Who should pay for Vijay Mallya’s mistakes?

Guilty or not guilty? An argument in between Salman’s fan and media fed Cynics

Few months back, when I told one of my fellow mango man “Salman Bhai is a victim of trial by media”. He laughed his ass off. He was sure Bhai ran his car over few pedestrians sleeping on pavement in inebriated state. I told him “Dude. Bhai does not play negative character. He is the only one who has learned to “Being Human” even after so many years in industry. All this drama is one big nautanki to malign image of our bajrangi...
