Just a day after Salman Khan and Shah Rukh Khan who were shooting at a Suburban studio together conveniently avoided each other, they greeted each other with the formal handshake and then hugged each other at Baba Siddiqui’s Iftar party at a Suburban Hotel last evening.
While Salman who had reached the venue around 6:30 was sitting with his friends for Iftar, Shah Rukh Khan entered around 7:15. Shah Rukh and Salman were sitting two tables away from other. According to a source present at the venue, “Baba Siddiqui went and spoke to Salman as well as Shah Rukh and called them together. When the two came together face to face there was slight awkwardness on their faces but later both of them shook hands and hugged each other.”
After the Iftar party, Salman Khan left as he is shooting for Big Boss Season 6 at a suburban studio. While Shah Rukh who was sitting with Salman Khan’s father Salim Khan throughout the party, had dinner also with him.
The two superstars had fought way back in 2008 in Katrina Kaif’s birthday party at Olive. After that the two have never seen each other face to face.
Baba Siddiqui’s friend and Real Estate Developer Shadaab Patel who also happens to be a common friend of Salman and Shah Rukh said, “I was so happy to see both of them meet. Initially it was a little awkward but they met and hugged. Now I pray that the two meet more often and finish the animosity between them. Shah Rukh not only had dinner with Salim uncle but also the two were engrossed in a detail conversation all the time.”
Salman and SRK had previously fought way back in 2003 also when Salman had barged on the sets of SRK’s film Chalte Chalte in order to forcibly meet Aishwarya Rai . The two eventually made up by the end of 2004 at the pre-marriage ceremony of Farah Khan.
