Salman, Priyanka
Priyanka Chopra has always been a part of Shahrukh Khan's camp, but now the actress is slowly getting close to Salman Khan and his family. Recently, she was spotted with Salman Khan at midnight at his Bandra residence. The actress was earlier spotted bonding with Salman's younger sister Arpita at Karan Johar's party in May. Arpita even tweeted a picture of the two and had written, "People can be friends without benefits!" 

Interestingly, few years back both the actors avoided coming face to face with each other. It is said that Priyanka refused to do Sohail Khan's production Mr Aur Mrs Khanna, so Salman got mighty miffed with Priyanka Chopra. Also, Priyanka Chopra was the original choice for Namaste London, but rumour has it that Salman Khan convinced the filmmakers to take Katrina Kaif in the movie, instead of Priyanka.

Not only this, Priyanka Chopra once said on Karan Johar's chat show, "Mr Khan - that's how I refer to him - has something against me, but I don't quite know what that is."

She added, "Frankly speaking, I don't know the reason that miffed Mr Khan. And I really don't bother, because even though I have tried to clear the air a couple of times, he has never really come forward to do the same."

Now, Priyanka Chopra is trying to get close to Salman Khan and his family. We all know the famous fight between Priyanka Chopra and Gauri Khan. Gauri Khan, who was feeling insecure from Priyanka's closeness with Shahrukh, threw Priyanka out from her friends circle. After that even Shahrukh is maintaining a safe distance from Priyanka. This can be the reason why Priyanka Chopra is heading to Salman Khan's camp.

Also, Priyanka knows that Salman is the most bankable star in Bollywood today. Rumour has it Priyanka wants Salman to recommend her name for his next movie as she is short of work. She has only Zanjeer with Ramcharan Teja. She even lost Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Ram Leela to Deepika Padukone. And after all, who does not want to get linked up with Salman Khan, as we all know how he changed the career of his ex-girlfriend Katrina Kaif.

Hmmm... Priyanka Chopra surely knows how to play her cards well!
