We recently saw Salman Khan in a very jovial mood at the launch of Bigg Boss 7. During the event, Salman Khan had made a statement that Shahrukh Khan is more than welcome to promote his films on the show and we all wondered how Shahrukh will react to this invitation. Well, we now have a response from the Badshah of Bollywood.
SRK reacted to this invite pretty quickly and said that he will definitely promote his movie on the reality show Bigg Boss. However, he also mentioned that Salman will have to wait longer for this to happen. This is because SRK's next venture Happy New Year is still being filmed and will hit the theatres only in 2014. So it's possible that we may see SRK in the next season of Bigg Boss. Happy New Year which is a Farah Khan movie which also stars Deepika Padukone and Abhishek Bachchan went on the floors recently in Dubai.
The two superstars of Bollywood -SRK and Sallu were earlier known as arch rivals but at an iftar party this year, we saw them patch up with a hug. At the launch of Bigg Boss 7, we caught Sallu talking a little more about SRK. He acknowledged the box office record set by Shahrukh's Chennai Express. He also mentioned that he does not hold any personal enmity but the battle with SRK is now only at the box office.
On the other side, Shahrukh too said that all is well between the two actors. He said that there are no issues between Salman and him, and that people shouldn't create them either.
Have a look at the slide show for interesting details and images of SRK and Sallu.
Before this big Bollywood fight, the it was even said that Salman Khan considered Shahrukh Khan as his brother.
The two actors have acted together in the 1995 movie titled Karan Arjun. In this, the two played the roles of brothers. This was a blockbuster film.
Baazigar's First Choice: Salman
Did you know that Salman Khan was first offered the lead role in the 1993 film Baazigar before it was given to Shahrukh Khan. This big hit movie made SRK a superstar.
Enemies For Long
These two actors who have the biggest fan following in India and outside were rivals for more than five years.
When Shahrukh and Salman Hugged at an Iftar party recently, this was one of the biggest news in the country. The internet and newspaper dailies were buzzing with these pictures.
Being Human Act
Sallu recently told us why he hugged SRK this Eid season. "I hugged Shahrukh during Ramadan because it was a pious month and it's not only me who should show such gestures to friends but all should do that. It's a being human act," explained Salman.
