Mumbai: Bollywood’s enfant terrible Salman Khan has done it again! After taking potshots at ‘Guzaarish’ director Sanjay Leela Bhansali, Salman Khan slapped a fan outside Anil Kapoor’s residence, who reportedly kissed and hugged him. The hunk of an actor even had the slapgate footage deleted.

Talking to a news daily, an eyewitness said, “The incident happened moments after Salman arrived at Anil Kapoor’s birthday bash. Just a few moments before this, Anil had escorted Salman’s father, Salim Khan, into the party. Salman was alighting from his car when all of a sudden a man, who appeared to be in his mid-20s and called himself Ajay, rushed towards him, hugged him and then kissed him.”

“It seems Salman was in very high spirits. Without batting an eyelid, Salman slapped Ajay”, said the eyewitness.

Apparently, Ajay, who was least prepared for Salman’s wrath, was in an utter state of shock.

Meanwhile, an entertainment channel managed to take the footage of Salman’s misbehaviour. When Salman saw this, he got offend. At once, Salman’s security personnel came up and ordered the footage to be deleted. “Woh dadagiri karne lage. ‘Chal delete kar, chal jaldi delete kar,’ they said,” added the eyewitness.

When attempts were made to salvage the footage, Salman stepped in to request the erasure of the footage.

At this moment, Anil came rushing out. “Anil and Salim were wondering why Salman was taking so long to come, as they had already spotted Sallu’s car being parked outside the bungalow. Sensing the commotion, Anil went up to Salman Khan; he made a similar request regarding the footage,” said the witness.

Meanwhile, shielding Salman, another witness said, “The guy who hugged and kissed Salman was very aggressive. This is not the way to greet a star. You can’t get so close to them and make them this uncomfortable. Anybody else in Salman’s position would have done the same thing.”

Seconds after the recording was deleted, the stars went into the house. The party, which included B-town stars like Boney Kapoor, Karan Johar and Rani Mukerji, continued till dawn.

When contacted, Salman and Anil were unavailable for comment.
