“It all began when the Katrina Kaif-Ranbir affair started. But Sallu refused to believe there was any truth to it. Ranbir's recent statement to a news channel that he was never dating Katrina irked Khan. It is believed that this has hurt Kaif. Salman might not be with the actress anymore, but he is still protective of her and cannot see her upset. He neither forgives nor forgets. He has decided to teach the youngster a lesson," Mid-Day quoted a source as saying.
The news has it that Salman has gone to the extent of asking his friends not to work with Ranbir. “There are hushed whispers in the industry that Salman Khan is sending feelers to his producer friends like Bhushan Kumar and Sajid Nadiadwala not to cast Ranbir Kapoor for their films," the source added.
