Salman Khan intervened to stop disruption of Katrina Kaif's shoot for a deodorant commercial at Mehboob Studios in Mumbai.
Members of FWICE (Federation of Western India Cine Employees) stopped the shoot because Katrina hasn't signed on as federation member; the busy star hasn't had the time to complete the registration formalities.
The disruption left Katrina visibly upset; word about the incident quickly traveled to Salman Khan who intervened on her behalf.
Salman spoke to federation members and assured them that Katrina would complete the registration process, and they allowed the shoot to continue.
Dinesh Chaturvedi, President-FWICE says, "We didn't halt the shoot, but we wanted to know why Katrina still isn't a member of our organization. I understand she has a busy schedule, but it doesn't take that long to finish the formalities. Every one from Amitabh Bachchan to Shah Rukh Khan has registered with us."
Acknowledging Salman's intervention, Chaturvedi said:
"I did get a call from Salmanbhai saying that the needful will be done. I am speaking only for the benefit of the actors who aren't registered. Since Katrina is the only big star who doesn't have the card, we wanted to know how we could help her out."
According to Chaturvedi, registration costs just Rs 600, but comes with an insurance of Rs 2 lakh with coverage that extends to shoots outside the country.
