|Bollywood superstar Salman Khan who has been boycotted by some media photographers is not buckling under pressure, even though the release of his film Kick is approaching closer and promotional events are lined up.
At the launch of his song ‘Devil - Yaar Naa Miley’ in Mumbai last Friday, a scuffle broke out between some photographers and the security personnel. Salman sided with security men and told the photographers, “those who want to leave can leave.” This irked a bunch of photogs who’ve boycotted him ever since.
Now, in an interview, Salman Khan has spoken about the mutual co-existence of the press and the celebrities but also dared the entire paparazzi community to boycott him.
“If they (paparazzi) think, we cannot to do without them or if they think we are there because of them then it is not true. This has to be checked. We stand there because they are working hard. They have to make money (as well) as they have family,” Salman is quoted as saying by PTI.

Salman added that he would be happy is the whole press fraternity boycotts him.
“Even after getting pictures, the photographers keep waiting and clicking photos. Also, I would be happy if that whole fraternity says we will not take his pictures. I would be really happy,” Salman Khan said.
Salman is the second Bollywood celebrity to be boycotted by paparazzi after Shraddha Kapoor within a month. The boycott on Shraddha was called off when she cleared up the misunderstanding with the press.
