Salman blamed the media for portraying only one side of the story. He said that the media is all on Iqbal Sharma's side and isn't even bothered to learn what happened with Saif. Salman's supportive version also say that the media should have dug deep into the matter and learnt the entire issue.
Saif, who has been alleged to punch an NRI named Iqbal Sharma in a restaurant at Colaba, also gets full support from girlfriend Kareena Kapoor, who feels that Sharma is a publicity hungry man. While Saif defended himself by claiming that he was provoked and was hit first, an eyewitness in the restaurant put the entire blame game on the actor, claiming that it was Saif who had first hit the NRI.
