At a public event recently Salman Khan shouted out Ranveer Singh’s name alongside Shah Rukh, Aamir, Akshay and, ahem,Salman as the stars most copied by newcomers.
While the veracity of the above statement is debatable(do Varun Dhawan or Ranbir Kapoor copy any of the above?) what can be said most confidently about the above selection of superstars by the ultimate superstar, is that Ranveer Singh’s inclusion in the list was no coincidence but a sign of Salman’s thawing and moving towards a rapprochement with Deepika Padukone.
For some baffling reason Salman and Deepika have been warring albeit subtly for years, refusing to work together probably because Salman thinks Deepika shares a close bonding with Shah Rukh Khan.
The equation between Salman and Deepika is about to change.And the one bringing about that change is a mutual friend Sanjay Leela Bhansali who is close to both the stars and would like nothing better than to see them come together.
Watch this space for further developments.
