Mumbai: Salman Khan has once again flexed his muscles, thereby showing his might to arch rival Shah Rukh Khan, by not sharing screen space with the latter’s film trailer with his upcoming Eid release ‘Bodyguard.’ Instead, the hunk of an actor has accommodated Karan Johar’s ‘Agneepath’ trailer.
Apparently, Reliance’s plans of releasing SRK starrer ‘Don 2’ trailer with Salman’s ‘Bodyguard’ have gone for a toss as the ‘Dabangg’ actor bluntly refused to share screen space with Shah Rukh Khan.
Interestingly, Salman is game for sharing screen space with friends Hrithik Roshan and Sanjay Dutt as he insisted on having KJo’s ‘Agneepath’ trailer as a part of ‘Bodyguard.’
Talking to a daily, a source said, “Salman and SRK are not friends. It was obvious that Salman will not want the trailer of Shah Rukh Khan`s film attached to ‘Bodyguard.’ Salman would have said `No` even if he had a guest appearance in the film. His war with SRK is far from over.”
Interestingly, the source revealed Salman’s growing proximity with Karan: “Salman has been bonding with Karan Johar of late. According to industry insiders, the actor will work in the Dharma Productions venture to be directed by Rensil D`Silva. Also, ‘Agneepath’ stars Hrithik Roshan and Sanjay Dutt, two actors who had once had a spat with Salman but are now close to him.”
As of now, ‘Bodyguard’ will have trailers of ‘Agneepath,’ ‘Luv U Soniyo’ and Hollywood flick ‘Real Steel.’ “There is neither a trailer or a promo of ‘Don 2’ in ‘Bodyguard.’ Salman did not want any mention of the SRK starrer in his film,” added the source.
