They haven’t come face-to-face since their infamous 2008 fight and have always managed to avoid bumping into each other at parties. This time too, the two warring Khans - Shah Rukh and Salman - have avoided a meeting at Esha Deol’s wedding.
While Salman is shooting for Dabangg 2 in the city and will most likely be attending the wedding and reception, SRK is in London shooting for Yash Chopra’s next.
Shah Rukh is expected to wrap up the shooting of Chopra's film by the end of June. However, it looks like SRK won't make it for Esha’s wedding as he has extended his London trip. While chatting with one-time co-star Juhi Chawla on a radio show in London on June 20, SRK revealed that the shoot would wrap up in about 10 days. “And then, I am here (in London) for another 10-15 days with Aryan, Suhana and Gauri,” he told Juhi.
An industry insider adds, “Since the shooting schedule is ending just before the wedding reception on June 30, it would be difficult for SRK, whose entire family is in London with him, to dash off immediately for the ceremony.”

Esha’s mother, Hema Malini, is also not sure if SRK will be able to make it. “I am not aware if he is coming. As far as I know, he is shooting abroad, but I don’t know what his plans are,” says the yesteryear actor. Esha’s sangeet ceremony took place on Monday and will be followed by the mehendi on Wednesday, with a traditional temple wedding on Friday. The Deols are believed to be planning an extravagant wedding reception at a suburban hotel the next day, and have invited all their friends and family.
