The couple has been having arguments for some time now but things came to a head about 20 days ago. The couple had a major fight over various issues the main one being Katrina's growing proximity to her Ajab Prem Ki Gajab Kahani (APKGK) co-star Ranbir Kapoor."
A friend close to the actor says, "Initially, Salman didn't pay heed to the Kat-Ranbir rumours. Especially as the actress told him that the Kapoor boy had a crush on her and she wasn't interested in him. But stories carried back by the unit of (APKGK) from Ooty, confirmed his suspicions.
When Salman confronted his girlfriend, she turned around and told him that she didn't question him about his link-up with Asin, so had no business asking her about her friendship with her co-stars." Sources also reveal that Salman (43) has been wanting to get married and have kids, while Katrina (24) feels she's too young to be tied down. "The couple has had many arguments on this subject."
It's a cooling off period between the couple now. The source says, "A few days ago, SalKat had a major fight, though no one knows what the fight was about this time. And they decided to call it quits for some time. Katrina, who has been staying in Salman's Bandra apartment, shifted out to her own one (bought by Salman) on Waterfield Road. Two days ago Salman told his friends that he and Katrina were 'just friends'.
Adds a friend of the actress, "Katrina has been in a low mood for the last couple of days and flew off to Singapore on Wednesday night to shoot for De Dhana Dhan with Akshay Kumar. More than a year ago they had gone through a similar situation, fought and almost broken up but got back together again. This time, their patch-up looks difficult." Katrina Kaif remained unavailable for comment. Sallu denied that anything of the sort took place.
