Actor Shah Rukh Khan has dismissed reports of a "patch up" between him and the Dabangg star Salman Khan.
"Bachpan se poochte aa rahe ho yeh sawal...ab toh bade ho jaoo (Please grow up...you people have always been asking the same question)," Shah Rukh retorted when asked whether the acrimony between him and Salman has finally come to end.
He was addressing reporters at a press conference tonight. Speculations over the Khans burying their hatchets gained momentum after Shah Rukh, Salman and Aamir attended the premiere of late filmmaker Yash Chopra's film Jab Tak Hai Jaan and the party hosted thereafter.
Soon after the premiere, mega-star Amitabh Bachchan had tweeted "Danced my shoes off with all the youngsters...an amazing evening... spending time with Salman, Aamir, Shahrukh, Katrina and Anushka".
When asked about Big B's tweet, Shah Rukh said, "If Amitji has tweeted it then you all ask him when you meet him in a press conference. There is no patch up or XYZ. Even I read about it in your newspapers. Whatever is written in your newspaper please don't believe into it".
A heated argument between Shah Rukh and Salman at the birthday bash of the latter's ex Katrina Kaif in 2008 created a rift between the two stars. There are several unconfirmed theories floating around and nobody knows what exactly happened at that party.

The incident left a scar and the split only seemed to have widen as the Khans are in no mood to call a truce. Shah Rukh is ecstatic with the reception of his recent release romantic drama film Jab Tak Hain Jaan. According to estimates, the film grossed Rs. 100 crore worldwide.
"I am happy that the film has earned Rs. 100 crore worldwide. It is wonderful that the film is doing great. There were some issues in between despite that the film has worked. This film is very special to Katrina Kaif, Anushka Sharma and me," Shah Rukh said.
