Amidst those questions, Karan asked Sajid, who the better actor is, Akshay Kumar or Shah Rukh Khan? And Sajid Khan said, Akshay Kumar. He was there on the show with his Housefull actors, so it could be possible that he was going all out to promote his film and his friend/actor. Follow the link to check out the video.
Sajid shared a good rapport with Khiladi but on the other hand, his sister Farah Khan had and still now has a good relationship with Shah Rukh, although there was a bit of tension around that time and Farah took Akshay for her film Tees Maar Khan that released in 2010.
