Banned by the paparazzi, Bollywood actor Salman Khan has said that both sides stand to lose in the whole controversy. Interestingly, he made it clear that photographers should not be under any misconception that stars exist because of them.

Last week, at a promotional event in Mumbai for his next film Kick, camera-persons requested Salman to pose at a particular spot, which he reportedly turned down.

Apparently thereafter a scuffle took place between the photographers and Salman's security guards at the event following which the actor went on to say, "Those who want to cover the event are welcome to stay, the rest can leave if they wish."

This worsened the situation after which press photographers decided to boycott the Dabangg star.

Asked to comment Salman said, "Why should I step in it is not my job. It is between (private) bodyguards and press photographers. I am a star I have come here I stand and you take pictures. It is your choice to not to take my pictures. I hope they can survive." 

"At least there are some people who have taken a stand whether it is right or wrong is a different thing. It is their loss and even my loss in this thing," he said in an interview.

"If they think we cannot to do without them or if they think we are there because of them then it is not true. This has to be checked. We stand there because they are working hard. They have to make money (as well) as they have family," he said.

"Even after getting pictures the photographers keep waiting and clicking photos... Also, I would be happy if that whole fraternity says we will not take his pictures.. I would be really happy," he added.
