Remember the infamous rivalry between Sanjay Dutt and Anil Kapoor? Apparently, many aeons ago Kapoor had made some uncharitable remarks about Dutt's family, though now Kapoor completely denies.

Stings of the past completely forgotten, Sanjay Dutt who according to his company's CEO Dharam Oberoi is booked to act until 2009, is adamant on mending all his bridges and washing away all the bitterness of the past.

Putting aside whatever differences that might have existed between the two, Sanjay Dutt this week took time off to do an item song for Anil Kapoor's production Shortkut which is nearly complete.

The song also featuring Anil Kapoor (making a guest appearance in his own film) and Amrita Rao was shot at breakneck speed by choreographer Bosco-Caesar. "Sanjay Dutt rushed back to Mumbai for two days from the Bahamas only to shoot the song for Anil's film. But the song couldn't be completed in time. He was to leave for South Africa to shoot for another film on Wednesday night. But he postponed his trip to South Africa by a day to complete Anil's song," informs the CEO of Sanjay Dutt Productions, Dharam Oberoi.

What's more, Dutt refused to charge a penny for the item number, although the Kapoors insisted on paying. "Finally, Anil's wife Sunita Kapoor found a way out. Being a jewellery designer she presented Sanjay Dutt's wife with a diamond necklace, ear-rings and bangles from the Sunita Kapoor Collection," informs Dharam Oberoi.

The Dutt-Kapoor-Rao item number was wrapped up on Thursday. And Dutt flew off for a long schedule in South Africa a day late.
