Throwback: When Salim Khan stood under a flagpole taking Salman Khan’s punishment in school

Salim Khan has penned some of the most engaging stories in Bollywood and he turns a year older today as he celebrates his 85th birthday. On his special day, here’s a throwback memory revealed by Salman on a TV show. Speaking about his childhood days, Salman Khan had revealed that once when his father Salim Khan was unable to pay his school fees, the ‘Radhe’ actor was asked to stand outside his class.

Salman Khan had revealed that his father was returning from work and saw him standing outside his class. Salim Khan had asked his son what had he done to deserve this and Salman Khan had revealed that he didn’t know and that the principal had asked him to stand under the flagpole. The ‘Tiger Zinda Hai’ actor had stated that he was in the fourth grade at that time and had been standing under the flagpole all day.

When Salim Khan approached the principal, he was told that since Salman’s school fee was not paid, he was given a punishment. Revealing Salim Khan’s stance then, Salman had stated that his father told the principal that Salman is not supposed to pay the fees and is supposed to be in class. Salim Khan had then paid the fees and stated that if someone needs to be punished then it has to be him and he then took Salman’s position under the flagpole.
