At the launch of Party with Devil on Friday - the latest song from his upcoming film Kick - the camerapersons reportedly requested Salman to pose at a particular spot, which the star refused to do. A face-off began between the star's security detail and the shutterbugs at 10.30pm and continued till 11pm, reported a tabloid.

After that Salman allegedly said, "Those who want to cover the event are welcome to stay, the rest can leave if they wish," leading to more aggravation.
While Kick's team alleged that camerapersons were being very aggressive and disrupting the event, mediapersons decided to ban Salman Khan till he apologised for the fracas.
On Monday, Salman posted a newsreport regarding the ban on Twitter with 'ha ha ha' as his reaction.

Earlier, shutterbugs had banned actor Shraddha Kapoor when she refused to pose for them at an event. The star reportedly met the mediapersons to sort out the 'misunderstanding'.
The camerapersons union is supposed to meet today to take a decision on the show.
