Shah Rukh Khan and Amitabh Bachchan’s recent statements on their micro-blogging sites hinted of a possible reconciliation between arch-rivals SRK and Salman Khan, but the fact remains that Sallu apparently showed no interest of a patch up.
An eyewitness at the premiere of the late Yash Chopra’s film Jab Tak Hai Jaan says, “It was Aamir Khan who decided that it was about time the biggest rivalry of all time should come to an end. While SRK and Salman did cross paths and remained cordial to each other, Aamir felt it would be an ideal opportunity to patch up. However Salman was in no mood and avoided any interaction with King Khan.”
The eyewitness adds, “Salman on the other hand appeared to be being extremely friendly with Amitabh Bachchan. He was seen chatting and joking with the Big B. Salman was seen as the epitome of respect towards Mr Bachchan and even accompanied him till the door when Big B was leaving.”
This comes close on the heels of Rohit Shetty’s sister Mahek’s wedding on Sunday when Sallu was seen bonding with Abhishek Bachchan.” The source adds, “While one imagines that the patch up was on the cards, the industry will have to wait for some more time to see the arch-rivals rub shoulders again.” May be Sallu wants to let bygones be bygones with the Bachchans first. SRK comes next perhaps?
