It was earlier reported that Bhansali had first offered the lead role in Bajirao Mastani to Salman Khan. However, their relationship soured for some reasons and now the filmmaker has apparently decided to drop Salman from his dream project and opt for his arch rival Shahrukh Khan. Recently, the filmmaker met Shahrukh Khan and gave him a one-line narration.
Well, if this is true, this would even severe the ties between the two famous Khans of Bollywood.
SRK and Salman, who were once very good friends are reported to at loggerheads after an apparent fight between them at Katrina Kaif"s birthday bash few years ago. Since then, Salman has been reported to have taken several potshots at Shahrukh.
Sallu has also upset Sanjay Leela Bhansali. If sources are to be believed, soon after the release of Bhansali"s Guzaarish, Salman had remarked “koi khutta bhi nahi gaya dekhne" (nobody went to watch the film).
If it is indeed true that Shahrukh would act in Bajirao Mastani, we wonder how Salman Khan would react to this news!
