SALMAN'S STAY AT PANVEL FARMHOUSE
In March, after Indian PM Narendra Modi announced a nationwide lockdown to curb the spread of the novel coronavirus, Salman Khan quarantined himself with his family in his farmhouse in Panvel. The actor not only chilled with his family members and friends at the farmhouse, but also indulged in farming. He also released many songs and coronavirus awareness videos from the farmhouse.
Jacqueline Fernandez also spent some days at Salman's farmhouse. The two actors also appeared in a music video, which was shot and recorded completely inside the farmhouse itself.
Salman Khan has recently wrapped Prabhudheva's Radhe: Your Most Wanted Bhai. The film also stars Randeep Hooda and Disha Patani in pivotal roles. It was scheduled to release in May on the occasion of Eid. However, as film production was halted because of the coronavirus pandemic, the film's release was postponed.
Currently, Salman Khan is hosting Bigg Boss 14. And going by the news reports, he is charging a whopping amount for his appearance on the reality show. The actor appears on the weekend special episodes. Now, since he has isolated himself, it is to be seen how the Weekend Ka Vaar episodes will be shot in the coming weeks.
