Salman congratulates Sachin, takes a dig at Shah Rukh!
By Hindustan Times
There is no end to Salman-Shah Rukh war. At Mukesh Ambani's bash in Sachin Tendulkar's honour, Salman left everyone in splits when he was called on stage to congratulate the cricketer for his 100th ton.
The Dabangg Khan in his trademark style said: "Sachin ka record todna mushkil hi nahi namumkin hai. Aur yeh Don nahi main bol raha hu."
He went on to clarify that his dad Salim Khan had written the dialogues for Amitabh Bachchan starrer: "Bol bhi sakta hu kyunki mere father ne likhi hai picture (original Don). Rights toh legally unhi ke paas hai, Amitji ne ki hai yeh picture, itna toh haq banta hai."
Once upon a time in the 1990s, Salman Khan and Shah Rukh Khan called each other brothers. But now the rivalry between the two is out in open. While Salman says 'SRK and I can never be friends,' SRK thinks 'Salman and I don't talk which is absolutely right.'
Things apparently got ugly at Katrina Kaif's birthday bash in 2008. It is believed that SRK made inappropriate comments about Salman's ex-flame Aishwarya Rai Bachchan which annoyed him.
King Khan in an interview had said that Salman got angry because he turned down cameo in Main Aur Mrs Khanna (while Salman agreed to do a guest appearance in Om Shanti Om). Salman in turn had said he never offered him the film, adding, "Shah Rukh was like my brother. He used to call me sir, sir during his struggling days."
In 2011, on Koffee With Karan, SRK publicly apologised to the actor saying: "If Salman is angry with me, it is 100% my fault." However, Salman retorted saying SRK's apology was for TRPs.
The two have worked together in Karan Arjun, Kuch Kuch Hota Hai, Har Dil jo Pyaar Karega, Hum Tumhare Hain Sanam and Om Shanti Om.
