Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Bajirao Mastani and Shahrukh Khan's Dilwale faced a major box office clash on December 18th. A day before the release of their films, both SRK and SLB held a special screening of Dilwale and Bajirao Mastani respectively , but did not invite each other.
Talking about the same, Sanjay Leela Bhansali told Pinkvilla, "No, we didn't invite Shahrukh for Bajirao screening, he would be busy, but he didn't invite me either. We were all very busy. I understand he is so short on time, his film has released and he is spearheading the whole thing, and so am I."
Sanjay Leela Bhansali further added, "And then, there was a lot of SRK versus SLB stories going around ...I am no star as compared to him, he is a super star, where am I? We are all busy with our own release and pre-release stress. But I would love to call him and show him my film and I would love to see Dilwale myself. But I think a little later maybe. I have to still keep the promotions alive, at least for a week."
