Farhan Akhtar, a good friend of Shahrukh Khan was recently seen at the party hosted by King Khan’s foe Salman Khan. The news is doing rounds that Farhan is keen to make Salman a part of his upcoming film. It is worth noting that Shahrukh has worked with arhan in the two installments of Don Movie, with their recent collaboration Don 2 releasing Christmas Eve. Sources have confirmed that Salman was seen having a long chat with Farhan and it was believed to be about a movie, where Farhan is planning to cast Salman. This may come as a surprise to those who have considered Farhan a loyalist of Shahrukh camp.
It is a well publicized rivalry in bollywood, between the two Khans. Shahrukh and Salman, have always avoided maintaining eye-to-eye contact since their bust up at Katrina Kaif’s birthday bash. Salman Khan was the host for that party and under the influene of alcohol, there was a reported tiff between Salman Khan and Shahrukh khan. According to rumours, it all began when Salman started taunting SRK how his television show Dus Ka Dum being better than King Khan’s Kya aap Paanchvi paas se tej hain? As the latter’s show had poor TRP ratings in comparison. SRK then retorted by cracking a Joke on Salman’s personal life which was not well received by the Star. This resulted in a confrontation which is also believed to have turned physical.
Farhan seeking Salman for his film comes fresh on the back Don 2 failing to strike the expected chord with the audience. The film shot in Berlin, has not done the expected business at the box-office and was also not received well by many critics. It will be interesting to see if the project materializes.
