Salman Khan was reportedly irked by a photojournalist recently when the latter tried to click some pictures of the superstar during the shooting of "Sultan." Salman's bodyguards spotted the photographer and the actor then reportedly delivered some intimidating words to him.

A report in the SpotboyE said that the photographer was clicking photos of a bare-bodied Salman while he was shooting a sequence for "Sultan." The "Bajrangi Bhaijaan" actor's bodyguards spotted the lensman and informed Salman about him.

Salman then instantly put on a T-shirt and headed towards the photographer, but did not yell at him, instead making him sit on a chair and saying some intimidating words. "Mujhe kyun chase kar rahe ho? Tum log duniya bhar ke stories likhte ho. Mujhe ban bhi kiya aur phir mera peecha bhi karte ho. Mujhe ban karke kya ukhaad liya? Aur photo leke kya ukhaad loge? (Why are you chasing me? You people write all the kinds of stories. You banned me, but you still follow me. What have you achieved by banning me? And what will you achieve by taking my photo?)" the report quoted Salman as saying.

Salman was shunned by photojournalists in July 2014 after the his bodyguards allegedly misbehaved with some lensmen at a promotional event during the release of "Kick." However, the "ban" was lifted when Salman invited some freelance photographers to the wedding ceremony of his sister Arpita Khan Sharma.

A number of pictures from the sets of "Sultan" were leaked earlier, revealing Salman's bare-bodied look in the film, even before makers of the movie could officially release the poster. The film will present the actor as a wrestler from Haryana, and is slated to be released on Eid this year.
