The ice between Salman Khan’s family and the Bachchans is rapidly thawing. We recently had Aishwaryacommenting positively on a public platform about Salman being selected as India’s brand ambassador to the Rio Olympics.
Further thawing in relations between the two families was evidenced on Monday when Salman’s father Salim Khan made the effort to see the new Aishwarya starrer Sarbjit at a private screening.
Says a source, “The makers were not very sure of how Salim Saab would react to an invitation to watchSarbjit.He is known to avoid watching her fans. But when the Sarbjit producers asked Salim Saab he readily agreed to watch the film and liked the film.”
The Khan family has an added reason to be interested in the story as Salman Khan had campaigned to free the real Sarbjit Singh from captivity in Pakistan.
Says director Omung Kumar, “I wasn’t there when Salim Saab saw Sarbjit. But he spoke to my producer. I believe he loved the film.”
