Mumbai: For those who thought Salman Khan was back to women beating days, there is news. Sources have rubbished a recent report which stated that Salman had hit former lady love Katrina Kaif on the sets of ‘Ek Tha Tiger’.

The report alleged that Salman did not appreciate Katrina’s figure hugging dress and abused her and even hit her with a stick! Apparently Kat called up Kareena, who was shooting nearby and Bebo had to rush to cool down good friend Salman.

Rubbishing the entire incident, a friend of Katrina’s said, “This is completely untrue. Salman and Katrina chose to work in the same film because there was no animosity between them. They got along famously during the Dublin and the Istanbul schedules. Salman cares for Katrina a lot. She is like family.”

Lashing out at the magazine that carried the report, the friend added, “People make up a lot of stories. Only because they couldn`t keep up to their commitment of making an appearance at an awards function, rumours started flying.”

The friend also refused that Kat had made an SOS call to Kareena from her vanity van. “How did the magazine know what happened inside Katrina`s vanity when she had locked it? Kareena visiting her friend Salman doesn`t necessarily have to be instigated by a phone call from his co-star,” added the friend.

While the couple in question chose not to react to the fabricated story, Katrina’s friend said that the actress was too busy with her work to react to such stories. “Kat has many projects lined up. She doesn`t have time for silly rumours generated by the media. In fact she had to turn down Karan Johar`s offer of Dostana 2 because she couldn`t adjust her dates.”

In the past, Salman has been accused by his former girlfriends of physically assaulting them.
