Shahrukh ends his war against Manoj Kumar
Shahrukh Khan ends his war against veteran actor Manoj Kumar and made friendship with him. Last year the air was much tensed when Manoj accused Shahrukh and Farah Khan of humiliating him in the film Om Shanti Om. He even filed case against them asking them to delete the scene. King Khan finally called the war end by visiting Manoj’s residence and spending nearly four hours with him, he enquired him about his health, chatted with his grandchildren and enquire about his ail mother-in-law who used to be a very good friend of SRK’s late mother.
Says Manoj about SRK's visit, "Look, there wasn't ever an epic war between us that we wouldn't meet again. He made a mistake and apologized for it. My 94-year-old mother-in-law had to be recently operated upon, and Shahrukh wanted to meet her. My mother-in-law used to make khakras for Gandhiji. She is a former MP from Congress and Shahrukh's mother was a social worker, that's how they met."
Manoj continues, "Shahrukh asked me why I was not making films anymore. I asked him what his problem was if I don't make any and just rest at home. We joked about it. It was nice to meet him, I hardly interact with present day stars. I've just spoken to Aamir Khan over phone. And imagine, I haven't met Salman since the last 19 years, despite his father, Salim Khan, being one of my closest friends."
