Salman Khan was the perfect friend when he jumped to defend his ex-girlfriend Katrina Kaif’s bikini pictures with her current boyfriend Ranbir Kapoor in Ibiza.These pictures were sensational and had made the well guarded affair of Ranbir-Kat public. Sallu’s recent protective response managed to do what Ranbir’s anger and Katrina’s letter to media did not.
In a recent interview, the Dabangg Khan defended his Ek Tha Tiger co-star fiercely when a reporter quizzed the star about the bikini pictures, “Aapki aisi tasveer, aapki maa ki beheno ki aisi tasveer ayegi toh aapko kaise lagega? Nahi, agar aapke boyfriend ki bhi aisi koi tasveer ajaye toh aapko bhi accha nahi lagega, toh I think jo aaapko achha nahi lagega, woh kisi aur ko bhi achha nahi lagega. Filmon me jo hota hai woh theek hai, lekin personal life ko aisa expose karna woh theek nahi hai, woh aapka adhikaar bhi nahi hai.”
(If your, your mother or sister’s such pictures would be out in the media how would you feel? Even if your boyfriend’s such pictures came out would you like it? If you will not like such things, others won’t like it too. What we do in films is a different matter, but exposing one’s personal life in this manner is not right, you do not have any right to do something like this.)
Sallu seemed to have followed all the buzz about his ex’s holiday pictures very closely and we weren’t surprised when Salman even commented on Kat’s letter to the media, “Ji maine padha bahut achha bahut khoobsoorti se, samajhdari se likha unhone yeh letter. Jo public appearances hai woh theek hai, jo private life personal pictures hai duniya ke saamne dikhana galat baat hai… kya boltey hai usko ghatiya baat hai.”
(I read that letter and I thought she had written it down very well, made a lot of sense. The public appearances we make is fine, but bringing our private moments and personal pictures isn’t right, it is very cheap!)
While Salman was a staunch Kat supporter and guarded his ex-girlfriend’s privacy, Ranbir Kapoor had a different take, he went ahead to appreciate his ladylove’s look in a bikini, “Picture mein Katrina Kaif bahut sundar lag rahi hai, aur Ibiza bhi bahut hi sundar jagah hai pls jaaker aap visit kijiyega“
(Katrina looked very beautiful in a bikini and the beach in Ibiza id beautiful too, I recommend that you visit it too).
We know how protective Sallu is about people he cares and despite all reports of Salman-Kat growing apart post the break up, we now know that Salman isn’t the most loved star in B-town for no reason. Nobody cares for his people the way this Khan does, guess nobody loves his friends the way he does and nobody ever messes with Sallu’s ladies – no, not even if it is an ‘ex’!
