Bollywood Badshah Shah Rukh Khan and Superstar Salman Khan might be on screen rivals and their fans may slug it out with each other. However, Shah Rukh’s latest statement has shocked many as SRK stated that whatever he is now is because of Salman Khan’s father and writer Salim Khan.
When SRK had first came to Mumbai, he had struggled a lot to get roles in films and worked hard to meet his ends. Apparently, that’s when Salman’s family said to have stood behind him and supported him. Shah Rukh stated that what he is today is because of Salim Khan, father of Salman Khan.
SRK, who attended the TV show Dus Ka Dam that has Salman Khan as host, stated that he had come to the show only for Salman. He said he would go to wherever Salman asks him to go. That’s when SRK got emotional and revealed how Salman’s father Salim Khan had encouraged him. SRK recalled that Salim Khan’s family had fed him at their home.
At the early of their careers, both SRK and Salman were very close. However, due to some issues, differences surfaced between the duo in 2008. But later at an Iftar party, both Khans have patched up by hugging each other. SRK had also attended the wedding of Salman’s sister Arpita Khan in 2014. Since then, the friendship is back.
