Bollywood superstars Salman Khan and Shahrukh Khan have been seen as rivals in Bollywood but there were a number of reports showing that the two patched up with a hug during Eid. We now have Salman Khan's father Salim Khan telling us that it's not possible for two competitors to appreciate each other's work.
Salim Khan just patched up with his writing partner Javed Akhtar to unveil the trailer of the 3D version of their 1975 cult film Sholay. They parted ways about 32 years ago after writing together hit scripts like Zanjeer, Sholay, Deewaar and Mr. India.
When asked would the hit pair of Karan Arjun (Shahrukh Khan and Salman Khan) ever appear as Jai and Veeru in future, Salim Khan said, "They are individuals and grown up people, and such things happen, but there cannot be love between rivals. It's not possible. Only saints can do that."
Although rivalry and competition is inevitable, Salim Khan feels that there should at least be some courtesy among rivals. "If Shahrukh's film does well, Salman will not throw a party and vise versa. Dilip Kumar and Dev Anand had maintained, but now these kids are impatient. They feel bad for small things, but there should be courtesy amongst rivals," he added.
