Nothing in Bollywood is firm and durable. Everything here is so fragile be it name, fame, wealth, and friendship that it shocks us. Barring a few couples of actors, who can hardly be counted on the fingers, no one in the film industry has ever managed to retain the friendship with his or her peers. Whenever the topic of friendship is opened, Salman and Aamir’s name flashes in our mind. We all know the friendship bond shared between them. The two have never lost any opportunity to shower praise on each other in public. Even when one was going through a bad patch, we have always spotted them together. However, things are the not same between the two now.
Differences in their friendship started cropping up when Aamir’s ‘Dangal,’ and Salman’s ‘Sultaan’ went on the floor. Since both the films are based on wrestling and share a near-about similar story, the struggle to prove supreme over each other started, though verbally. In spite of the internal strife, the two still managed to hide their differences from the media. They even invited each other for Eid celebration and embraced each other, but the warmth remained absent. Despite not being on the same friendship note, they showed all is well between them. But this time, things turned ugly and the truth came out in front of many.
According to a leading entertainment media, the incident happened at a party thrown by Aamir at his Bandra residence. Many noted film personalities were present at the event and Salman too was invited. As the party was in full swing, Aamir started praising Salman for the success of ‘Bajrangi Bhaijaan.’ He commented that Salman, despite not working hard as other actors, still delivers hit films. He also added that Salman doesn’t bother about the script and story and takes things easily. His films become hits because the audience just laps them. Had he selected movies more maturely in the past, he would have had a long list of movies to boast about.
Aamir’s lecture didn’t go well with the Dabangg star, and he retorted that though he didn’t work as hard as Aamir, at least he gives credit to his directors and writers. According to the sources present in the party, he also used the choicest of cuss words in his own style and lashed out at Aamir.
Seeing no point in waiting, Salman rushed out of the party and vehemently cried out calling Aamir as a fake. All the attendees were in utter shock. Aamir, realizing their friendship has hit the rock, was left teary-eyed.
It seems the tension that was cooking between them for a few months had finally reached to its climax. Now only time can show whether they can bury their differences for good and be friends again or not.
