Saikhom Mirabai Chanu, the 27 years old Indian weightlifter, once again made the country proud by winning the Silver medal in the Tokyo Olympics in the 49 Kg category. Mirabai Chanu basically hails from Nongpok Kakching village in Imphal East district and she was given a grand welcome on her return in the country.
Recently, Mirabai Chanu met Bollywood superstar Salman Khan who posted a photo with the Indian weightlifter on his official Twitter account with the caption, “Happy for u silver medalist @mirabai_chanu.. lovely meeting with u… best wishes always!”
Here is the photo:

Mirabai Chanu also responded on Twitter by thanking the actor and stated that she is his big fan. Her tweet read, “Thank you so much @BeingSalmanKhan sir. I am a big fan of you and it was like a dream come true for me.”

However, what online users noticed the most in Salman Khan’s tweet was the image of blackbuck which was printed on the shawl worn by Salman Khan.
If you remember, Salman was arrested by cops in the year 1998 on the charges of shooting two blackbucks in a small village which was close to Jodhpur. It happened during the shooting of movie “Hum Saath – Saath Hain” and this incident still creates a lot of stir often on social media.
Soon the Internet was flooded with comments trolling Salman Khan and here are some selected tweets:
Is that Blackbuck on the shawl ???

Bhoi can help you achieve medals in shooting and car racing too😁
You @mirabai_chanu are a legend yourself, there's no need to denote him as sir. You have made our country proud in a way which he can never do……
This is really disappointing😑😒

However, some online users also pointed out that the animal printed on the shawl worn by Salman is not deer but Sangai which is found only in Manipur and it’s also the state animal.
