The full History behind Shahrukh-Salman enmity

We are all aware of the enmity that exists between two leading superstars of Bollywood, Shahrukh Khan and Salman Khan. The truth is once upon a time, the two Khans were like brothers. They were the best buddies in Bollywood industry. They did a number of films together like Karan Arjun, Kuch Kuch Hota Hain etc. So how did these two become each others arch rivals? When did this all start? Here it is.

The day was the 17th of July 2008, and also Katrina Kaif’s birthday. At that point Katrina happened to be Salman’s girlfriend. The two got into a very serious and heated verbal conversation when Shahrukh Khan happened to remark about Salman’s ex, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan. Things got serious when the situation turned ugly. The snide remark about Salman’s ex-girlfriend had angered him to a great extent. Things got ugly when the news came out in open. The media went berserk on the news, and this news was shown on every single television channel. When the fight between the two was at its peak, the ladies, Gauri and Katrina came between them to calm things down. However, although they calmed down, the deed was down. The friendship that existed between the two was broken, and probably would never be mended.

Sources also say that Salman had asked Shahrukh to do a guest role in his film Main aur Mrs. Khanna, which had been declined by Shahrukh. This too had offended the actor to a great extenet as he had expected that being a friend Shahrukh would agree to do the role. After the brawl between the two, several assumptions started cropping up. Since the entire thing happened at a party, people commented that both the actors were probably high, and whatever happened was the effect of alcohol. Many people also say that Salman had started irritating Shahrukh about the reality shows that the two were doing at that time. Salman started bugging Shahrukh about his show, Dus Ka Dum, being more popular than Shahrukh’s show, Kya Aap Paanchvi Pass Se Tez Hain?

All we can see is that, no matter what has happened, the two did not come together ever again. Although Shahrukh has publicly apologized to Salman in a show, Koffee with Karan, the entire act was seen as a TRP rising act by Salman. The war is right now in the open; everybody in India and even outside India knows about it. We all hope that a day will arrive when the two will be seen together again like the old times.
