Just a few days ago one of the rare incidents took place when Bollywood arch rival Salman Khan and Shahrukh Khan were shooting simultaneously at Mehboob studio. While the stars were unaware of each others presence, their respective crew members went to the extreme lengths to make sure that the superstars don't bump into each other.
The staff members of both the superstars crew were worried and did not want to take a chance . They made sure that they don't come face to face. According to sources on Thursday, Shahrukh was at the studio to shoot a commercial with Gauri. Incidentally he was supposed to shoot the ad earlier which got postponed to Thursday.
Only when the ad production team reached the studio they got to know that Salman was already shooting in the same premises. From then on the respective crews ensured that the two don't cross paths. The crew however knew that while things can be under control when the actors are shooting, it may turn out to be ugly after their respective wrap-ups.
Apparently, a couple of guys from both the crews were given the task of finding out when the other was scheduled to leave. At midnight when Shahrukh was leaving, a unit member crossed checked Salman's status to find that Salman will take one more hour to finish his shoots.
Last in August both the actors were in the same studio shooting for their respective schedules. That time too their respective staffs ensured that they do not come face to face. Wooof!! that was a narrow escape!
