New Delhi: Bollywood superstar Salman Khan, after appearing with Narendra Modi at a kite festival, has now reportedly said that the Gujarat Chief Minister need not apologise for the post-Godhra riots in Gujarat in 2002.

Salman told a news channel during an interview that since the judiciary has exonerated Modi for his alleged involvement in the riots, he should not say sorry for the communal violence.

However, Salman refused to endorse Modi for the prime minister`s post, saying he was not in a position yet to do the same.
I do not want my views to influence millions of my fans` judgement, he added.

He added that it was fun to fly kites with the Gujarat Chief Minister.
