Actor Salman Khan has been caught on camera, seemingly assaulting a man. According to several reports, the actor lost his cool when he saw the man - reportedly a security guard - manhandle a young fan of his.

Cellphone videos shared on the internet show the actor walking, surrounded by his security team. He stops suddenly, apparently noticing something, turns around and swings at a person standing on the side. “Omg, @BeingSalmanKhan literally slapped a security guard for getting rough with a fan kid!” one person wrote on Twitter.
