Actors Sanjay Dutt and Salman Khan are locked in a cold war, which has been escalated after Salman raised an objection to Ranbir Kapoor playing Sanjay Dutt in Raju Hirani’s biopic. Now, mutual friends of the two actors are worried about the situation.
“They are very similar individuals and therefore get hurt by the same things. We all thought the cold war would calm down after some time. But neither Bhai (Salman) nor Baba (Sanjay) is willing to budge. Basically, Bhai wants anyone but Ranbir to play Sanjay. But Baba adores Ranbir and won’t change his mind,” says a common friend.
For those who came in late, Salman’s aversion to all things Ranbir are traceable to his behaviour with Salman’s ex-girlfriend (and now Ranbir’s ex as well) Katrina Kaif. Matters have gotten so messy between the two that they refuse to be seen together at any public event.
Says a friend, “If Salman comes to know that Sanjay is attending an event he refuses to attend, and vice versa.” Mutual friends are now trying to work out a patch-up between the two warring stars. Says the friend, “Salman needs to understand that Sanjay won’t change his mind about Ranbir playing him.”
