While talking about the viral photo of Salman Khan in the hospital, filmmaker Sanjay Gupta took it to his Twitter handle and tweeted, “Pic of Salman in the hospital going viral… Why the f*ck do people do that??? Is a celebrity not entitled to any dignified privacy?”

Salman was at his farmland in Panvel, Navi Mumbai, when a non-venomous snake bit him, according to reports. The Antim actor was subsequently rushed to a local hospital, where he received the necessary medical treatment to ensure his safety. Around 9:00 a.m., the actor was released from the hospital.
The actor recently discussed his snake bite. Salman revealed the details during a recent interview with ANI, “A snake had entered my farmhouse, I took it outside using a stick. Gradually it reached onto my hand. I then grabbed it to release, which is when it bit me thrice. It was a kind of poisonous snake. I was hospitalized for 6 hours…I am fine now.”
