The IIFA press conference in Madrid, Spain, was a star-studded affair, as Salman Khan, Priyanka Chopra, Deepika Padukone, Shahid Kapoor, Sonakshi Sinha and Farhan Akhtar took the stage. Salman, who is known to pull his friends' legs often, decided to take a dig at Deepika and Priyanka.

Here's what happened. The trailer of Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra's film Mirzyan, starring Harshvardhan Kapoor and Saiyami Kher, was also launched at the event. But Salman missed it as he came in a little. The star requested that the promo be shown once again so he can watch it too. Salman told his colleagues on stage to get down if they wanted to see it. While the other's slowly left the stage, Deepika walked over to Priyanka and the two actors, who were meeting after a long time, began chatting. Finally, Deepika and Priyanka were the only ones left on stage.

This is when Salman mocked them. "Look at those Hollywood returns. These two have gone abroad and forgotten about the Indian film industry," he said. Surely, Deepika and Priyanka are aware of Salman's sense of humour, as they were seen smiling their way down the stage.
