However, Salman recently surprised all by saying that Shahrukh is the king of Bollywood.
But, just when we thought that the two super Khans of Bollywood have proved the supposed rivaly wrong, a recent incident again forced us to think otherwise.
During a promotonal event of SRK's upcoming film Happy New Year, Shahrukh was asked to comment on praising words for him from another Khan and that is when jolly Shahrukh apparently turned little agitated.
Shahrukh countered the reporter saying, "Tere mein dum hai toh us actor ka naam le (If you have courage, tell that actor's name)." Nevertheless, the media person was quick to respond saying, "Salman".As soon as the reporter took Salman's name, Shahrukh's PR person reportedly snatched away the mike from the reporter's hand.
Well, Shahrukh is busy promoting Happy New Year but we wonder what made Shahrukh so unhappy about Salman praising him.
Check some of the films in which Shahrukh and Salman featured together...
