There has been a photographers ban on Salman Khan for a good few months now, as BizAsia has previously reported. However, thanks to a gesture he made for his sister Arpita’s recent wedding, it seems to have now come to an end.
Khan is thought to have especially invited photographers to Arpita’s wedding reception, thus offering an olive branch. The secretary of the Bombay News Photographers’ Association is quoted by India Today, “The photographers got an invitation from Salman for the reception and we thought it was a good way to come together and lift the ban. It meant that Salman has no problem with us. We thought the actor had a problem with us because of the way his bodyguards behaved with us and consequently enforced the ban. But this gesture from Salman spoke otherwise. We also have no personal egos. A marriage reception is an auspicious occasion and our best wishes are with the couple”.
The ban came into place when there was a scuffle between Khan۪s security and the paparazzi at a ‘Kick’ (2014) promotional event in July.
