The Bollywood industry came to a stop when the two future legends if not legends already, Shahrukh Khan and Salman Khan ended their 5-year rivalry and hugged each other at MLA Baba Siddiqui’s iftar party. Bollywood’s fans were elated and felt top of the world thinking of future possibilities of them both featuring in a movie together.
The media went crazy writing and posting those pictures, terming the Shahrukh and Salman as Karan-Arjun 2. The Khans never spoke about it afterwards but everything was either understood or just completely misunderstood. But Shahrukh Khan during an interview did speak about the hug and it’s effects.
He says, ,“I read assumptions, Karan Arjun 2, X, Y, Z, and, with full respect I say, even for Salman, he’s never spoken about it either. It was gracious, it was loving, and decent, and extremely courteous. Beyond that, I’ve never talked about it. People are there to talk about it. It’s nice to hug people, whenever you can. There’s nothing more or less to that.”.
In a more poetic fashion he adds, “It’s what they say – pyar ko pyaar hi rehne do, koi naam na do. Hum naam dene ki bohot jaldi mein hain – patch up, break up, meet up, Karan Arjun 2, love, thaw…! I wish him the best, he wishes me the best, our lives are different, which is why we don’t see each other”.
