© Provided by India Today Salman Khan and Aamir Khan have been close friends for more than two decades now, since the time Andaz Apna Apna hit the screens in 1994. For over 20 years now, the two have been seen supporting each other in every endeavour whatsoever, be it promoting each other’s films on social media or being next to each other during tough times. However, if the grapevine is to be believed, that might all be in the past now. Salman Khan and Aamir Khan, following an ugly spat, seem to have called their friendship off.
Even a few months back, one could spot Aamir at the screening of Salman Khan’s Bajrangi Bhaijaan, praising the latter to the heavens. However, chinks in the relationship began developing after the two apprently realised that their upcoming films – Salman’s Sultan and Aamir’s Dangal – were both based on wrestling, and that the stories had certain similarities.
It all reached a peak at a certain party Aamir had thrown for his film fraternity colleagues about a month back. All was well, like Aamir and Salman would have wanted, but for Aamir’s decision to sit and speak career choices with Salman, reports . So after praising Salman’s Bajrangi Bhaijaan, Aamir apparently told Salman that had he shown the kind of maturity in the past that he has shown now, he would have had several films to be proud of. Aamir also added that Salman’s career choices had not had anything to do with story or content or hard work, and that his audience swallowed everything that they were offered.
Salman, on his part, wasn’t really happy with the sermons Aamir was showering on him. So Salman’s retort was that he might not have been as hardworking as Aamir was, but at least he gave adequate credit to his writers and directors. And no, that wasn’t all. Salman dressed his words up with the best of expletives around and hurled them at friend Aamir.
Before the Ek Tha Tiger star headed for the exit, he also called Aamir ‘fake’, suggest reports.
Following the spat, while Aamir has been busy shooting for his Dangal in Ludhiana, Salman has been busy training for his role in Sultan. Aamir’s Dangal hits the screens in December next year, and Salman’s Sultan will be out on Eid 2016. While no one is sure about the relationship-trajectory of the two Khans from here, that this incident will be dissected for long is pretty certain.
