High tension prevailed in Mehboob Studios, Bandra on Wednesday evening. Shah Rukh Khan and Salman Khan, who can't stand each other, were shooting within frightening proximity of each other, reports Mumbai Mirror.
While Shah Rukh was shooting for a TV commercial, Salman was giving interviews for his brother Arbaaz Khan's forthcoming release Dabangg.
Buzz is that Shah Rukh's well-wishers called him up, urging him to delay his arrival until Salman concluded his interviews about Dabangg.
On the other hand, a friend of Salman says, “Salman was advised to come only after Shah Rukh started facing the camera for the commercial.”
The panic button was pressed when the respective camps of Shah Rukh and Salman both learnt that the arch rivals were supposed to arrive at nearly at the same time. This led to almost pandemonium at Mehboob Studio.
While their individual coteries managed to space their arrival a few minutes away from each other, the panic did not end there. In his customary style, Salman was seen wandering out of the set for some time.
Soon, Shah Rukh's crew members had their heart in this mouth. Salman was heading to Shah Rukh's set. “Thankfully, he turned his direction and headed to a new set where he had another commitment to fulfill.
Thankfully, all this while, Shah Rukh Khan did not come out from his set. Else, kuch bhi ho sakta tha.”
Both Khans were fully aware of each other's presence. “They took a long stare at each other's vanity van while the other was shooting,” adds the source.
Almost everyone, except a few sadists who were looking for a fight between the two Khans, heaved a sigh of relief when their work did not get wrapped up at the same time.
A male attendant from Mehboob confirmed with Mumbai Mirror, “Yes, Shah Rukh and Salman were present at Mehboob around the same time on Wednesday.”
