They’ve had some fierce disagreements in the past, mainly due to their differences of opinion on an actress(now happily married) whom Salman was dating at one time. And although they have been heard and seen blowing hot and cold in public over various issues in recent times, the fact is Shah Rukh considers Salman a very close friend.
“And their bonding has been further cemented by Salman’s unconditional support to Shah Rukh and his wife Gauri at this time when the couple is going through the worst crisis of his life,” a close friend of the couple tells me.
Salman has been seen at SRK’s residence(they live very close to one another) more than once since Aryan’s arrest. Salman’s father Salim Khan has also paid Shah Rukh and his wife a visit and has offered them advise and emotional support.
The other Khan superstar, Aamir has been conspicuous by his absence from Mannat. Considering he is known to stand by friends(he was recently seen standing on stage in support of Nagarjuna’s son Naga Chaitanya) Aamir’s abstinence from any active support appears incongruous.
Or maybe it’s just political correctness.
