Shahrukh Khan and Salman Khan were best friends as long as we can remember. But, five years ago, things took a turn for the worse. They had a brawl at Katrina Kaif’s birthday party and their relationship was shattered. However, at Congress leader Baba Siddique’s annual iftar party over the weekend, there were smiles, hugs and feelings of warmth between the two!
Shahrukh was seated on the same table as Maharashtra CM Prithviraj Chavan and Salman’s father Salim Khan, while Salman was seated at another table with his brother Sohail. Salman went up to greet the CM and that’s when the host decided to take him around the table and meet everyone seated there, individually. Salman shook hands with everyone till he reached SRK — it seemed like time froze as they both stood there and looked at each other.
Siddique then moved forward and got the two to hug each other, reports the Hindustan Times. The entire room cheered and clapped while the Khans stood there with blank expressions. They posed for pictures till Salman went back to his seat and SRK went back to his dinner — he chatted with Salman’s father longer than he did with anyone else. We are guessing they were talking about someone who is very close to both of them — Salman possibly?
