After giving some of the biggest hits including ‘Ek Tha Tiger’ (2012), ‘Bajrangi Bhaijaan’ (2015) and ‘Tubelight’ (2017), Salman Khan and Kabir Khan are reportedly no longer on talking terms.
A source told Deccan Chronicle, “The differences between them have been brewing for some time now. Tubelight was the end of their friendship. Salman and Kabir had heated arguments over how the film and its characters needed to be treated. There were stand-offs in full view of the entire unit, where Kabir would not give in to Salman’s suggestions.”
Rumours of the two having issues started when Khan signed Ali Abbas Zafar for ‘Tiger Zinda Hai’ instead of Kabir. Elaborating on this, the source added, “We can comfortably assume that Ali Abbas now occupies the place in Salman’s professional and personal range that Kabir occupied earlier. Ali is more open to Salman’s suggestions than Kabir was. Ali and Salman have worked on two blockbusters Sultan and Tiger Zinda Hai. And if their third film together, Bharat, is a smash success, Ali Zafar would be one-up on Kabir, since his last film with Salman, Tubelight, didn’t work.”
