Mumbai: Bollywood filmmaker Karan Johar recently approached Salman Khan for his next film despite knowing his close friend Shah Rukh Khan’s bitter relationship with the hunk of an actor.

Indeed, the last time Salman worked for Dharma Productions’ was way back in year 1998, in ‘Kuch Kuch Hota Hai’.

It is believed that Salman’s comeback hits ‘Wanted’ and ‘Dabangg’ have changed the equation as the bad boy of Bollywood seems to have become the current favourite of Karan Johar.

Apparently, the ice broke when Karan Johar asked Salman Khan to be a part of ‘Koffee With Karan’. However, Salman agreed to do the show for a price, which would go as a donation to his foundation. While Karan denied paying up for a celebrity on his chat show, he is currently in talks with the actor for a film to be directed by Rensil D’Silva.

Considering KJo’s friendship with Shah Rukh, his sudden shift towards Salman’s could spell doom to his association with SRK.
Talking to a daily, a source said, “After ‘Kurbaan’, Rensil is directing a fantasy-action caper on the lines of ‘Ocean’s Eleven’. When Karan Johar heard the script, he absolutely fell in love with it. Both Karan and Rensil felt Salman was perfect for the main part.”

It seems SRK’s loss is Salman’s gain!
