Bad days have indeed hit Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif. Days after rumours of their split comes some thing much uglier. The webworld is flooded with a fake sex video featuring look-alikes of Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif. The video, possibly made on a cell-phone originated in Canada, but it took no time for it to spread all over the world. Report say that now an MMS clip of the video is also doing the rounds. Due to the uncanny resemblance of the people in the video to Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif, the video was being pitched as an authentic one for quite a while, till some people watched it closely and figured out it was not actually the two Bollywood stars, but look-alikes. Salman and Katrina Kaif have maintained a dignified silence over the issue and have decided to let it die its own death.
