'Bigg Boss 8': Why Makers want to Cast Salman Khan as the Host?Faridoon Shahryar/ Twitter

Looks like some residents of Hyderabad are not happy with the big starry function in the city as superstar Salman Khan's sister Arpita Khan is getting married at the Falaknuma Palace on Tuesday, 18 November.

Soon after the entire Khan family arrived in Hyderabad on Monday, amidst tight security, some angry mobs started shouting slogans against Salman: "go back to Mumbai....we want justice". 

The protesters marched from Mughalpura to Falaknuma against the actor who has a case registered in the city for hurting the religious sentiments of the Muslim community. In 2013, during a "Being Human" fashion show, a model walked the ramp with the name "Allah" inscribed at the bottom of her attire, which hurt the sentiments of some people from the community.

However, on Monday, the city police took an immediate action against the protesters not to disturb the starry function.

"About 15 agitators were set to march up to the Falaknuma Police station where a complaint against Salman has been registered for hurting the sentiments of Muslims... Allah was mentioned on the dress of a model walking the ramp... The agitators demanded justice in the case, which was registered in the Falaknuma police station," Inspector Yellappa from Mughalpura police told Deccan Chronicle.

"We have arrested about five of the agitators out of the 15," he added.

Reportedly, a few days back, a social worker had demanded the arrest of Salman, who has two criminal cases registered in the jurisdiction of Falaknuma and Banjara Hills police station limits.

When asked about the issue, Salman's father Salim Khan said: "I am just boarding the flight to Hyderabad for my daughter's wedding reception... All I can is say that I am the happiest father today. I am not aware of any agitation at all. We are all in a celebratory mood."

Meanwhile, Arpita's marriage with her long term boyfriend and aspiring actor Aayush Sharma at the royal mansion, will be attended by several biggies from the world of politics, cricket, business and film industries. The marriage will be followed by a grand reception in Mumbai on 21 November.
