On IIFA Rocks 2023 green carpet, Vicky told reporters, when asked about the viral clip, “Kayi baar bahut baatein badh jaati hain. Bohut uss baarein mein unnecessary chatter hota hai. Uska koi fayda nahi hai (Several times things are blown out of proportion. There are unnecessary chatters about many things). Things are not actually as they seem sometimes in the video. There is no point in talking about that.”

Salman hugs Vicky
At the same event, Vicky and Salman Khan also met each other and shared a warm hug. In a clip shared by a paparazzo account, Vicky was seen talking to several people as Salman walked and stood next to him. Vicky turned around and the two actors hugged. Reacting to the clip, a fan wrote, “Awwww!!! Haters can go cry in a corner now!” Another said, “I didn’t want to comment on the alleged shoving until I watched the video. I just did and I must admit that I can’t see why this is being made a big deal.”
Salman and Vicky are currently attending the IIFA Awards in Abu Dhabi. In the much talked about video, Vicky posed for a picture with a fan as Salman entered from the opposite side, escorted by his security. Vicky, seemingly, attempted to shake hands with Salman. However, the actor’s bodyguards appeared to push him out of the way. As the video went viral on social media, many people reacted to the video.
