New delhi, July 7 – They did it last year. They have done it again. The holy month of Ramzan once again saw friends turned foes Salman Khan and Shah Rukh Khan hug each other at MLA Baba Siddique’s annual Iftaar party, hosted at Mumbai’s Taj Lands End Hotel this evening about two hours ago.
Shah Rukh Khan arrived first. Salman arrived 20 minutes later. No sooner had Salman arrived, the shutterbugs, who were restricted to the red carpet followed Salman inside the venue of the party.
Baba Siddique took Salman around to meet all the guests present on the occasion. When Salman came near SRK’s table the two greeted each other cordially, shook hands and hugged each other.
When Salman was asked about the likelihood of seeing him again with SRK he responded by saying,”Yeh sab Baba hi kara sakta hai. Yeh sab Iftaar tak hi seemith nahin. Inshallah aap humein aage bhi saath dekh sakte ho! ”
Salim Khan, Sohial Khan, Sunil Shetty, Aditya Pancholi and Chief Minister of Maharashtra Prithviraj Chauhan were other guests present on the occasion. Last year, there was much speculation in industry circles about whether Shah Rukh and Salman would call a truce after they had hugged and greeted each other cordially at the Iftaar part hosted by Baba Siddique. Of course nothing of the sort happened.
The paths of the superstars had crossed again at the Star Guild Awards this January, which Salman had hosted at NSCI stadium in Mumbai. The two superstars had hugged each other when Shah Rukh went up on stage to receive the Best Entertainer of the Year Award for his film Chennai Express.
Receiving the award SRK had said it was a great time for him to get an award in the company of Salman, who is one of the greatest entertainers the country has ever seen. According to eyewitness present both the superstars were in great spirits at the party.
