Mumbai, Feb 1: Sajid Khan, Farah Khan's sibling, and Sajid Nadiadwala, SRK's confidante, played the peacemaker on Tuesday between the superstar and Farah's husband Shirish Kunder, media reports say.
It was a soap-style hug-fest at SRK's Mannat, as the dramatis personnae of the big fight became one big ‘happy family' again.
One report said, the day began with Farah driving to Sanjay Dutt's house to apologise on her husband's behalf and to present their side of the story and it ended with Farah en famille driving again to Shah Rukh Khan's Bandra home.
That meeting lasted for over three hours and brought peace.
"Some incidents in our life when resolved makes relationships stronger than they were ever before," tweeted Shrish Kunder.
An urgent confabulation between Farah, brother Sajid Khan and rakhi brother Sajid Nadiadwala led to Monday's peace overtures.
It began on a not-so-happy note for them when Sanjay Dutt coldly heard out Farah and Nadiadwala but refused to offer any comfort. Sanjay was rather miffed at the way Kunder rained on his parade and took away the spotlight from Agneepath's success.
When this was reported to him Farah's brother Sajid jumped into the act and called up Gauri Khan seeking rapprochement.
She invited them over. "Gauri told me that I can bring Farah over any time to her house. She told me that Mannat is Farah's home," said Sajid Khan after the meeting.
The meeting started at four and went past seven pm.
First Gauri came down and was immediately followed by SRK who went and hugged Farah.
SRK even offered Shirish Kunder a hug. With that one gesture the snow melted.
Nobody mentioned Salman's name at the meeting.
"There was no insistence on an apology from either side," said a source present.
"We were with Shah Rukh and Gauri for three hours. We all hugged and cried. We said to ourselves, 'What are we doing? Aren't we carrying things too far? Don't fights happen in every family?' But everything is fine now."
Farah was in no mood to become the butt of jokes herself. "Our issues had become the main topic of entertainment for the media and the public. It had to end and so it did."
"If you are a family for 20 years and some misunderstanding crops up, things need not be said, they are clearly understood.…" said Nadiadwala.
"That's exactly what happened in this meeting. That was the beauty of it."
He insisted that the misunderstanding was resolved within minutes.
"The rest of the conversation was about movies and other aspects of our lives. Look, Shah Rukh, Sajid Khan and I were the main guys at Shirish and Farah's wedding. We are family and we shall remain a family."
Meanwhile, Salman Khan's spokesperson called to deny Shirish Kunder's claims that Salman had called him to offer support.
"Salman did no such thing, please keep him out of this, he will speak to Shirish separately," she categorically stated.
After the trio had driven out of Mannat, Shah Rukh Khan, never one to underestimate irony, tweeted: "Reading stuff and watching tv…Feel like I am the source and author of a Shakespearean farce…without the poetry or the prose of course!!!"
