The two big Khans of Bollywood - Shahrukh and Salman were once very close buddies, in fact, like brothers!
When SRK came to Mumbai, it was Salman who helped him and his wife by providing a roof over their heads. Salman also said to a leading daily during an interview then that he saw SRK as a brother. For him he was like Sohail and Arbaaz.
It was also said that they stayed and even hanged out together very often. Shahrukh also said in Kaun Banega Crorepati 3 (KBC 3) that Salman is family to him. He also said, "Salman's father jokingly said that I will become an actor because I had food at their home." He praised Salman by saying that he is very good at heart and people misunderstand him sometimes. Shahrukh never stopped praising Salman for his kind heart and helping nature. In many award functions, he had praised Salman.
Their fight reportedly started in 2002 on the sets of Chalte Chalte (because of ex-girlfriend Aishwarya Rai Bachchan), and then took a serious during 2008 in Katrina Kaif's birthday party which was hosted by Salman.
In an interview to a leading daily (after the tiff), when Salman was asked if SRK and he were friends, he replied by saying that he was not friend with him anymore. Though he accepted that they had problems before as well, Salman clearly said that this time, it CANNOT be sorted out.
Salman Khan also said, "We are two different people. Our values and way of thinking are different. It is better to declare than put on a fake façade of being friends and back-biting each other."
On Koffee With Karan show (2011), SRK apologised saying, "If Salman is angry with me, it is 100% my fault." But Salman said SRK's apology was for show's TRPs.
