If I Hit Her She Wouldn’t Survive: Salman Claims in This Old Clip

The #MeToo Movement has finally arrived in India and Bollywood is facing the heat as well. From Tanushree Dutta to Kangana Ranaut, a number of celebrities have spoken out accusing some big names in the industry. In the midst of the this wave, an old clip of Salman Khan talking about hitting his ex-girlfriend Aishwarya Rai has re-surfaced.

In the video, a journalist asks him if he ever hit a woman, referring to a public allegation Aishwarya had made against him. Salman replies, "Yeah, now that woman has said that I have. I mean there was a journalist Prabhu Chawla who asked me this a long time ago, so I just banged the table and he got startled, the table really broke."

Watch the video below.

I mean, if I hit somebody, it’s obviously a fight, I am going to be angry. I am going to whack and give it my best shot. I don’t think she would’ve survived it.

Earlier, Aishwarya Rai had spoken to Times of India about Salman’s misbehaviour.

After we broke up, he (Salman) would call me and talk rubbish. There were times when Salman got physical with me, luckily without leaving any marks. And, I would go to work as if nothing had happened.
