Bollywood star Salman Khan says he has been keen on visiting Arunachal Pradesh for a long time. Salman was interacting with media as he attended a curtain-raiser event for the second edition of an MTB Arunachal Mountain Bicycle Race along with Union Minister of State for Home Kiren Rijiju here.

On his love for Arunachal Pradesh, Salman said: “I have never been there, but I dont 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 dont come there. I dont like Mumbai but then also, I come here to meet you.”

For the event, Salman was dressed in a traditional maroon Monpa jacket from the state.

The actor hopes he can make it to the cycling event.

“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.”
