Salman and Shahrukh Khan are rivals, courtesy Salim Khan

Salman Khan’s father Salim Khan clearly mentioned that his son Salman Khan and Shahrukh Khan are rivals and there cannot be any love between the two rivals.

"They are two individuals... Grown up people. I think there cannot be love between rivals. There can be courtesy. To have love between Salman and Shah Rukh is not possible. One should not expect that if Shah Rukh's film is a success then Salman will dance and celebrate. Or if Salman's film is a hit so Shah Rukh will throw a party... Its not possible," he said at the trailer launch of 'Sholay' in 3D, here.

Salim Khan cited the example of veteran stars like Raj Kapoor, Dev Anand and Dilip Kumar were just well-mannered to each other.

"Today people are intolerant, impatient... small things hurt people, there are other people to create further problem. There should be courtesy between two rivals," Salim said.

Salman Khan and Shahrukh Khan hugged each other at Baba Siddiqui’s Iftar party last and it sparked the rumor that both the Khans ended up their long standing rivalry and they have patched up. But in actuality, enmity between the two Khans still exists and there is no room of any friendship between the two.

Salman and Shahrukh had a fall out in 2008 during Katrina Kaif's birthday party when both indulged in a heated argument. Salman and Shahrukh were friends turned foes, they shared screen space in 'Karan Arjun, 'Kuch Kuch Hota Hai' and 'Hum Tumhare Hai Sanam'.

In the latest interview, Shahrukh Khan said that he has no any ego issue and he is all ready to work with Salman again. "The producers and directors should come up with a good script ....Inshallah if there is a chance we will work together. If it happens good, and if it doesn't, then also it is ok," Shah Rukh said, when asked if there is a possibility to see both the Khans together in a film.

"We don't have angst against each other. It is just that hamare raaste alag hai! (we follow different paths). We have no ego issues between us. We both respect each other and our families," he added.
