Salman Khan is known to be large-hearted, but when it comes to old rival Vivek Oberoi, he does not believe in the 'forgive and forget' theory. At least that is what we heard from those present at Bandra's Mehboob Studios on Monday evening.

Sources say Salman was in studio no 5 for a press conference while director Indra Kumar was shooting for his next, 'Great Grand Masti' with Vivek Oberoi, Riteish Deshmukh and Aftab Shivdasani in the vicinity. "Post the media interaction, Salman caught up with Kumar, who took him to the vanity van where all the lead actors of his film were present. He walked in, saw Vivek and immediately exited the van," an onlooker says.
Kumar then apparently followed Salman out along with Riteish, Aftab and lead actress Urvashi Rautela. "The four of them exchanged pleasantries and chatted for a brief while even as Vivek stayed put in the van. Clearly, there's no love lost between them," adds the source.

While Salman and Vivek remained unavailable for comment, a source close to the 'Bajrangi Bhaijaan' star confirms that he met Inder Kumar and says, "But it is not compulsory for all actors to meet each other when they are shooting in the same location; everyone was there for work."
Salman Khan and Vivek Oberoi's rivalry is over a decade old. It started after the latter called for a press conference at his residence against the former. In the last couple of years, Vivek has tried apologising to Salman on a few occasions, but has always been snubbed.
