Salman hugs Abhishek, ignores Vivek Oberoi


Through all the ups and downs in his life, Salman Khan seemed to be a wiser man and certainly on a forgiving spree as was blatantly seen in his attitude during a recent award show. After ugliness years back that had come between his relationship with his colleagues, Shah Rukh Khan and Abhishek Bachchan, he seemed to focus on mending the differences. One person on his list still seemed to be not forgiven, Vivek Oberoi.

Salman, who was hosting the award show was a major success as he kept the audience engaged and amused with his stage performance and antics. He hugged Shah Rukh Khan and Abhishek Bachchan, which was appreciated as him trying to patch things up. But when Vivek Oberoi went on stage to collect an award, Salman’s serious expression was noted by all and sundry.

According to a tabloid, Salman ignored Vivek’s presence as he went onstage to receive the award. One can speculate that the ‘Dabanng’ actor was reminded of the time when Vivek Oberoi had called a press conference in which he claimed to be harassed by Salman, along with his then girlfriend, Aishwarya Rai. The press con had a serious effect on Salman’s career as no one wanted to work with him for a period of time.  It was during the same conference that Vivek had confessed to dating Aishwarya and contemplating marriage.

Salman, at a point of time had many enemies in Bollywood due to his brash behaviour and two of the actors he had irked were ShahRukh Khan and Abhishek Bachchan. Shah Rukh Khan had to throw him out of the sets of the film, ‘Chalte Chalte’ after he broke in and harassed Aishwarya Rai. Aishwarya, following this, was replaced with Rani as the female lead of the film. Aishwarya later married abhishek Bachchan who incurred Salman’s wrath. His attitude towards Aishwarya post- breakup has been the source of many of his skirmishes.

Soon after, the couple, Vivek and Aishwarya, had broken up, after which the ‘Krrish 3’ actor had tried many times to apologize for the incident, but to no avail. He even apologized at public events. Salman Khan never acknowledged the apologies and the wound still seems fresh as was seen by his attitude towards Vivek Oberoi during the awards function. He sure seems to be in no mood to bury the hatchet and move on, when it comes to Vivek Oberoi.
