SRK Vs Salman – The New War
Mumbai: That superstars SRK and Salman Khan are friends no longer is not news. After a very public disagreement at Katrina’s birthday party a few years ago, the fences have never been mended. Each star tries his best to avoid talking about the other in public. Yet, no one can deny the strong undercurrent of one upmanship between the two arch rivals.
Currently the point or person of contention between the two is none other than South director A.R.Murgadoss. Murgadoss shot to fame by giving Bollywood its fourth largest hit – Ghajini with Aamir Khan. With the unprecedented success of Ghajini, Mrgadoss became Bollywood’s golden boy. Every producer wanted to sign him up. There were trade whispers that Murgadoss was going to work with SRK. However at that time, nothing materialized.
Now the buzz is strong that a producer wants Murgadoss to direct his Salman starrer. The film is expected to go on floors by 2012 if all goes well. The director meanwhile is busy with a foreign studio for their next film. Post that, he will discuss with Salman Khan.
In the meantime, Murgadoss has already had a couple of meetings with SRK for a possible project. In all probability, it appears that the venture with SRK may take off earlier than Salman’s project. Badshah Khan wins round one. Not such a big concern for Salman, considering the dream run of ‘Ready’ at the BO.
