Salman and Shah Rukh Khan had a major fight in 2008 at Salman's then girlfriend, Katrina Kaif's birthday bash
Shah Rukh Khan may have tweeted
about dancing with fellow Bollywood star Salman Khan at the
premiere of Jab Tak Hai Jaan but he does not believe they
will reconcile anytime soon.
The two actors, who have remained on unfriendly terms
since their spat at Katrina Kaif's birthday party in 2008,
crossed paths at the premiere of Yash Chopra's last film and
were said to be cordial but Shah Rukh today said their patch
up, if it happens, won't be public.
"We have had a little bit of personal issue. This is not
the first time, it is about four years ago. We were very close
for 20 years... We have certain things that are similar and
there are certain things which we disagree on. So at this
point of time we are on that plane of disagreement," Shah Rukh
said at Hindustan Times Leadership Summit 2012.
SRK's co-star Katrina Kaif deftly avoided a comparison
between the two stars by saying that she would love to see
them in a film together, probably produced by her.
Shah Rukh, initially, joked that he would do the film for
Katrina's sake but when the question was put directly to him,
the actor said he did not see the issue getting resolved over
"There may come a time when these things get resolved but
it will never be on a public platform. It will be a personal
thing. It is a serious matter and it cannot be resolved by
working in a film together or if someone asks us to try and
resolve the matter. None else can resolve it for us, only we
can do it..It will take time. It may happen someday."
Post the premiere of JTHJ, SRK had tweeted, "...Had a
lovely time dancing partying with all...Amit uncle, Salman,
Shah Rukh, who had a fallout with Bal Thackeray after his
party attacked King Khan's film My Name Is Khan, also spoke
about his personal relationship with the Shiv Sena supremo. He
was one of the many celebrities who visited Thackeray's
residence Matoshree in Mumbai yesterday to inquire about the
ailing leader's health condition.
"I have personal relationship with Bala saheb, Uddhav and
Raj. This kind of issue was suddenly brought up... I do
understand the politics or the misunderstanding of it. I don't
know how it went beyond that.
Shah Rukh said he spent more than an hour with the family
praying for Thackeray's recovery.
"My mother always said that you fight with people when
you are in good health but in bad health you should always
stand by their side. It is something that is ingrained in me.
He is extremely unwell. I needed to be there. I visited him
and his family. I was there for one and half hours and I wish
that he is healthy again. We can fight about some issue
later," he said.
The actor's latest film Jab Tak Hai Jaan has been doing
well at the box office since its release on Diwali. SRK is
seen romancing Katrina and Anushka Sharma in the film.
Despite romantic hero image, SRK had vowed never to kiss
on-screen, a rule that he has broken in his latest release.
When asked about it, he said, "I have never kissed
on-screen because I was very awkward about it. I always had
two reservations, kissing and the other horse riding. I did
the kissing sequence in the film because I was told by Adi
(Aditya Chopra) and Yash ji that it was required in the film.
They knew I was not comfortable so they forced me to do it and
in the end I had to give in."
After spending 22-years in the film industry and having
acted in over 75 films, the actor said he is in a very
happy phase in life.
"I am in a very happy and satisfied phase right now, be
it professionally or personally. I am not scared at all. I
have got all that I want in life -- a big house, fame, career,
family. I have been given a lot," Shah Rukh said.
"I don't think I am talented at all. There was a time
when I was young and I used to think that I was very talented,
a great actor but not anymore. I am very humbled for what I
have and even if all the fame, the money is taken away from
me, I will still have more than what I had when I cam to
Mumbai in 1990," he said.
