A few days ago, they met at an iftar party and hugged. But the two Khans — Shah Rukh and Salman — may not have imagined that their momentary act of affection will make big news.
Although neither of them have talked about it, the third big Khan, Aamir, has expressed his happiness over the much-publicised hug.
At the premiere of Issaq, held in Mumbai on July 25, Aamir said, “Jab dosti hoti hai, aur log gale milte hai to acchi baat hai. Mujhe bahut khushi hoti hai. Aur mujhe badi khushi hai (when friendships are struck and people hug each other, it’s a good thing. It makes me very happy. I am very pleased (about the hug).”
Not many know that Aamir was also present at Katrina Kaif’s birthday party in 2008 when SRK and Salman had the infamous brawl.
Aamir and Shah Rukh, who also made it to the premiere, missed meeting each other.
“Shah Rukh turned up at around 12.45 in the morning but Aamir had left by then. Aamir came in at around 10.30 pm,” says an insider.
Interestingly though, the makers of Issaq started the film all over again for SRK at one of the screens. “By then, almost all the screenings were over but they played it again especially for him,” adds the insider.
