Friendships in Bollywood are legendary; sometimes for the wrong reasons. takes a look at some of the most controversial friendships in this special series, beginning the eve of Friendship Day (August 1) this year.


Shah Rukh Khan & Salman Khan

Rise: There was a time when the Khans ruled Bollywood and Shah Rukh-Salman made a formidable duo. Both had blockbusters to their credit and were the leading men in Bollywood. Salman, in fact, did a cameo in Shah Rukh’s Kuch Kuch Hota Hai even though he had to lose the leading lady. Things then turned sour because of his relationship with Aishwarya Rai. Salman allegedly barged into the sets of Chalte Chalte where he reportedly misbehaved with Shah Rukh before damaging Aishwarya’s car. The Khans then kept out of each others’ way. Much later, Salman came face-to-face with Shah Rukh at Farah Khan’s mehendi function. It was Salman who broke the ice as the bichchade hue Khans hugged and buried the hatchet. All was well and Salman even shook a leg with Sanjay Dutt, Suniel Shetty and Saif Ali Khan in a song in Shah Rukh Khan’s Om Shanti Om.

Fall: The cracks started showing when Shah Rukh Khan responded with a ‘No’ for Salman’s home production Main Aur Mrs. Khanna. And then it happened.

The story goes that it was at Katrina Kaif’s birthday party at a South Bombay hot-spot where the real cracks began to appear. Shah Rukh was invited. When he entered with wife Gauri Khan, Salman was already tipsy. On spotting Shah Rukh, Salman taunted that the former’s show ‘Kya Aap Paanchvi Paas Se Tez Hai’ was not doing well. Reportedly, then Shah Rukh took a dig at Sallu and Salman’s tempers soared. It was only on Aamir Khan’s intervention that the situation was defused. Shah Rukh Khan left the party and Salman’s side forever. Apparently, the both still don’t see eye-to-eye.

Koimoi Jodi Verdict:  Bollywood’s hopes of bringing these two box-office cowboys together are shattered but we will never give up hope for a Karan Arjun 2!

  1. This is what happened:
    At Katrina’s birthday, Salman, Aamir and Shah Rukh were present. At an instant, Salman joked something about ShahRukh’s ‘Paanchvi Paas”s failure.. Shah Rukh then had nothing to say, so he commented back to Salman on Aishwarya’s case. Salman warned him that it had nothing similar and to be in limits, but Shah Rukh, as everybody knows has a very bad and irritating sense of humor, kept on that matter and the matter fumed!

  2. theres no comparision of saloo flopster with king srk…king srk is the world biggest super star……where saloo is locally known and is a flopster ….why king srk shows didnt do well because it was a kids show….king srk should b compared with hollywood

    • salman is a stud he cracked the joked manly like panchvi pass failure where
      shahrukh reaction was a hijra one bring gals between to man lolz

    • hello dear, dont tell anything what ever is prevailing in to your mind salman also have very good hollywood friends but he like indians more and whereas shahrukh need more hollywood friends because no indian actors would like to accompany him.

  3. salman had no intention to make her girlfriend birthday party a last and ever party. It is due to shahrukh khan both salman and katrina are moving little far from each other but i believe salman and kat will be together and get married and create a symbol for lovers. Shahrukh has nothing to do with salmans personal life whereas salman was taunting on only about show not about karan johars ans shahrukh relatonship.
