Salman Khan would’ve had a very tough decision on his hands. He had to choose which premiere to attend as he has friends on both sides of the SOS and JTHJ divide. And as we reported earlier, Salman had made it very clear that he was on his friend Ajay Devgn’s side when he tweeted: “Pathan Ke Yaar Se Panga Mat lena. Sorry yaar..Diwali bekaar without Son of Sardaar”.
So obviously everyone was hoping to spot Sallu at the SOS premiere last night, but Salman Khan surprised everyone when he decided to attend the Jab Tak Hai Jaan premiere. Is it the end of the animosity between Salman and Shahrukh? or did Salman attend the premiere for his ex and very close friend Katrina? we’re still guessing. But the biggest names in the industry were present at the premiere. And we only came to know about Sallu’s presence at the event when Amitabh Bachan who was also present, tweeted: T 930 – Danced my shoes off with all the youngsters .. an amazing evening… spending time with Salman, Aamir, Shahrukh, Katrina and Anushka.
Jab Tak Hai Jaan, of course, stars Shah Rukh Khan, Salman’s sworn enemy ever since they infamously came to blows at Katrina Kaif’s birthday party four years ago. Then again, it also stars Katrina herself, Salman’s ex-girlfriend, his co-star in blockbuster film Ek Tha Tiger and who is treated as an ad-hoc member of Salman’s family. Ek Tha Tiger was also a Yash Raj film. And so Salman attended an SRK event – Bollywood history of sorts.
Well, do you know what was even more surprising? Kajol who is a regular at YRF premieres and a very close friend of SRK was absent from the premiere. Maybe her husband Ajay Devgn wouldn’t have liked that too much.
Jab Tak Hai Jaan also stars Anushka Sharma, Director Yash Chopra died of dengue-related complications on October 21, three weeks before his last film released.
Let’s see which film comes out as a Box Office winner. We’ll keep you updated on the clash between SOS and JTHJ.
