Salman Khan has refused to do a promotional tour of small towns for Ek Tha Tiger.
The romantic thriller sees Khan starring opposite his ex-girlfriend Katrina Kaif.
He told The Times of India: "It's not about crowd control. There are women and kids and in their excitement, the men try to take advantage of the fact that there are women in the crowd.
"Then there are kids and senior citizens who are pushed around. God forbid, if something happens, it comes onto us.
"If someone gets injured, that's okay, but God forbid if someone dies in these mishaps, then the responsibility falls on us. Then if our security guard pushes someone to protect us, then that also becomes a big issue. So it's better to stay away from all this."
