There was a time when Salman Khan and Ranbir Kapoor were quite close to each other. Salman did a cameo in Ranbir’s debut film, Saawariya and Ranbir couldn’t stop praising the Bhai for his sweet gesture. However, this friendship came to an end when Ranbir started dating Salman Khan’s ex-girlfriend Katrina Kaif. Salman was quite furious about this and his first appearance on Karan Johar's coffee couch was living testament to that.
Not only did he bring up Ranbir - Katrina again and again but also didn't miss a chance to poke fun at them. It all started when Salman appeared on Koffee with Karan season 4. He was asked to associate celebs name with an animal and when Karan said ‘puppy', Salman instantly took Ranbir's name. Not just that, at one point in the chat show, Salman even joked and accused Ranbir Kapoor of leaking his holiday pictures with Katrina Kaif which had become the talk of the town at that time.
When Karan Johar breached the subject of paparazzi invasion and said, "There's a paparazzi invasion now. Like when photographs of Katrina were leaked online." Salman was quick to ask, "Ranbir didn't do that?" If you thought that was the end, you are wrong. During the rapid fire round, on being asked what advice would he give to the celebs, Salman had quite a candid and sassy reply.
To Ranbir: Have fun!
To Katrina: Make sure he doesn't have fun!
To Hrithik Roshan: You stay out of this
When Karan asked Salman Khan, who's more beautiful Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Kareena Kapoor or Katrina Kaif, he instantly said, "Aishwarya Rai" and then added, "Then Katrina Kaif."
Though Salman was in a light-hearted mood during the talk show, he went on to defend Katrina at several interviews post that.
