In a promotional event, on recalling the incident, Salman said that,

“I learned swimming in Indore in a well when I was nine years old. My cousins tied a rope around my waist and threw me into the well and said ‘now move your arms and legs and you will learn swimming’. There was a turtle in the well, a small fish and a big fish and a water snake. I got so scared that I learned how to swim to save my life. After that, I won many certificates.”
