Followed rumours that Salman, who has a long-standing hate-hate relationship with Vivek (courtesy their war regarding Aishwarya Rai a few years ago), had got the latter ousted from Sher; which also stars his good friend and Bigg Boss mate Sanjay Dutt.
But nothing of that sort happened and Vivek stayed put in Sher and even tweeted that he started shooting for it this week.
To battle it out, a seemingly subdued Salman Khan is now said to be reviving his project Sher Khan with brother Sohail Khan at the helm of directorial affairs, to give a karara jawab (fitting reply) to bete-noire Vivek. It is learnt that for the first time, Salman Khan will be playing a superhero, whose special powers rest in his shoulder-length tresses. Uh-oh!
Bollywood publicist Dale Bhagwagar, who had earlier been the spokesperson for Vivek Oberoi said, "There is no comparison between Salman and Vivek. Both have their own places." He further added, "Since time immemorial, spice and sensationalism have ruled Bollywood. But such gossipy friction only goes to up the equity of actors and keeps them in hot news and in public eye. One has to take it with a pinch of salt."
