A video of fans bursting firecrackers inside a theatre during the screening of Bollywood superstar Salman Khan's latest film, Antim: The Final Truth, has gone viral on social media. The video has spawned a huge reaction from many, including the Dabangg actor who took to Instagram on Saturday night to appeal to fans to not adhere to such practices. In the video, it looks like fans light crackers during Salman's appearance on the screen, leading to sparks flying across the cinema hall. We see fans rising from their seats in both the lower deck of the theatre and the balcony in an effort to avoid getting hit by the sparks from the fireworks and not sustain any injuries. 

Sharing the video, Salman wrote, "Request all my fans not to take firecrackers inside the auditorium as it could prove to be a huge fire hazard thereby endangering your lives and also others. My request to theatre owners not to allow firecrackers to be taken inside the cinema and security should stop them from doing so at entry point. Enjoy the film by all means but please please avoid this. This is my request to all my fans... Thank you." Below is Salman Khan's Insta post:

Antim: The Final Truth is Salman Khan's first film in theatres since Dabangg 3 in late 2019 and has been directed by Mahesh Manjrekar. The high-octane action film also stars Salman's brother-in-law Aayush Sharma (married to Arpita Khan) as the antagonist and released on the big screens on November 26. Antim, which has opened to mixed reviews, has Salman playing the role of a Sikh cop, while Aayush is seen as a gangster. The film incidentally also marks Aayush's first film in theatres since his Loveyatri in 2018.
