While promoting Veer during Sony's CID Gallantry Awards, Salman Khan gave a side-splitting explanation on why it was so easy for the British Empire to capture India…
Salman told to a very attentive audience, "We have an obsession with fair skin. We have it today, we had it yesterday. The Maharajas had it."
Then Salman threw the nuclear bomb as he went on to say, "That's why India came under the British so easily. All the Maharajas got blinded by the white-skin of the British ladies. Woh log unke peeche peeche bhaagte rahe aur doosri taraf India ko un goron no apne kabze mein kar liye (Our Maharajas kept running behind the white ladies and from the other side the white men conquesred India)"
So now we have solved an age-old riddle that even the great historians couldn't solve, haven't we?
