Salman Khan keen to visit Arunachal Pradesh; fascinated by the pollution-free environment.

Salman Khan has expressed his desire to visit the land of the rising sun, Arunachal Pradesh. He attended the second edition of an MTB Arunachal Mountain Bicycle Race in Mumbai.  Union Minister of State for Home Kiren Rijiju was also present. 

This is a 650 km race from Mechuka Valley, Arunachal Pradesh to the state’s capital Itanagar. It will start on Nov 14 and last seven days.

He expressed his love for this northeastern state of India,

Salman said: “I have never been there, but I don’t know why I like Arunachal Pradesh so much that I just wanted to go there for longest time to see the place and to be there. I did a film called Tubelight with child actor Matin Rey Tangu who hails from Arunachal Pradesh. So, whenever he used to meet me, he used to tell me to visit Itanagar which is in Arunachal Pradesh.
“He used to keep on talking about rivers, mountains and the pollution-free environment of Itanagar and Pasighat. So, I got very fascinated with that. He always tells me that ‘Every time you promise me, but you don’t come there. I don’t like Mumbai but then also, I come here to meet you’.”
This is what the actor said on his visiting plans:
“I tried to go there many times, but this time I hope I can make to this event. That time (when the event takes place), I am shooting for ‘Bharat’ in Delhi. So, if I get one day off from the shoot, the first thing I want to do is to be a part of this event.”

Here is the look of the traditional dress of the Monpa tribe of Arunachal on the actor.

The actor supports cycling and marks this as a healthy exercise. He says, 

“I personally support cycling as it is good for health and you don’t get injured severely (in case of accident). Compared to motorcycle, you will not get hurt as badly if you are riding a bicycle.” 

The minister praised the actor, and says:

“Salman Khan is the most philanthropic person in Bollywood I have come across. ..He does not think of himself. He lives for people”
