For years now, Eid is associated with the release of a Salman Khan film. But with theatres shut, lockdown in most parts of the nation and the actor stranded at his farmhouse in Maharashtra, Khan announced two new releases: a grooming brand and a song.
Khan released a song titled ‘Bhai Bhai’ that aims to promote communal harmony and a hand sanitiser from his grooming band called FRSH. And like his films, the releases have inspired plenty of reactions on social media, but maybe not the ones the actor might have wanted.
Many joked that the actor has truly become ‘atmanirbhar (self-sufficient)’ given he penned the song and sang it. Some also said that instead of a hand sanitiser the grooming brand should have released a ear cleanser to go with the song.
Here are some of the reactions:
Salman Khan is smartly cutting cost of his songs – He sings himself, shoots at his own farmhouse and saves on lyricist’s money by using slogans from 15th August’s school rallies pic.twitter.com/6bFVyKcotA

But despite the scathing reviews, the actor’s song had over 6 million views on YouTube in less than 24 hours, and there are claims that there are already bulk orders for the sanitiser.
