Salman Khan bitten by a non-venomous snake at his Panvel farmhouse

Mumbai: Actor Salman Khan was bitten by a non-venomous snake at his farmhouse near Panvel in adjoining Raigad district.

The snake bit Salman's hand on Saturday night, the sources said. The actor was taken to a hospital at Kamothe in Navi Mumbai and discharged on Sunday morning.

Salman, who turns 56 on Monday, is now stable and back home in Mumbai, the sources said.

It is a tradition of sorts for the actor to celebrate his birthday at his lavish Panvel farmhouse. And in all probability Salman may host a close-knit party tonight.

Last year for most part of the lockdown, Salman Khan was stationed at his Panvel farmhouse, which is named after his sister Arpita Khan Sharma. The actor had shared several pictures and videos of him working in the farm and sowing seeds. Salman Khan had also shot for a song with Jacqueline Fernandez at his farmhouse last year.

Meanwhile, on the work front, the actor officially announced the sequel of 'Bajrangi Bhaijaan' at the RRR pre-release in Mumbai last week. The sequel is set to be written by S S Rajamouli’s father, K V Vijayendra Prasad, who also wrote the original film.

Salman attended the event to show support for Rajamouli’s upcoming magnum opus, which stars Jr NTR, Ram Charan, Alia Bhatt, and Ajay Devgn.

Salman Khan had already shot for a cameo for Shah Rukh Khan starrer 'Pathan'. In 2022, the actor is expected to join forces with Katrina Kaif to continue with the shoot of 'Tiger 3'. Salman Khan also has 'Kabhi Eid Kabhi Diwali' with Pooja Hegde and 'Kick 2' with Jacqueline Fernandez in the pipeline.

The actor will also be seen essaying a cameo in Aamir Khan's 'Laal Singh Chaddha'.

Salman Khan is also hosting the controversial reality show Bigg Boss 15 currently.
