If there are two Khans who are not warring in Bollywood, they are Salman and Aamir. In fact, so thick are they that Salman, 46, made up for his good friend’s absence at a cricket match organised by the latter’s son, Junaid, in Mumbai on Tuesday.

Junaid had organised a fund-raiser Twenty20
‘Junoon’ celebrity cricket match at the Brabourne Stadium between Bollywood stars and physically-challenged participants. But Aamir, 47, skipped the event as he had to attend to some work related to his TV show, Satyameva Jayate. “I had asked dad when he would be free for this match and he gave me May 1 as the date. But he got some work and hence could not make it here ... it’s okay,” said Junaid.
The Dabangg star, however, stepped in to support Junaid, accompanied by a whole star army. “Aamir has a show coming up ...,” said Salman, explaining Aamir’s busy schedule and seeming excited about his TV debut. Other actors present on field were Salman’s brothers Arbaaz and Sohail, Rani Mukerji, Isha Koppikhar, Prateik, Sharman Joshi and Atul Kulkarni.
