The actor was speaking after scenes taken from new release Cocktail were presented as real life events.
Khan told BollySpice: "The press in India can be quite funny sometimes. They made the end climax scene look like Deepika [Padukone] and me are just saying hello to each other quite warmly on set which is a bit naughty because it's a shot from the movie."
The star explained: "They made it look like 'Saif sees Deepika after a long time'. I guess you are bending the truth to try and add spice to your newspaper. As a result, it should not be taken too seriously."
Although primarily shot in the UK, the two actors filmed concluding scenes of their new film in Delhi.
Khan also revealed that audiences prefer to see him in romantic comedies over action roles.
"Everybody has a type that suits them and I think this is probably mine rather than Agent Vinod," he said.
The love triangle picture, which features debutante Diana Penty, is out now on general release.
