"Both have hugged each other and have sent a message across the nation that there are differences, but it's not like that we cannot overcome them," said Bhatt Monday on the sidelines of a press conference of Ajay Bahl's film "B.A. Pass" here.
"In the pious month of Ramzan, in which people forget their mutual differences and talk about peace and harmony, it was inevitable that at an Iftaar party people would meet and won't hug each other."
Bhatt even congratulated the two.
"I congratulate both of them. They have created a very positive environment in the country," said the filmmaker who directed SRK in "Duplicate".
Salman and Shah Rukh were not on talking terms post a fight at Katrina Kaif's birthday bash in 2008.
