0nce Salman Khan has a problem with someone, it is unlikely to get sorted out in a hurry. The latest is his cold war with John Abraham, which began during the Rock Stars shows in July this year.

At every event the two attended, from the music launches of Baabul and Salaam-E-Ishq to the premiere of the former, the icy vibes between the two have been palpable.

And they seem to have taken the climate to GIFA (Global Indian Film Awards) in Malaysia too.

The three-day event includes a soccer match between celebrities and Malaysian ministers. Known to be a football fan, John was expected to participate but once he learnt that Salman was part of the team, he bowed out, just as the match was about to start.

According to a source from the organisers’ team, “John did not want to play with Salman. He said it would be uncomfortable and the best way to avoid any unpleasantness was to not taking part in the game.”

The celebrities drew the match 2-2 with Salman and Arjun Rampal scoring a goal each.

Guess John will have to wait for his film Goal to show his prowess at football.
