So, it was the year 1998 when Shah Rukh Khan’s romantic-drama drama movie Kuch Kuch Hota Hai was released.

But, what does Salman Khan have to do in this? Well, you’ll find out soon.
It was the Zee Cine Awards show, where Shah Rukh Khan was winning the awards for his lead role in Karan Johar’s Kuch Kuch Hota Hai. So, during the show when, Mahima Chaudhary, Kajol, and Sonali Bendre called out SRK’s name for winning another award, Shah Rukh got up, kissed his wife Gauri Khan on the cheeks, and walked up to the stage to receive his award.
The moment he got up on the stage and received his award, the next thing anyone would expect is a thank you speech by the superstar. But, that’s not what took place!
Instead of giving a speech, Shah Rukh called out his best friend Salman and asked him to take the award and give the speech on his behalf. Srk said, “It’s wonderful to get this award, it’s always been wonderful to get all these awards. I’m going to call on stage a gentleman who’s going to thank everyone else on my behalf, because he feels mujhko saare awards milte hain usko nahi milta (I get all the awards and he doesn’t) Mr. Salman Khan!”
Witnessing SRK’s such kind yet hilarious gesture, Salman Khan came up on the stage and they both hugged each other. Aww, wasn’t that just too sweet to digest?!
