Show host Salman Khan, who meets and greets the housemates every Sunday, dropped an oblique reference to the cash ban on the last Weekend Ka Vaar episode aired last Sunday
"If someone wants a Pakistani actor who can portray a role better, nobody can put a constraint. Bollywood has a huge number of fans in Pakistan and earns a good share of income from the neighbouring country," said Salman Khan
"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," said secretary, Bombay News Photographers' Association
The ban was imposed after a skirmish at one of promotional events for his last blockbuster Kick
Aamir Khan, who recently made a public appearance in support of his daughter Ira's charity football match, is said to have had a word with photographers over their ongoing ban on his friend, Salman Khan.
Bollywood superstar Salman Khan, who recently faced a paparazzi boycott, says photographers can refuse to click his pictures but they cannot "ban" him as there's no such provision in the law. He has also questioned if it will even affect his stardom.
Actor Salman Khan, who has been banned by the paparazzi, says that the loss is on both sides even as he made it clear that photographers should not be under any misconception that stars exist because of them.
Bollywood A-lister Salman Khan has strongly urged his fans on Twitter to watch Kamal Haasan's movie, currently banned in Tamil Nadu.
