Mumbai: Salman Khan doesn’t take to rumours lightly. The actor’s absence from the special screening of ‘Anjaana Anjaani’ held by his own father once again affirmed that Sallu’s equation with Ranbir has gone from bad to worse. And it’s all owing to the media reports on Ranbir’s growing closeness with Salman’s ladylove Katrina Kaif that has peeved the actor.

So, even though Salman’s entire clan was present at a special screening of "Anjaana Anjaani", the actor stayed away on the pretext of prior professional engagements. However, insiders state that Salman is much too annoyed with the daily gossip about Ranbir taking a close interest in Katrina.

What has made matters worse is the recent interview by Deepika Padukone, who hinted that Ranbir had cheated on her with one of his co-stars. And going by the buzz, it was none other than Katrina Kaif who had caused a rift in Ranbir and Dips’ love abode.

Confirming the news of Salman’s growing animosity with Ranbir, a source said, "Though Salman is very close to producer Sajid Nadiadwala, in this case, friendship was far exceeded by his anger at the rumours linking Katrina with Ranbir. So while Salman was happy that Sajid could release his film in spite of the political stress, he chose to stay away."
