Even in these cynical times, the news has the capacity to send a chill down the spine. Anger is a normal human emotion but any suggestion of abuse, whether physical or emotional, falls into murkier territory. More so when it allegedly involves two of HiFI’s biggest and most loved icons – Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif.
An eyewitness on the sets of EK THA TIGER narrated the incident with trepidation. Our mercurial, macho hero is known, after all, to lose his heart as easily and quickly as he loses his head. Most quake - and understandably so - at the thought of contradicting him. No one apparently dared to oppose him either, that strange day at Film City… It was a minor patch-work shooting schedule for YashRaj Films’ EK THA TIGER, which has otherwise been largely shot abroad, our source reveals. 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.
