The hug that Salman Khan and Shahrukh Khan shared at an Iftar party earlier this year (see photos) may have thawed the five-year-long chill between them but the two are still far from being good friends. It was evident on Tuesday when SRK was shooting his Happy New Year with Deepika Padukone and Farah Khan on the sets in Mehboob Studios, and Salman was shooting for an ad on adjacent set.
Now, one expects colleagues and peers to greet each other and exchange pleasantries while shooting so close by. But both Shahrukh and Salman maintained their distance. However, Deepika Padukone ventured out during the tea break to meet Salman Khan who was sitting outside his vanity van. She is to be his heroine in director Sooraj Barjatya’s much-talked-about but yet-to-roll film Bade Bhaiyaa.
We hear Deepika chatted with Salman for about 20 mins. The two seemed comfortable with each other and shared a few laughs as well.
Salman Khan has made no secret of his fondness for Deepika Padukone and he recently praised her unstinted progress as an actress. The two are excited about the prospect of working together.
Meanwhile, on Tuesday, while Salman too kept away from the sets of Happy New Year, his brother Sohail Khan and sister Alvira did drop by to meet SRK and Farah Khan.
