We already know Sallu Bhai has a bad boy reputation in the film industry but here's an amusing fact--he was always the known bad boy since his childhood days and he didn't earn the title just in Bollywood!
It turns out the actor was a mischievous lad during his school days too and it was all revealed when he came on The Kapil Sharma Show with his family. The actor's father, Salim Khan, made a fantastic revelation on the show sharing an instance of how Salman and his brothers used to procure leaked exam papers, to help them pass school exams! And here we are left wondering why he couldn't memorise his syllabus like he does his dialogues? Maybe verbatim confuses him? Who knows!

On the show, while Salman was seated with his father, Arbaaz and Sohail Khan, Salim, 83, narrated a few incidents and anecdotes from his sons' lives, in a candid conversation with the host and one of them was as bizarre as it was funny. According to Salim, a man used to come over to their house, when the three boys were in school and was given a lot of importance. Out of sheer curiosity, Salim tried to find out who the man actually was, who was getting more importance than the owner of the house. Turns out the man, Ganesh, was a middleman who used to deliver leaked exam papers to the kids!
"Hamare ghar ek aadmi aata tha, Ganesh aaya...Ganesh aaya. Ganesh ko chai pilao. Ganesh ko stool dena baithne ke liye. Maine kaha, kaun hai ye? Mere ghar mein mujhse zyada izzat milti hai ise. Maine kaha mujhe pata lagana chahiye kaun hai ye. Toh pata laga ki jab paper leak hota tha exam ka, woh unko laakar deta tha" narrated Salim.

We're not so proud of this Salman but we'll take it with a pinch of salt, just like how we take your movies usually! Thankfully though, Salman didn't choose the Rubi Rai and Saurabh Shresht route, which involved an education fraud in Bihar to be honest as he just took some help from the already leaked papers to pass exams.
All in all, we're mighty relieved Bhai was still learning the tricks of the trade as a kid and didn't get into too much trouble back then. Can't say the same right now though, can we?
