Bollywood superstar Salman Khan has criticised people who are using his name to spread anti-religious message, saying he has sought police action against them.

A “mischievous and false” message has been circulating on popular social networking platform WhatsApp. The 49-year-old actor, who is awaiting the release of his next film Bajrangi Bhaijaan , has asked his fans not to pay heed to such rumours.

The Kick star further added:

Directed by Kabir Khan, Bajrangi Bhaijaan also stars Kareena Kapoor and Nawazuddin Siddiqui. The film will release on July 17.
