Their friendship may never be as what it once was, but that doesn’t mean they don’t acknowledge each other. In a recent interview Salman Khan did exactly that when the question of his friendship with Shah Rukh Khan came up.
Times of Indiareports the actor expressing his views on the situation, “I like Shah Rukh though we do not get along and don’t talk.Upar wale ne use itni izzat aur shohrat di haiand then there are people who will come and bitch him out to me that I can’t stand at all. We are not best friends any more, but are normal and cordial. He thinks. He plans. God has given him a mind and he uses that and is a hardworking man.”
He went onto explain that though their views maybe different, he finds no fault in the way their disputes were handled, “Sometimes I seriously think that the way he thinks is far more correct than the way I think. As in, the way he is and the way he thinks for his family is 100% correct. ”
He went onto add, “I know he is correct when it comes to his family and stuff like that, but I can’t get myself to do that. People come and bitch him out, given that they know that there is a distance. They will come and tell me, you are a different guy and he is a different guy. I ask them what is the difference? The fact that you can make a fool of me and you can’t make a fool of him? I may allow you to use me and I let it go as I feel the person will get exposed or it will spoil relationships. But I always know. But if Shah Rukh is not allowing it, he is 100% correct and that is his personality.”
Being one of the most talked about situations in the industry, here’s hoping Khan’s words are heard and understood. Despite not being the best of friends, it’s good to see the respect for each other is still there.
