It looks like anybody who has some problem with Shah Rukh Khan, is trying to prove a point by becoming friends with his friend-turned-foe, Salman Khan, reports Times of India.
Riteish Deshmukh used to be his good friend till SRK replaced him with Arjun Rampal in Ra One. The friendship turned sour and Riteish is now seen hanging around with Salman. Even Nikhil Dwivedi, who had solid backing from SRK in his first film My Name is Anthony Golsalves, is nowadays singing praises of Salman who gifted the struggling actor a watch.
Mushtaq Sheikh, who had written a coffee-table book on SRK, and who was constantly seen in his company, now drops by on Salman's sets just to say ‘Hello Brother'. And Farah Khan, who earlier was the mainstay of King Khan's camp, has shifted her support to Akshay Kumar and Salman now. These are not the only ones from SRK's coterie who seem to have found a friend in Sallu bhai.
If sources are to be believed, then Sanjay Kapoor and Chunky Pandey, too, were recently spotted hanging around with Salman in Dubai and Colombo. Hope their wives, Maheep and Bhavna, won't change loyalties and continue sticking to Gauri Khan like magnets.
