Did Salman Khan hit Katrina Kaif?

The shadow of being a 'woman beater' has darkened Salman Khan's life for a long time. While Aishwarya Rai came out in the open about it, there were rumours with Somy Ali and Sangeeta Bijlani, too.

We'd even heard reports of Salman slapping Katrina Kaif in a coffee shop while they were dating - but those were rubbished immediately.

Now reports claim Salman beat Kat once again - while shooting in Mumbai's Film City for Ek Tha Tiger.

Rumour has it that Salman got angry when he saw Katrina in a figure-hugging dress, abused her using really bad language, and then picked up a stick and hit her with it!

A visibly upset Kat was then reported to have rushed into her vanity van, where she called up close friend Kareena Kapoor to come and help calm Salman down.

Is all this true? We are not too sure.

A source claiming to be Kat's friend told reporters that it "is completely untrue".

"Salman and Katrina chose to work in the same film because there was no animosity between them," the source added. "They got along famously during the Dublin and Istanbul schedules. Salman cares for Katrina a lot. She is like family."

So did the rumour mills get it wrong, or is it just another cover up?
