Dushman ka dushman dost hota hai that's an unwritten law among our B-Town folk. Salman Khan and Shirish Kunder are living proof of that adage. The actor and the director had a fallout after the release of Jaan-E-Mann. For his next, Kunder approached SRK. But after Shahrukh decided not to do the film, things soured between them as well. But now, after Sallu's recent problem with King Khan, the old foes have been bonding big-time.
Says a source, "One person who appears to have benefited from the fight between Shahrukh and Salman is Farah Khan's husband Shirish Kunder. He has become a regular visitor to Galaxy Apartments. He's been visiting a lot these days and stays there till late night." It's common knowledge that Salman and Shirish weren't in touch before Katrina's birthday bash. In fact, Kunder wasn't even at the party. But after the most talked about jhagda In B-town, things have changed. Word is, that the actor and director might even act together.
The source continues, "Their problems are now in the past. While Shirish is waiting for his acting career to take off, his priority is directing films. He doesn't want to be anybody's friend but just focus on his work." When asked about his meetings with Salman, Shirish says, "Yes, we are meeting often. We are working on a film together but I can't talk about it. However, I would like to clarify that it's not true that Salman and I ever had any problems while working with each other."
The film that the Jaan-E-Mann director and actor are coming together for, has been put together by Salman. An insider reveals, "The film is not Joker. It's Salman's idea and he wants Shirish to direct it. The talks began when they bumped into each other at an event and connected. The film will be a James Bond-like stylish action thriller with Hollywood technicians. It's being made on a very huge scale, and Salman might even produce it."
However, the 'Khan'daan is not too happy with this new friendship. The family hopes that the two warring Khans will patch up sometime in the future and they believe that this will not be possible if Salman deliberately cultivates people that SRK has problems with.
