King Khan's friends turn a blind eye to him
While Abhishek Bachchan greets him like a long lost buddy, Arjun Rampal and Hrithik Roshan leave a party as soon as SRK arrives
The party on Monday night that photographer Dabboo Ratnani hosted to launch his new calendar revealed a lot more than what his pictures did; that's probably why this may be tagged as one of the hottest parties of the season.

Stars kept pouring in, while some walked out without much notice. Surprisingly, Shah Rukh Khan came in at 10.05 pm (generally his standard time of arrival at a party is 1 am). Interestingly, as soon as King Khan arrived, his close pals Arjun Rampal and Hrithik Roshan (with their respective wives) left the venue in a hurry.
An eyewitness says, "When Shah Rukh entered Olive (where the party was being held), we saw Arjun leave just then. They did not greet each other.
Hrithik did the same. He was getting some pictures shot outside the gallery area and left the minute SRK came."
Incidentally, when SRK, Hrithik and Arjun were all in Dubai for New Year, they apparently spent time separately with their respective spouses. Unlike earlier times when the star wives spent time together shopping and dining.
However at the party, SRK wasn't falling short of friends, as Abhishek Bachchan was seen bonding big time with him. Adds the source, "They spoke for a very long time, and it was clear that they brushed their past differences aside.
In fact, Shah Rukh asked Abhishek to come and meet him at Yashraj where he is currently shooting with Katrina Kaif." We wonder what this meeting's going to be about? Or probably SRK is simply in the mood to make new friends.
