The Saathiya actor started dating Aishwarya Rai, the ex-girlfriend of Salman Bhai. Vivek Oberoi in 2003 told the media that Salman drunk called him numerous times and harassed him.

2.Anurag Kashyap and lack of beginner’s luck
Anurag Kashyap has garnered a name from Gangs of Wasseypur in 2012. But did you know he was the initial director’s choice for the famous film Tere Naam? Salman’s performance was the highlight of the movie. But, Anurag wasn’t happy with the casting and didn’t think Salman was fit for the role. Things got ugly when he asked Salman to grow his chest hair. Anurag claims that the producer threw a glass bottle at him for asking Salman to grow chest hair. Later he was removed from the film, and Satish Kaushik was brought along as the director. Till today, they both don’t get along.
3.Sleepy Arijit Singh
Arijit Singh has ruled the decade with his soulful voice. But, Salman Khan got between his bidding success and fame.

Salman Khan also jokingly replied that it is not his fault but the sleepy music. (The music playing than was Arijit’s Tum Hi Ho) Later the singer apologized for his actions on social media, but things didn’t quite settle ever since.

She took on social media, writing long posts against Salman Khan. Since then, Renuka’s most successful movie has been Hum Aapke Hain Kon, starring Salman Khan.
5.Zubair Khan met the Bigger Boss
Not everyone dares to get on a Salman Khan show and talk rudely to him. This is exactly what Zubair Khan did on Big Boss 11. It all started when Salman Khan shouted at Zubair for his rude behavior in one of the episodes and later kicked him out of the show. Zubair couldn’t take this and threatened Salman saying that he is not Vivek Oberoi; He also said he would file an FIR against him, but he didn’t. He has failed to make it big in the film industry till now.
6.Ranbir Kapoor’s love triangle
Ranbir Kapoor dated Salman Khan’s ex-girlfriend Katrina Kaif, and from then on, they didn’t get along. Though Ranbir made it big in the industry, it is no secret he had seen a fair amount of struggle. Salman Khan even made a cameo appearance in Ranbir Kapoor and Katrina Kaif starrer Ajab Prem Ki Gajab Kahani. So, it is sad that the two biggies of the industry don’t get along.
7.The Bold Sona Mohapatra
Sona Mohapatra is talented, and people were starting to appreciate her career until she decided to talk about Salman Khan. Though she is not wrong, this didn’t work for her career. She spoke about the Black Buck case, the unfortunate footpath incident, and about an ugly remark Salman made during Sultan’s promotion. She is courageous and strong, but the situation turned against her.
