Our sources say that Dutt had apparently put a condition that if his co-star Vivek Oberoi came, he wouldn’t.
Though the senior actor was away from the country on a short vacation, those close to him were aware of the real reason why he didn’t attend the event.
A source states, “Dutt treats Vivek as a younger brother but his closeness to Salman at times becomes an issue for VO. This time Dutt chose Salman over Vivek.”
