If Arjun can, so can Karan. Actor Shah Rukh Khan's friend-turned foe-turned friend again Salman struck his Karan Arjun co-star's patent pose at his sister Arpita's wedding to fiance Aayush Sharma last November.
In this picture posted on Instagram by Aayush's brother Aashray, Salman spreads his arms in perfect SRK-fashion. Behind him, the originator of the pose smiles in what is presumably approval.
Arpita's wedding was the scene of a Bollywood-style burying of hatchets on the parts of both the Super Khans who had been at war for almost six years, ever since a public falling out at actress Katrina Kaif's birthday party in 2008.

On Monday, actors Sushant Singh Rajput and Jay Bhanushali also tried to hug the world Shah Rukh Khan-style.
This double attempt at out-SRKing SRK was marked 10 on 10 by Shah Rukh Khan himself, who wrote on Twitter: 'Love you guys, thanx. U do it better than me.'
This SRK move, responsible for a happy ending in many a film, was referenced in the Happy New Year song Manwa Lage by director Farah Khan and cast members Abhishek Bachchan, Sonu Sood and Boman Irani.
Some days ago, SRK confessed on Twitter that he's been accused of this:
Am told i spoilt romance for ladies.I sold them a non existent lover! Trust the love even if the lover falters..I say pic.twitter.com/gW7DTzXcyj? Shah Rukh Khan (@iamsrk) March 27, 2015
Meanwhile, keep calm and strike the pose. Salman, Sushant and Jay did good, but nobody does it quite like SRK.
