But when Anushka was pregnant, he went to appear in World cup wrestling abroad, while giving birth, Anushka’s son was born but died within short time. He had B negative blood group, and could not find any donor in the village. Salman could have saved the child as he had B negative blood group. So Anushka Sharma asked Salman Khan to leave her. Salman left wrestling.
