In September 2013, actors Sara Khan and Pratyusha Banerjee, who had been close friends for a while, had a fallout over the latter’s ex-boyfriend, Makrand Malhotra.

Since then, the two had made their fight public — ignoring each other at events, and making startling comments. And now, in the latest twist to that saga, the two have patched up.

Sara says, "Yes, we have patched up. I had texted our common friend Kamya (Punjabi) about it and that got the ball rolling. Pratyusha called me the next day and we talked about all the issues that were bothering and hurting us. Though Kamya was the catalyst, she wasn’t the only reason. Once we met, both of us felt that we were being childish. We have now matured and, since we missed each other a lot, this patch-up came about naturally."

Sara goes on to add that the old friends have now cleared all their misunderstandings.

"We told each other about everything we had said. It’s all water under the bridge now. We were the best of friends for years (before the fight)," says Sara, adding, "We won’t let a third person create a rift between us now. We have seen so many ups and downs together and I’ve even guided her about issues related to the industry. I used t treat her like a baby."
