“Mujhe aisa lagta hai ki woh tasveerein na kuch woh publicity stunt tha aur woh morphed tasveerein hain. Kyunki mujhe nahin lagta ki woh…Ranbir toh honge hi par mujhe woh Katrina nahin lagti. Face hoga kisi aur ki body hogi..morphed tasveerein,” he had said.
He added, “Par sochiye sir, koi chutti pe gaya hai personal holidays par aur kisi ne woh tasveer kheech ke daal diya hai. How disgusting! Yeh hamaari maa, beheno ke saath bhi ho sakta hai. How would you guys react when something like this happens with your wives or to your sisters. It’s a disgusting thing.”
Another time, Salman had said, “If such pictures of yours, your mothers or sister’s would be out in the media how would you feel? Even if your boyfriend’s such pictures came out would you like it? If you will not like such things, others won’t like it too. What we do in films is a different matter, but exposing one’s personal life in this manner is not right, you do not have any right to do something like this.”
Katrina had written an open letter to the media saying, “I am writing this to say that I feel most upset, distressed and invaded at my pictures published in a film magazine (and which were carried by other media). The pictures were taken while I was on holiday by someone who, in an act of cowardice, has shot without permission and then used the pictures for commercial gain.
There is a breed of journalism that preys on celebrities in the worst possible manner crossing all lines of privacy and decency. Running these pictures shows support for this school of journalism.
I request that all media running these pictures please refrain from doing so. I have a wonderful relationship with the media and have been accessible to the media at all times. There is no reason for this furtive and invasive behavior.”
