It is very difficult to decide the status of Shah Rukh Khan and Salman Khan’s relationship.Are they friends pretending to be hostile to one another for reasons best known to them?
After their recent display of camaraderie on Shah Rukh’s birthday the entertainment industry is even more divided on whether the two are friends or not. On 2 November when Shah Rukh turned a year older, Salman Khan posted a video with his Dabangg team singing ‘Happy Birthday’ and doing SRK’s signature move in a warm gesture of kinship.
The film industry is even more confused.
Shah Rukh and Salman have always projected a love-hate relationship .For reasons unknown, Aishwara Rai Bachchan has been a constant bone of contention between them. Apparently when Salman was seeing Aishwarya, Shah Rukh not only disapproved of the relationship he encouraged Aishwarya to break away from the allegedly abusive relationship.
Salman never forgave SRK for his alleged hand in his breakup with Aishwarya. After the breakup Aishwarya was shooting with SRK for Aziz Mirza’s Chalte Chalte when Salman stormed to the set and disrupted the shooting. Because of this incident Aishwarya was replaced by Rani Mukherjee in Chalte Chalte.
This was the time when the SRK-Salman relationship hit the lowest patch .Since then theirs has been an of-and-on tuning. Mutual friends have tried to sort out their mutual differences. But Salman and Shah Rukh are far too formidable in their own right to meet on a middleground.
