the person added.
