This incident became a delightful game for journalists, as they took turns in asking Jodhpur Central Jail Deputy Inspector General about Salman Khan’s time in jail.

The questions thrown by the media are such that the official answering them would have certainly been bewildered.

Some of these questions included what Bhai would be eating, where he would be sleeping, who he would be sharing a room with, and even the amount of salt and sugar that would go into his food.

To top it all off, the officer was asked how many mosquitoes are there in prison.

A similar instance happened on the day of Salman’s sentence hearing, with the media coming armed with questions to fire at officials as soon as the Bollywood superstar was of jail.

From his prison number to whether he’s exercising or not, they didn’t leave any question out. Watch the video to find out!
