Salman Khan is one of the few people in the film industry who can take and make jokes about his bitter and broken relationships. But, he knows when to pull the chain.

At a recently-concluded awards show, he shut up some of his friends who were speculating what the situation would be like if Salman and his ex-lover Aishwarya Rai Bachchan were to meet each other.

According to a Spotboye report, the actor wasn't too pleased with some of his friends who were joking about the two bumping into each other at the ceremony. "Just shut up yaar. Cut the topic right now," he reportedly said. Considering how witty and fun-spirited Salman is, a reaction like this would definitely be inappropriate for those who know him well.

His pals were shocked as they hadn't expected such a blunt response from the superstar. "Salman's friends were in for a rude shock because they have never seen him react that way, especially on jokes. They realised that he was extremely angry about the episode, so they withdrew and left him alone for a while to calm down," an told the web portal.

What's interesting to note is, he has made several jibes at ex-girlfriend Katrina Kaif in the last few days. His comment on this leading lady during "Prem Ratan Dhan Payo" promotions at "Comedy Nights With Kapil" was strongly criticised by some. Also, at his sister's wedding, he jokingly addressed Katrina as Mrs. Kapoor.
