The whole thing happened when Salman was launching the trailer to his highly anticipated upcoming movie Kick, and during the event there ensued some ruckus and one of Salman’s bodyguards manhandled a photographer. The photographers, of course, were none too happy about it, and in the argument that followed Salman basically provoked them even more by simply saying that they were welcome to leave if they so wished. Now that’s pretty much a polite way of saying I don’t need you now, isn’t it?
The outraged photographers left and Salman decided to add insult to injury, so to speak, albeit in a dignified manner, with this tweet:
They have all the right to take a stand and to not take my pictures and I am so happy, but it is also a sad story as every coin has two sides. They had banned me long time ago. I was very happy. I was so peaceful. Every 10 years, there are 10 or 12 (such) people who come…it does not work like that.
And we have a ban!
Well, Salman is neither phased by this or angry, as he has made it clear that from this point forth he will be hiring his own personal photographers who will follow him around and take his pictures to be released to the media.
A star like Salman can afford to make such a gutsy move as the publications will surely take the photos whatever the source is, since the fans can’t get enough of their beloved idol.
In any case, he is busy promoting his film Kick these days and hasn’t got too much time to spend on these issues. Not to mention the legal troubles from his past catching up to him again.
Kick has Salman in the lead and also stars Jacqueline Fernandez, Randeep Hooda and Nawazuddin Siddiqui. It is slated for release on July 25th.
