Hell hath no fury like a Salman Khan scorned. The art of diplomacy is not what Sallu Bhai has mastered and unlike most Bollywood stars the actor is not afraid to speak his minds. In a recent interview, Salman admitted that he had a fight with King Khan aka Shahrukh Khan and here are some excerpts from the interview:
But you do know how to throw the most talked about party?
It was Katrina Kaif’s party. Maybe it’ll be talked about for decades to come but definitely not by me. I’m not going to speak about it.
But was there a fight with Shahrukh Khan?
What led to the fight?
Have you ever known me to speak about anybody? Whatever happened is between me and Shahrukh. It’s personal.
Is Shahrukh your friend?
Not anymore. I’m not going to deny that there are issues between us. I’m a primitive man born in today’s time. I can’t fake anything. If there is a problem then I’m not going to deny it. We’ve had problems before also but this time I don’t think we can sort them out. We are two different people. Our values and way of thinking are different. I don’t think we can be friends. I think it’s better to declare that then put on a fake faÇade of being friends and back-biting each other.
But there is a lot of shared history between you and SRK, didn’t he stay at your house in his struggling days?
(Smiles) Yeah but I’ve only been to his house twice in my life. The first time I went on my own and the second time was when he came and took me to his house for a chat.
The buzz is that professional rivalry between the two of us especially with regards, your respective shows, Kya Aap Paanchvi Paas Se Tez Hain and 10 Ka Dum, led to the fight?
No, I don’t think it’s because my show is doing better. I don’t think he’s that insecure. The reason of the fight is personal.
Is it because he refused to act in your home production, Main Aur Mrs Khanna?
Let me make it clear once and for all that Main Aur Mrs Khanna was never offered to SRK. I was always doing the film. It’s just that when Shah Rukh used to come to my home to ask me to appear on Kaun Banega Crorepati and Om Shanti Om, I just mentioned it to him that it’ll be nice if he has the time to listen to the story. That’s all.
