Salman vs Arijit to Harshvardhan vs Diljit: Bollywood fights don’t last forever
Be it the tiff between Arijit Singh and Salman Khan or Harshvardhan Kapoor’s Twitter outburst against Diljit Dosanjh, the new trend in Bollywood is to bury the hatchet and let things go.bollywood Updated: Feb 08, 2017 07:33 IST
Long gone are the days when the clashes between celebrities would stretch for years.Many celebrities have kept their issues aside and buried the hatchet publically.
The tiff between singer and Arijit Singh and Salman Khan started when the former wrote a long public post stating how his song was removed from Khan’s film Sultan and replaced by another song. In the post, which was later deleted, Singh apologised to Khan for upsetting him earlier at an award function and requested to keep his track.
However, later, Singh also gestured a sorry towards Khan at a recent award function and Khan responded by smiling and nodding at him.
However, the Singh, who reportedly later apologized to Khan at an award function, said, “No regrets. I have no shame in saying that I wanted that song in Sultan. I knew some would misunderstand my Facebook apology. But it doesn’t matter. For me, the song is important. And my relation with Salman sir is important. He has to forgive me some day. I didn’t mean to insult him.”
In addition to this camaraderie, even actors Hrithik Roshan and Shah Rukh Khan wished each other the best when their films were going to clash at the box office last month. Rakesh Roshan had expressed his displeasure towards the makers of Raees for releasing their film on the same day as his.
In a tweet to Khan, Roshan wrote, “Dear @iamsrk today as a mentor Im sure u will inspire me yet again with #Raaes and as a student I hope you are proud of me with #Kaabil.”
In response to this tweet, Khan replied, “@iHrithik wish could have avoided overlap of releases. That said…my love to u & @yamigautam dad & @_SanjayGupta. Kaabil wil b awesome.”
The cool wave is not just between the veterans of the industry, even newcomer Harshvardhan Kapoor, who sent out a series of tweets against unfair judgment of actor Diljit Dosanjh winning best debutant award at an award night, publically apologized. He complained that while Mirziyan was his maiden film in Bollywood, Dosanjh, who won the award for Udta Punjab, was already an established actor in Punjab film industry.
After losing out of Dosanjh, Kapoor said in an interview, “Although I picked up two debutant awards earlier, I was really looking forward to winning the black lady. But I guess every awards event has its own parameters. I’ll be honest, though. I think a debutant award is meant for someone working on his first film. It shouldn’t go to an actor who has worked in several films in another industry or language.”
However, he later apologized to Dosanjh on Twitter and posted, “Love you to sir, have lots of respect for you and your body of work sorry if I said anything that came out wrong @diljitdosanjh@AnilKapoor”
