Bollywood star Salman Khan stands to be banned from Goa after video emerged of him snatching the phone of a man who tried to take a selfie with him at an airport.

His fans have been divided at the video, which has gained over 30,000 views. While many called the star's behavior unacceptable, some have jumped to his defence, claiming that the man should have asked for permission first.
Goa NSUI President Ahraz Mulla said in a letter addressed to Chief minister Sawant: "I request your kind authority to look into this matter with utter seriousness and demand an apology from the actor on public platform since it was a disgrace to the fan publicly, failing which such violent actors with a bad track record should not be allowed to visit Goa in the future."
