However much trouble they can get into, Bollywood stars are always full of surprises. One such surprise was given by actor Salman Khan, whilst on his reality TV show ‘Bigg Boss’, where he spoke positively of arch rival Shah Rukh Khan’s success.
During the show, contestant Imam Siddiqui, a designer-casting director began to argue with Khan (Salman). Siddiqui boasted how he was responsible for Khan’s (Shah Rukh) success by casting him alongside actress Preity Zinta in an ad film. Stating how by doing this got the ‘Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge’ (1995) star noticed, Khan (Salman) became furious with the contestants arrogant and dis-respectful behaviour.”Shah Rukh is what he is because of his fans and hard work. He pursued his career with determination and not because someone like Imam gave him work in an ad film,” India Todayreported the actor-host protesting.
As surprising as this is, it does prove that though the two actors are not in good terms with each other professionally, it’s comforting to know that their professionalism is respected by both party’s. Let’s just hope this set’s an example for other rivals.
