Bollywood superstar Salman Khan's turquoise bracelet, which shines bright on his right wrist, has been synonymous with him for the longest time. He even sports it in some of his films and it is a style statement that people have aped for long. Many fans have always wondered why the superstar wears the bracelet with the blue stone on it all the time. A video is doing the rounds on social media which reveals the real story behind the actor's favourite accessory.
In a throwback video that is doing the rounds on the internet, at an international event, Salman was asked about his signature bracelet by a media person. Responding to the question, Salman had revealed who had gifted it to him. He said, "My father has always worn this. And growing up, it used to look cool on his hand... how kids play with things, I used to play with his bracelet. And then when I started working, he got me the exact one. This stone is called firoza. Apparently, there are only two living stones, that's what they say. One is akik and one is firoza – this is the turquoise (firoza)."
Salman also stated that the firoza stone can sense negativity and it gets cracked every time it senses evil. “What happens with this is that if there’s any negativity coming onto you, first, this takes it, it gets veins in them and then it cracks. This is my seventh stone,” Salman further said.
Salman is currently hosting reality show Bigg Boss 15, which is in its final leg. Recently, during a gathering at his Panvel farmhouse, he was bitten by a non-venomous snake and had to be hospitalised late at night on the eve of his birthday. He is said to resume the shooting of highly anticipated film Tiger 3 in the coming time. He also teased working separately with Shah Rukh Khan at a media gathering on the occasion of his birthday but did not reveal the further details as to the nature of their collaboration. In Tiger 3, Shah Rukh will be seen in an extended cameo.
He will also begin work on upcoming movies Kabhi Eid Kabhi Diwali and No Entry sequel in the coming time.
