Salman takes potshots at Bhansali

Salman Khan is upset with his favourite director Sanjay Leela Bhansali. Referring to Bhansali's latest movie Guzaarish, Salman said, "“Arre, usme toh makhi udd rahi thi, lekin koi machhar bhi nahi gaya dekhne. Arre, koi kutta bhi nahin gaya.”

The actor was attending a television awards ceremony on Monday evening, to felicitate physically handicapped achievers, reports Mumbai Mirror.

He reportedly asked a hearing-impaired girl if she had met Bhansali and told her, "Jaake usko milo. Voh tumhare pe Salmanpicture bana dega, khud khoob kamayega, lekin tumko kuch nahin dega," (Go and meet him, he’ll make a film on you. He’ll make pots of money but won’t pay you a dime).

But why's the actor miffed with Bhansali with whom he has done acclaimed movies like Khamoshi, Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam and Saawariya? Guess we have the answer. Some time back, Salman gifted Sanjay Leela Bhansali a DVD of Christopher Nolan’s The Prestige. The idea of Guzaarish apparently cropped from there. But to Sallu's disappointment, Bhansali signed on Hrithik Roshan instead of him.

When asked if he would have liked to do the film, he said: “Nah. Apan Dabangg se khush hain.” Sour grapes, eh?
