Little introduction -
After the bitter incident on the sets of Chalte Chalte, Salman Khan & Shah Rukh Khan had parted ways. Shah Rukh Khan was upset for Salman messing up in his production house project whereas Salman Khan was upset for Shah Rukh Khan not standing by him like a brother he was considered to be.
To take you back to 1998-1999, Salman Khan was literally upset with Blackbuck poaching case. It had been a downer for Salman & he was very worried. It was this time, Salman seeked out to the people who love him the most for emotional support. And not surprisingly Salman Khan reached out for Shah Rukh Khan. Their bonding had grown super strong at this time where Shah Rukh had become a brother to Salman just like Arbaaz & Sohail. That's the reason why those two were seen together, also doing roles in each other's films.... Due to this strong bond, Salman had never expected Shah Rukh to not be on his side & especially shatter his dreams of working with Aishwarya Rai in an epic love story, immortalizing his love for her on the big screen while they move forward in their relationship. Things didn't go as planned & to make things worse, Shah Rukh-Aishwarya played iconic Devdas & Paro in the epic novel adaptation. Salman Khan wanted everything to be about Salman-Ash but suddenly he was out of the picture while Shah Rukh stepped on his place.
Now this reflected quite frequently which ended up bad for their relationship due to the events that occured on the sets of Chalte Chalte.
December 9, 2004 at Hyatt Regency the sangeet ceremony of Farah Khan was organized. Everybody from the bollywood fraternity gave their attendance & so did Salman Khan - Shah Rukh Khan. They avoided each other for a long time until Salman Khan decided to set things straight. He went to Shah Rukh Khan & hugged him from behind. That was all it took for the friends, Shah Rukh responded affectionately.. apparently both were in tears for a bit & surprised everyone as they re-bonded.
After their ugly fight on 2008 at Katrina Kaif's birthday bash... It took 6 years for Salman Khan & Shah Rukh Khan to reconcile.
It was November 16, 2014 & like I said, it was the sangeet ceremony of Arpita Khan. It was once again the occassion of sangeet ceremony chosen by the Khans to forget their differences & be there for each other.
How long did you think people had to wait to witness them like this?
