Salman’s brother Arbaaz Khan also reacted to the incident. He took to his Instagram account and shared a long message.

He wrote: “The recent incident of two unidentified persons firing at a motorcycle at the Galaxy Apartment, the residence of the Salim Khan family, is very disturbing and unnerving. Our family is surprised by this shocking incident that has occurred. Unfortunately, some people have claimed to be close to our family and pretended to be the spokesperson, have made loose statements to the media saying that it is all a publicity stunt and that the family remains unaffected, which is not true and that these views should not be taken seriously,” the statement said.

He also said that the family is fully cooperating with the Mumbai Police in investigating the case.

“No member of the Salim Khan family has made any statement regarding this incident to the media. At this time, the family is assisting and cooperating with police in the investigation of this untoward incident. We have confidence in the Mumbai Police and we are confident that they will do everything in their power to protect and keep our family safe. Thank you everyone for your love and support,” Arbaaz wrote.

After news of the shooting broke, Maharashtra Chief Minister Eknath Shinde spoke to Salman over the phone about the incident. Shinde also spoke to the Mumbai Police Commissioner and suggested beefing up Salman Khan’s security.
