The actor continued to have his way with Yash Raj, when he hosted several private screenings of Ek Tha Tiger and even a party, a first for the banner…

As far as Salman Khan is concerned, rules are meant to be broken. Or in the least, bent to meet his needs. And thus, the actor has so far made sure that he got his way with his producers, Yash Raj Films - be it parking his vanity van in the sacrosanct premises of the studio, or having his Ek Tha Tiger co-star Katrina’s dress altered for a song.
Mirror has learnt, that Khan has managed to turn a few rules upside down even after the film shoot is over. He managed to hold two private screenings at the YRF studios for his friends and family. And then parties in the premises till the wee hours of the morning. Needless to say, in the history of Yash Raj, such screenings or after-movie-parties are a first.
Thus on Monday night, Salman along with brother Sohail Khan, father Salim Khan, sister Alvira Agnihotri and brother-in-law Atul Agnihotri were huddled in the screening theatre in YRF Studios. Of course, co-star Katrina Kaif, sister Arpita, her ex-beau Arjun Kapoor and certain other friends from the industry, including Rani Mukerji’s parents were also present.
A source close to the star told Mirror, “Salman is really excited about Ek Tha Tiger. He believes that his family and close friends will give him an honest opinion. And thus, he has arranged for not one but several screenings of the film. While a few shows will be held at Ketnav, the screening theatre in Bandra where most of Salman’s films are held, the majority of screenings will take place at the YRF Studios in Andheri.”
Another source, who was present for the screening on Monday, added, “Malaika and Arbaaz were absent. Salman’s mother was also not there. So another screening will soon be held for sure. But the Monday screening was a success. The film started at 10 pm. But nobody left the studio compound before 4 am. After the film, they were partying till morning.”
Interestingly, YRF, a production house that does not hold press shows till the date of release to keep their film a secret, have allowed Salman to arrange special screenings this time around. Needless to say, this Khan knows how to create his own set of rules.
