Tamil people staged protest against Salman Khan in front of the Bollywood superstar's residence in Mumbai Sunday for supporting Sri Lankan president Mahinda Rajapaksa.
Some Tamils are upset with the "Wanted" star, who recently visited Sri Lanka to campaign for Rajapaksa, ahead of the presidential election in the island-country.
Security has been increased outside Salman's Galaxy apartment because of the protest, which began Sunday morning from around 10 a.m.
An official from the Bandra police station told IANS: "Yes, today (Sunday) morning a few police were present for protection at Salman's residence during the protest and a few people who protested have been detained by the police and their inquiry is going on".
Salman was present in Sri Lanka along with his "Kick" co-star Jacqueline Fernandez, who is a former Sri Lankan beauty queen.
