This could be the biggest scoop of the year! News is that tension is brewing  between living legend Amitabh Bachchan and Bollywood Badshah King Khan.

The controversy between the strenuous relations between Big B and Shahrukh Khan has now turned to lovey-dovey family relations between the two. Both superstars have refuted allegations of their troubled relations by expressing bond of love between them.

But what's the truth? Are they just pretending to be friends? The two acting giants of Bollywood give their side of the story...

According to Shahrukh, his children are very fond of Abhishek while Amitabh Bachchan says that Jaya is equally fond of Shahrukh.

Shahrukh puts it this way: "It's complete rubbish to say I have bad relations with Bachchanji. Some people even went to the extent of saying that I am upset with them because Yash Raj films have replaced me for Abhishek in one of the films. I want to prove false all these rumours by telling everyone that we are having very cordial relations and my children are very fond of Abhishek Bachchan. They like his movies very much and have great regard for him. These are very useless things to spread about us. People who don't have any work just spread all this rubbish."

On being asked what could be the reason for his replacement with Abhishek Bachchan, he explains, "I have no idea because I only came to know about it through newspaper reports. But I have no grudge against Abhishek. After all we are in the industry for so long and these things keep happening here. Terming it as a reason for souring relations between us is unfair. I have great regard for Amitabh Bachchanji and his family."

On the other hand, Big B too has refuted such news as baseless saying, "Shahrukh is a member of our family and even Jaya doesn't discriminate between Abhishek and him. People have spoken rubbish things about him that he didn't appear for the IIFA awards in Dubai only because of tense and bad relations with me. It is plain rubbish."

It seems Shah Rukh and Amitabh are trying hard to come clean on their relationship. Now, whether the cold war is actually over, only time will tell!
