Bollywood actor Salman Khan, notorious for his bad temper, lost his cool again when a reporter asked him about photos showing a bikini-clad Katrina Kaif and her alleged boyfriend Ranbir Kapoor.

Salman was previously dating Katrina and is now said to be romatically linked with Romanian actress Iulia Vantur. Salman and Vantur were spotted having a good time during the shooting of his film, "Mental" in Hyderabad, but it seems the "Dabangg" star has still not gotten over his ex-flame.   

The 47-year-old actor was said to have gotten upset when a reporter asked him at a recent event about Katrina and Ranbir's vacation pictures that emerged online last week. The Times of India reported that the actor hurled a tirade of abuse when asked about his ex-flame.

Katrina and Ranbir were recently spotted at a beach in Spain and later at a coffee shop in Sri Lanka. Katrina had worn a a bikini and was with her rumoured boyfriend Ranbir when they were snapped while holidaying in Spain. The photos, which were published by Stardust magazine, created lot of buzz in the film industry, and had apparently not gone down too well with Ranbir's parents - Rishi and Neetu Kapoor. 

Even after Katrina parted ways with Salman after their blockbuster film "Ek Tha Tiger" in 2012, she still seems to be taking his advice.

The 30-year-old actress made her Bollywood debut in 2003 film "Boom" which bombed at the box office. She finally shot to fame after working with Salman in 2005 flick "Maine Pyar Kyun Kia".

"He's had a huge role in my career. There's no doubt about that. I value his opinion. But as a person, Salman has had the biggest impact on my life. I became friends with him when I was young. And his persona is very strong. If I were to look back and see his impact on my life, it's been tremendous," Katrina had told Filmfare.
