Director Vishal Bharadwaj had plans to cast Shahrukh Khan in his upcoming movie. King Khan had gone through the script and made some suggestions to Vishal. The director took offence to it and started criticizing some of Shahrukh's past work. Shahrukh did to take them lying down and returned all this criticism with interest. The two later started abusing each other before the conversation ended.
The Omkara director later realised the gravity of the situation and wanted to mend things with Shahrukh. He approached writer Gulzar to mediate between the two of them. SRK agreed to bury all the anger but declined the offer to work with Vishal anymore. The insane director should approach Salman Khan who would now welcome him to his camp.
