Love him or hate him but you simply cannot ignore superstar Salman Khan. If it isn’t his charm, Bhaijaan is in the headlines for his anger. And the unwritten rule remains that NO ONE can do anything that rubs him the wrong way.   

After singer Arijit Singh’s public apology to Salman Khan went viral on social media, there has been a lot of speculation on why the singer did that. And it turns out that the public apology was for an incident that occurred in 2014. Although Salman hasn’t said anything on the issue, reports suggest that Pakistani singer Rahat Fateh Ali Khan has now been approached to sing a song for Sultan that was originally sung by Arijit. 

But the actor losing his temper and holding on to grudges is now the stuff of legend. Remember these instances?

1.When Salman Khan gave a piece of his mind to the Big Boss contestant Imam Siddique on National Television

Salman Khan rebuked the fashion designer on live television for insulting Shah Rukh Khan and Preity Zinta. The fashion designer claimed he had helped both the celebrities to reach the pinnacle of their careers. This statement infuriated Salman, who took him down and backed the two actors. 

2. When Salman blamed the media for igniting the Saifai controversy

Salman Khan, along with other celebrities like Madhuri Dixit and Alia Bhatt, were slammed for dancing in a cultural event in the ancestral village of Samajwadi Party chief Mulayam Singh Yadav in 2014.

The event invited a lot of negative publicity and government was criticised for wasting money on Bollywood stars  at a time when Muzaffarnagar riot victims struggling without proper rehabilitation.

 Salman was the only actor who took a stand on the issue and blamed media for misleading the “innocent public” into what he claimed was the wrong portrayal of the celebrities. He said that the media used snippets of him and other celebrities to garner more viewership in his television interviews.

4. When Vivek Oberoi went public about his feud with Salman

The Salman-Vivek-Aishwarya fiasco remains to be one of the most infamous controversies of Bollywood. Following the press conference where Vivek Oberoi went public about his feud with Salman Khan, he faced a near boycott from the entire film industry. Salman refused to relent despite Vivek’s many apologies over the years.
