The two superstars were caught in a war of words on the July 16 party that Salman threw for current girlfriend Katrina, which later turned ugly.

Salman claimed that his show “Dus Ka Dum” had garnered more TRPs than Shah Rukh’s, said sources.

Salman scoffed at Shah Rukh by saying that in spite of being a super star he could not make his show a hit. Shah Rukh initially did not pay any heed to Salman’s comments. The final blow came when Shah Rukh made a comment on Salman’s ex-girlfriend Aishwarya Rai, inviting a furious retaliation from Salman.

Though Aamir Khan tried his best to resolve the dispute that arose between Salman and Shah Rukh on Katrina’s birthday party, the two are not in a mood for compromise as both have got the support from their well wishers in the industry.

Salman, who is known for his loyalty towards friends, got supportive calls from old time friends like Kareena Kapoor and Akshay Khanna, said sources. Fardeen Khan and Zayed Khan also showed their concern for the actor by calling him. Ranbir Kapoor, who worked with Salman in “Saawariya”, was the only newcomer to jump into the camp fight by calling him to express his sympathy, sources added.

Veterans like Yash Chopra and Javed Akhtar called Shah Rukh to enquire about the incident. Besides, Karan Johar, Sajid Khan and Farhan Akhtar once again proved their loyalty towards the actor by offering their support. Kunal Kohli also called the actor to know about his well being.

“While Salman has the support of actors, Shah Rukh has the support of the directors. It’s an advantage for Shah Rukh,” remarked an industry watcher.

The star-studded birthday party of Katrina Kaif was attended by Bollywood bigwigs like Aamir, Kareena, Saif Ali Khan, Karan Johar, Rajkumar Santoshi, Kunal Kohli, Salim Khan, Sohail Khan, Arbaaz Khan, Nikhil Advani, Prakash Jha, David Dhawan, Anees Bazmee, and Manmohan Shetty, among others.

  2. salman khan is a pure Asshole.. he thinks that he is the hero in bollywood just because he does pump iron. Salman cannot act a fart.. he is a proper example of a Jackass since he is full of controversies
    shahrukh on the other hand has never done anything to cause trouble in bollywood. he is the best Bollywood actor after years of hard work. in contrast “Salman is completely jealous of SRK success”.

    well salman i have a word of advise- drink hard and fart hard but dont ever point a finger on srk!!!
