Has Salman Khan / Shah Rukh Rivalry Ended?

Salman Khan and Shah Rukh Khan’s rivalry is well known but it seems after the duo hugged each other at this year’s Ramzan Iftaar party of politician Baba Sidiqqui’s in Bandra, Mumbai, the two have developed a soft corner to each other. 

If not Shah Rukh but Salman Khan has definitely buried the past brawls as the KICK star has not only appreciated Shah Rukh’s eight pack abs but has declared to promote SRK’s forthcoming movie HAPPY NEW YEAR in his most poplular TV show Bigg Boss.

In an interview to a leading TV news channel Salman Khan said, “We will do a lot of promotions of HAPPY NEW YEAR. The team does not need to worry. Though it is up to SRK and his team, if they want to come to the show or not, we will promote it.” 

It may be noted earlier Farah Khan, director of HAPPY NEW YEAR, in her Facebook post wrote, “Salman to promote SRK’s HAPPY NEW YEAR during the launch of his TV reality show Bigg Boss.”

It may noted when Shah Rukh Khan released the photos of his eight pack abs in the movie HAPPY NEW YEAR many of SRK detractors criticized it claiming they are doctored using commuter technology. Nevertheless Salman Khan tight lipped all the critics saying they are 100 per cent genuine and not fake.

Praising Shah Rukh Khan’s eight pack abs Salman Khan said, “I am really impressed with the way SRK has worked on his body. He is really fit. It takes a lot of hard work to get into that shape, and I know because I do that kind of hard work.”

He added, “Hence I know, It is not a fake 8 pack. He has become really ribbed. In fact that picture that you see is not even touched up picture, it’s a raw picture.”

Thus such appreciation coming from Salman Khan’s end make us wonder is the legendary Salman Khan / Shah Rukh rivalry ended?

Aamir Khan: “If I Am Made A Rajya Sabha Member I Will Attend Every Day.”

Aamir Khan’s contribution to cinema, both as an actor and film maker is commendable. In fact his concern for the nation as a whole too is beyond doubt. 

In an interview to a leading TV channel when Aamir was quizzed whether he would be interested to become Rajya Sabha member like cricketer Sachin Tendulkar and actress Rekha, Aamir, immediately said, “If such an opportunity arrives I would definitely garb it with both hands because it would give me a bigger platform to help the needy and deprived.”

On being asked whether he would find time to attend Rajya Sabha since Sachin Tendulkar and actress Rekha rarely attend, Aamir Khan, promptly replied, “I do not wish to comment whether Sachin Tendulkar and actress Rekha attend the Rajya Sabha or not but if I become the member of Rajya Sabha, I will attend every day.” 

Aamir’s confident reply seems laudable because his TV show ‘Satyamev Jayate’ is a pointer towards his concern for his countrymen. In the first two seasons of 'Satyamev Jayate' he highlighted the harsh realities of the Indian society and talked about various social evils prevalent in the society, such as child sex abuse, female foeticide and dowry. 

Yet again he is ready with the third season with a tagline of 'Mumkin Hai'-meaning it’s possible. The concept this time round will be to put the efforts in place. The show will talk about the ways and means of doing away with the social evils.
