Did Salman Khan beat Katrina Kaif on Ek Tha Tiger sets?
A magazine report claims that Salman Khan beat up ex-flame Katrina Kaif when she walked in wearing a "figurehugging, cleavage-revealing dress that showed too much skin." Katrina's friend vehemently denies the incident saying the report is completely untrue.Updated: Jul 03, 2012 13:53 IST
What the magazine report says
"Salman was supposedly sitting out on the set, waiting for his heroine to emerge from her vanity van. When she did, it was allegedly in a figurehugging, cleavage-revealing dress that showed too much skin. Or so Salman is said to have felt. Irritated, he supposedly questioned her about what she was wearing and why. Katrina apparently shrugged her slim shoulders and quipped that it was the director’s decision. …A perfectly legitimate response but one that evidently caused her ex-beau to flip his lid. ‘I’ll see your director!’ he is supposed to have retorted hotly, before allegedly breaking out into a torrent of foul language. But worse was apparently yet to come," said the cover story in the July issue of Cineblitz.
Katrina's friend rubbishes the story
"This is completely untrue. Salman and Katrina chose to work in the same film because there was no animosity between them. They got along famously during the Dublin and the Istanbul schedules. Salman cares for Katrina a lot. She is like family," a friend told Mumbai Mirror.
"People make up a lot of stories. Only because they couldn't keep up to their commitment of making an appearance at an awards function, rumours started flying," she added.
"How did the magazine know what happened inside Katrina's vanity when she had locked it? Kareena visiting her friend Salman doesn't necessarily have to be instigated by a phone call from his co-star," the friend told the tabloid.
"Kat has many projects lined up. She doesn't have time for silly rumours generated by the media. In fact she had to turn down Karan Johar's offer of Dostana 2 because she couldn't adjust her dates," the friend further added.
