Father Salim Khan opens up about Salman-SRK's make-up


While the media has been buzzing with the news of patch up between the two superstars of Bollywood, Shah Rukh Khan and Salman Khan, Slim Khan – the father of Salman refuses to give it much importance. He said that their differences were blown out of proportion and now the media frenzy is attaching undue importance to the patch up. This does not solve the national problems and should not be given much weightage.

Shah Rukh and Salman patched up their long standing differences with a hug and a hand shake on the iftaar party on Sunday evening. Salim says that he is proud that his son had made the first move. “I am happy that my son has taken the initiative. It was a sensible thing to do and a much-needed gesture and Shah Rukh reciprocated.” However, Salim is not willing to speculate why the patch up occurred. “They both are self-respecting people. They must have decided to put aside their ego instead of thinking about what hurt them. Maybe they felt foolish behaving in a childish manner and instead decided to behave like mature adults on that day. Media should be talking on much more important issues than this,” he said.

Even before this famed make up, Shah Rukh had always been respectful to senior Khan and had cordial relations with his other children.

However, Khan feels that the media is focusing needless attention on this issue.  “Please don’t give so much importance to it. There are disagreements between miyaan-biwi, neighbours, society and so many other individuals. They (Salman and Shah Rukh) are actors and rivals. Inke problems hote hain aur solve bhi ho jaate hain. I have always maintained that there can never be any love between any two big stars, only courtesy. It is not possible for big stars to love each other. Even stars like Raj Kapoor, Dev Anand and Dilip Kumar were just courteous to each other. Salman and Shah Rukh must have decided to be mature and courteous and that is something that must be maintained.”

“Just because they patched up it’s not as if the country’s problems will get solved, no? They hugged each other lekin isse Uttarakhand mein jo ho raha hai, ya Kashmir mein, those problems won’t get solved. Kaande ka bhav toh nahi girega na? The disagreements between stars are not national problems as the media is making it out to be,” said Khan.
