Katrina Kaif may have gone on record saying that her ex-boyfriend Salman Khan is her best friend but seems like Sallu is in no mood to reciprocate. If the buzz in tinsel town is to be believed, Salman Khan has opted out of the closing ceremony of the 34th National Games because he does not want to share the same stage as Kat.
Sallu, who is currently shooting for Ready in Bangkok, sent a word to the organisers that he would not be available at the closing ceremony.
Salman's ex-flame Katrina Kaif and friend German model Claudia Ciesla will perform at the same show.
Confirming that the actor will not make it to the show, a source told Mumbai Mirror, "Sallu may have not wanted to share the stage with Katrina."
Katrina confirmed her participation but denied that anyone else was performing with her.
"Yes, I am performing, as it was decided two months ago. I was always going to do it. Nobody else was."
However, Claudia said rather diplomatically, "Salman was supposed to come. And I know that he is not coming now. But I really don't know why he backed out."
Wonder if Claudia's appearance on Shah Rukh Khan's Zor Ka Jhatka has anything to do with Salman backing out?
