New Delhi, Oct 12 (IANS) Salman Khan is seen with glares these days, but it is not his new style statement. He is wearing them to cover up his bruised eye.
At the three recent events in Mumbai - the eviction episode of 'Bigg Boss 4', launch of Being Human watches and the Being Human fashion show at the HDIL-India Couture Week - the actor sported glares.
'I was okay to walk the ramp without the glares but everyone who saw my eye got scared. So I thought it best to wear the 'chashmas',' Salman posted on his Twitter page.
He explained the reason behind the bruised eye.
'It was just a small scratch near the eye but because of all the commitments with 'Bigg Boss', launch of Being Human watches ...the Being Human fashion show, had to attend all these functions and so because of the energy the blood clot spread in the whole eye.'
'Of course it hurts and vision is slightly blurred, but will be fine in a few days,' he added.
Salman walked the couture week ramp with Bollywood beauties like Priety Zinta, Katrina Kaif, Rani Mukerji, Bipasha Basu, Karishma Kapoor, Sushmita Sen, Priyanka Chopra, Kareena Kapoor. He says he loved scaring them all with his bruised eye.
'I had a lot of fun scaring all my beautiful leading ladies backstage.'

Time to save Sameer, says Neelam
Former actress-turned-jewellery designer Neelam Kothari is doing her bit to save beau Sameer Soni from being evicted out of reality show 'Bigg Boss 4'.
Sameer has been nominated for eviction by the housemates this week.
'Ok guys...Time to save Sameer in the 'Bigg Boss' house! Sms SAM to 56882. He tried to make peace in the house but it backfired, not fair! Vote vote!' Neelam posted on micro-blogging site Twitter.
Sameer has been nominated for being diplomatic in his approach. So far he has remained calm and composed, and tried to bring about peace amongst everyone. But his behaviour hasn't gone down well with some among the remaining 11 contestants on the show.
He has been nominated along with former dacoit Seema Parihar and ex MTV 'Splitsvilla' contestant Sakshi Pradhan. The result of the elimination will be on air Friday on Colors.
