MUMBAI: With Shahrukh Khan and Salman Khan becoming friends last year, the two Bollywood superstars seem to be showing too much respect for each other.
Shahrukh Khan even plays down their boxoffice contest next year on Eid when their films Raees (featuring Shahrukh) and Sultan release.
At an event here, King Khan told the media that the two films may be seen as a boxoffice clash by people. “But not for us (him and Salman). We both are going to do well then. There might be a business clash but there will be equal profit for us,” Shahrukh said.
“We have now become friends, so everything we will do together,’’ said Shahrukh.
After their new bonhomie which started during the wedding of Salman’s sister Arpita last year, the two Khan superstars have put behind their years of enemity which started at the birthday bash of Katrina Kaif in 2008.
Shahrukh have even recently released the poster of Salman’s upcoming film Bajrangi Bhaijaan.
Before the court verdict against Salman Khan in the hit-and-run case in May, Shahrukh went to Salman’s residence to show solidarity with him.
Remember when Shahrukh Khan came to Mumbai first in the early 1990s, he was helped by Salman in finding a place for himself.
