Ajay Devgn was obviously on the sets and Shahrukh exchanged pleasantries with him as well. The two stars who were once allegedly enemies shared a warm hug, much to the surprise of those present at the scene. This supposed cold war had started when Ajay and SRK's movie, Son Of Sardaar and Jab Tak Hain Jaan respectively released on the same day. Ajay was furious with the YRF banner hogging all film screens on the release day leaving very few theatres for Son Of Sardar.
He felt that the Yash Raj Films had pressurised exhibitors and unfairly taken more screens for their film Jab Tak Hai Jaan. Even though Shahrukh Khan was not responsible for it, Ajay stated in a interview that SRK neither stopped nor tried to stop it.
With Rohit last big hit, Chennai Express staring SRK and his close friend being Ajay Devgn, the director was always stuck in between the duo on which side to take. So the day the two stars hugged on his set, Rohit was practically the happiest man on the planet.
When Rohit Shetty was asked about the two stars meeting on the set of Singham Returns, he stated, "Footage hai mere paas of Ajay and Shah Rukh hugging. Ek crore mein doonga! Chahiye kisiko?"
He continued this humourous joke and added, "Publicity ke kaam mein aayega yaar!"
