Several pictures of Salman Khan were leaked from the sets of "Sultan" during the film's shooting. The superstar has now revealed how the pictures were clicked and leaked from the movie's sets in spite of having tight security.

Salman, at a recent event, said that although cameras were strictly not allowed on the sets of "Sultan," junior artists used to hide their mobile phones inside their underwear and click pictures.

"Sets par logo ko kaha jata tha ki koi camera use nahi karega but junior artists underwear me mobile chupa kar photo click kar lete the or leak kar dete the. Bohot bura lagta tha ki film ke sets se photos leak ho rahi hai par kya kar sakte hai (It was told to everyone that no one should use cameras on the sets but junior artists used to hide mobile phone inside their underwear, click pictures and used to leak those. We used to feel bad that photos were being leaked from the film's sets but what could be done!)," Pinkvilla quoted Salman as saying.

Earlier, a number of photos of Salman were leaked from the sets of "Sultan" and were circulated on the social media. Directed by Ali Abbas Zafar, the movie "Sultan" also features Anushka Sharma. Salman and Anushka will be seen romancing each other and the duo plays the characters of wrestlers.

Produced by Yash Raj Films, the film also features Randeep Hooda and Amit Sadh in key roles. "Sultan" is slated to be released on Eid this year.
