Aamir Khan made it quite clear that he’s eager to show Salman Khan his upcoming film Dangal, but the latter has made no comment on the matter. Are we witnessing a feud in the making? Perhaps Salman’s silence stems from Aamir’s refusal to promote Dangal on Bigg Boss, saying he was leaving that job to the the film’s trailer. It has to be added that Salman tirelessly promoted Aamir’s Dhoom 3 in 2013, so this recent development is a strange one.
Yet, we know from the earlier falling out of Shahrukh and Salman that disagreements are nothing new among the Khans. When SRK and Bhai had an argument at Katrina Kaif’s party in 2008, it was Aamir who made them bury the hatchet. The PK star was present again when the other two Khans patched up at Arpita Khan’s mehendi ceremony. Recently, Salman went out of his way to promote Shahrukh’s Dear Zindagi and his other upcoming film with Anushka Sharma, but he’s kept mum on Dangal.
One has to wonder if seeds of bad blood were sowed when Aamir commented on Salman’s ‘raped woman’ controversy. According to a report in India Today, Aamir said, “I wasn’t present when he made the comment. I feel going purely by the media reports that I have been reading which quotes him as saying it (raped woman remark), I feel what he said was rather unfortunate and insensitive.” Shahrukh remained tactfully silent during the whole issue and perhaps that’s why he’s not receiving the silent treatment from Salman so far.
