Salman Khan strong-arms Shah Rukh Khan on his birthday
Salman Khan and Shah Rukh Khan are the best of buddies and we have pictures to prove it. To celebrate Shah Rukh Khan’s 50th birthday, Salman not only wished him and paid him a late night visit, he also made a wrestler out of him. The Dabangg star is playing a wrestler in his forthcoming film, Sultan, and taught a few moves to SRK on the occasion.
Shah Rukh Khan shared pictures from their love-filled meeting on Twitter and wrote, “Bhai teaching me the moves for Sultan on my birthday.” The picture reminds us of Sooraj Kab Door Gagan Se from SRK-Salman-starrer Karan Arjun. Sultan and Shah Rukh Khan’s Raees are heading for a box office clash as both films are slated to hit theatres on Eid 2016.
SRK also shared another image with the caption, Prem Ratan Dhan Payo. Earlier in the day, Salman had said, “I wish him the best in life. I wish him good health, family and success and most amazing life. I would want the whole family to be healthy. I wish that for everyone. We are friends. Shah Rukh Khan came much later in the industry. First Aamir Khan, then I came... Ajay Devgn, Akshay Kumar and then Shah Rukh Khan.”
Bollywood’s biggest stars were defined by their ongoing cold war till sometime back. A rift that started between Salman and Shah Rukh a few years back made for media fodder and constant heartache for their fans. But the past is in the past.
Of late, the duo has not only displayed tolerance and maturity but also a new level of friendship. From hugging each other at Iftaar parties to attending family events and promoting each other’s films, the Khans have come a long way.
