Mumbai: Salman Khan and Sanjay Leela Bhansali might have been best of pals at one time but now the two are nothing short of sworn enemies. And it’s all owing to Aishwarya Rai starrer ‘Guzaarish’ that had Hrithik instead of Salman in the lead.
And believe it or not but Salman is going around town word-bashing Bhansali and his movie ‘Guzaarish’ in the most rough words possible. The actor said that ‘Guzaarish’ wasn’t even watched by dogs- “koi kutta bhi nahin gaya”.
It all started when Salman gifted Bhansali a DVD of Christopher Nolan’s `The Prestige`, which allegedly became the starting point for ‘Guzaarish’. However when Bhansali decided to cast Hrithik instead of Salman in the lead role, Sallu was much too angry.
And now the actor has openly spoken, rather trashed, Bhansali’s latest work on a public forum. Not mincing any words, Salman on a recent award function took sleazy potshots at the taskmaster. The actor while answering a little girl’s questions on how to make it big in showbiz said, “Jaake usko milo. Voh tumhare pe picture bana dega, khud khoob kamayega, lekin tumko kuch nahin dega,” (Go and meet Bhansali, he’ll make a film on you. He’ll make pots of money but won’t pay you a dime).
And when one person in the audience asked him for his opinion on ‘Guzaarish’, Sallu said, “Arre, usme toh makhi udd rahi thi, lekin koi machhar bhi nahi gaya dekhne. Arre, koi kutta bhi nahin gaya,”
Well, looks like it’s a case of sour grapes for Salman.
