Reportedly, Salman asked the men to not click pictures

Notably, Pinkvilla brought to light another side of the story. Quoting an onlooker, the portal claimed Salman was riding his cycle when two men came close to him and started clicking pictures.

Salman asked the men to stop doing so, but they didn't listen.

One of the men pretended like he had to take out something from car's boot and continued to click pictures.

Reportedly, the actions of the men caused a traffic jam too. At this point, Salman took their phones from them, the onlooker said.

"But after cycling a little ahead, he gave it to his bodyguards who returned the phone to the man," the person added.

Considering Salman has historically shown little respect for law, one wouldn't be surprised if he indeed misbehaved with the fans.
