Salman reprimanded Imam for “speaking rubbish” and spoiling his mood after celebrating a “good birthday.”
Fashion and image manager Imam Siddiqui, who is one of the participants of reality show Bigg Boss 6 offended host Salman Khan with his rude behavior and reports are that an angry Salman has threatened to beat him up after the shoot.
According to a source: "During the shoot of the weekend episode, Imam picked up a fight with Salman. Not done with just a heated exchange of words, the actor told Imam he would come to the Bigg Boss house and beat him up."
He reprimanded Imam for "speaking rubbish" and spoiling his mood after celebrating a "good birthday."
Apparently, Salman even walked off the sets during the shoot and returned later to resume the filming. No amount of apologies rendered by Imam could soothe his nerves.
"Salman's main grouse was that Imam was openly flouting the house rules. After the huge showdown, he walked off the show. Resuming the shoot after a while, he kept his conversations with Imam to a bare minimum, only enquiring about the weekend's nomination," added the source.
Imam apparently tried very hard to apologise to Salman but the actor brushed him off.
The star also went on record to state how Imam and his brother Moin had been constantly pestering him with requests to be included on the show since the last five years. Moin refused to comment on the matter.
For those who missed the episode on TV, here is a round-up of what triggered Salman's ire...
Being the weekend, it was time for nominating the person who would be exiting the Bigg Boss house. Imam nominated model Niketan Madhok, who is the current captain of the house and has already reached the show's finale. Despite being reminded it was against the house rules, Imam paid no attention to Salman. Imam later also cited how he had helped Shah Rukh Khan and Preity Zinta reach the pinnacle of success. Surprisingly, Salman backed SRK saying it was his work and nothing else that has made him what he is today.
