Salman Khan lost his cool after being told that his look in Veer seemed to be a rip-off from Brad Pitt's image in the Hollywood epic Troy.
The incident took place at a press conference in New Delhi, to promote Salman's upcoming film Veer.
Salman launched an angry outburst at the journalist who asked him about his look in the movie.
"From what angle do you think my look is similar to any Hollywood actor's?" Salman thundered.
"Brad Pitt, for example, was wearing a mini-skirt in his film but I'm not. And does my hair in the posters look blonde to you (like Pitt's)?
Plus, I am wearing an allleather ensemble in Veer." Salman said he had sported blonde hair.
In Sooryavanshi, a dud flick he made in 1992. "So should I accuse Pitt of stealing my style in Troy?" he fumed.
That's not all. "And that other guy - what's his name - Russell Crowe, had long hair in Gladiator and I also have long hair in Veer. All this talk about similar looks is rubbish. A period war movie can't be with the hero wearing T-shirts and jeans, or a ghagracholi," he went on. He even told the reporter who had asked him the question that he (the scribe) would have looked great in a ghagra-choli with a gold chain on his waist.
