Salman KhanFriendship Day spl: Bollywood dostis gone kaput

It's ominous to speak of dostis gone kaput on the Friendship Day. But there are one too many such tales to be told from tinsel town. And how we wish these folks would hug and make up.

They used to be chums once. But then chinks appeared and they drifted apart. Salman Khan and Shahrukh Khan; Sanjay Dutt and Sanjay Gupta; Aamir Khan and Amole Gupte; John Abraham and Arshad Warsi; Apoorva Lakhia and Sanjay Gupta; Farah Khan and Sanjay Leela Bhansali - the list can go on. Though we know it is wishful thinking, we hope these guys would end the chill and bury the hatchet on the day meant to forge friendships.


Salman Khan and Shahrukh Khan spat goes back a long way, right to the days when Salman was dumped by Aishwarya Rai and he barged onto the sets of SRK's film Chalte Chalte to speak with Ash. That was the first chink that put paid to the Khan dosti. Later, the friendship was revived at Farah Khan's pre-marriage Sangeeth ceremony. But the chink has now reappeared and widened into a big crack after Salman's recent spat with SRK on the birthday party of Katrina Kaif . So ugly was the spat that the two stars almost came to blows. Any effort to broker peace between them has yielded no result so far.


Sanjay Dutt and Sanjay Gupta once seemed inseparable buddies. Every film Gupta made, right from Kaante to Zinda and Dus Kahaniyaan , had his close buddy Sanjay in it. But things soured during the making of Shootout At Lokhandwala . The movie was produced by Gupta's company White Feather Films of which Dutt used to be a partner. Dutt apparently did not like the way Gupta rubbished the contribution of director Apoorva Lakhia and claimed himself to be the "ghost director" of the movie. Dutt was also upset that some crewmembers were not paid their salaries on time.

Consequently, Dutt dissociated himself from White Feather Films and distanced himself from Sanjay Gupta.

Gupta also had fallout with Lakhia.

That was not it, Gupta later made a foe out of his friend Sunil Shetty as well when he publicly trashed Shetty's production Mission Istanbul (not that it did not deserve to be trashed, now looking in retrospective) when the film was being shot.

So here was a case of three friendships gone kaput. Gupta-Dutt, Gupta-Lakhia and Gupta-Shetty.


Aamir Khan and Amole Gupte were friends when they began working on Taare Zameen Par . Amole had penned a script from his experience of all those years spent with disadvantaged kids and wanted to direct the film under Aamir Khan's production house. But a few days into the shooting, the differences appeared. Though Aamir fully approved of the script, he did not like the way Amole was directing it. So Aamir eventually took the directorial reins while Amole was made creative director.

After the film became a superhit at the box-office and Aamir got all the acclaim, Amole came out and spoke openly about how Aamir stole his 'baby' (the film) from him. And it was not a coincidence that at award functions Amole thanked many people except Aamir.


Their friendship began with Kabir Khan 's film Kabul Express and ended with Vivek Agnihotri 's Dhan Dhana Dhan Goal . It was during the making of the latter that the rift appeared. Arshad and John began having creative differences which only grew larger in proportion as the movie progressed. It came to such a point that by the time the movie was complete, Arshad said in an interview that he wouldn't ever do a movie in which he has to play a second fiddle to someone less competent.

The two stars haven't made up yet.

The industry has also witnessed cold wars between Farah Khan and Sanjay Leela Bhansali , Vidhu Vinod Chopra and Sajid Khan , and Amitabh Bachchan and Shatrughan Sinha .
