They say that old habits die hard. But not for Salman Khan. Sources say that the actor has become a teetotaller and has also given up puffing on cigarettes. We hear that the primary reason behind the same could be the actor’s recent health scare.
A friend of Salman says, “Salman bhai is in his prime. He is enjoying success like never before and has become extremely disciplined. After his health scare around a year back due to trigeminal neuralgia (nerve pain), Salman does not want to hamper the recovery process any more. That’s why he decided that he would quit smoking and drinking.”
Apparently, it has been nearly five months now that Sallu has not had a smoke or a drink. Also, in spite of him partying like always before, word is that he has made sure he stays away from any such bad habits.
Our source adds, “Salman is also making sure that he finishes his films as per schedule and is always present on the sets on time. He is also taking keen interest in every aspect of the film making including the promotions which he never did earlier.”
The source further adds, “Salman’s illness scared everyone around him and his family. He now does not want to do anything that will upset his family members and quitting drinking and smoking is the first step towards that.”
Beat it like Salman!
Interestingly Salman, who had been asked by his doctors not to smoke every since his last health scare, has apparently found an innovative way to get rid of the habit. Word is that Sallu holds a cigarette in his hand but puffs on it without actually lighting it. After he throws it away, the staff goes and retrieves it and the cigarette is then re-used to do the same.
