They are not arch rivals anymore. Atleast not for the public eye. Shah Rukh Khan and Salman, who were once one of the most famous rivals in Bollywood have recently been praising each other a lot. In a step ahead in the same direction, SRK thanked Salman Khan for promoting his film Happy New Year on TV show Bigg Boss saying it proves that there are no issues between the duo.
"I think it's extremely gracious of him to have done that. I thank him from the bottom of my heart because it also takes away from the fact that when people talk about issues between actors (it proves that) we don't have any issues," Shah Rukh said.
In Kolkata to promote his latest release Happy New Year, the 48-year-old actor said wherever there is a platform they talk about each other's work and promote it in the way possible.

On last weekend's episode of Bigg Boss, Salman had promoted the film by doing a small gig for SRK and he had even tweeted about the movie.
Happy New Year director Farah Khan said Salman has always been their friend. "He has been very encouraging and he loves the madness of our movies," she said.
The two superstars, who had a public fall out in 2008, are now seen to be sharing positive vibes and even greeting each other at parties.
