Regular fistfights or verbal spats were very common back then in the 90’s. In today’s time, it happens as well but people have chosen the social media to rant. Also, the celebrities from the Bollywood industry do not react to the media much, they’ve learned to walk away.
This incident happened during the time of Rakesh Roshan’s reincarnation drama, ‘Karan Arjun’ starring Shahrukh Khan and Salman Khan.
The Bhaijaan of the industry Salman Khan had got into a fistfight with a photographer. The details of the whole incident are here.
There have been rumours that Salman Khan back in his time was of a very hot blood and now he is the media’s one of the favourite actors as he entertains and answers each and every question.
The details of the incident are in a book written by Nasreen Munni Kabir, ‘Aditya Chopra Relives… Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge’. Producer-Director Aditya Chopra had gone to the sets of Karan-Arjun to meet the lover boy Shahrukh Khan, along with the script of ‘DDLJ’ and wanted Khan to play the lead. SRK was not at all keen on doing a love story at that point of time in his career. Chopra tried to convince the actor a lot but one fine day, Adi went with his assistant director Karan Johar on the sets of Rakesh Roshan’s movie to inform SRK that since he is not interested they will be looking for someone else.
Aditya Chopra and Johar on reaching the Mehboob Studios and what they witnessed was pure madness, as they were waiting for the ‘Baazigar’ actor to arrive but there came a leading photographer who was very angry and started screaming, “ Where is Salman?”. The photographer was running and bumped straight into Salman who was coming from the opposite direction. The duo was very livid at seeing each other and a fistfight broke out. SRK came running and arrived there separated them and took Salman aside to calm him down.
There are no details of the photographer as who he was and what was the reason for this fight, what happened later. Can you guess?
