Mumbai: Salman Khan’s ‘Dabangg’ screening created a lot of hype and hoopla on last Monday night, and if sources are to be believed, it too had its share of bumpy ride like Katrina’s birthday party.

The special screening of Salman’s ‘Dabangg’ saw an entire gamut of Bollywood stars at the Bandra theatre, but none of them had expected to see Salman’s arch-nemesis Shah Rukh Khan.

Apparently, SRK was spotted at Salman’s ‘Dabangg’ screening for a few seconds. He did not watch the flick, although he was seen in the vicinity, passing by in his car with spouse Gauri, outside the Bandra theatre.

Talking to a news daily, an eyewitness said, "The show got over at around 2 am on Monday night. All the stars were getting out and the photographers were standing right outside to click their pictures. It was then that one photographer spotted Shah Rukh in his BMW convertible with wife Gauri. Shah Rukh actually slowed down his car and moments later, photographers turned to him and shouted out his name. Before they could capture any images of the actor, he zoomed away."

Although SRK was returning home with Gauri that night, it was a mere coincidence that he passed by the very theatre where ‘Dabangg’ preview was held.

Debate continues whether SRK was just passing by or he intentionally landed up at the screening in order to steal the thunder away from Salman’s special preview of ‘Dabangg’. Well, the mystery remains unsolved.

The special guests who were spotted at the private screening of ‘Dabangg’ included Aamir Khan with wife Kiran Rao and son Junaid, Karisma Kapoor, Vidhu Vinod Chopra, Shilpa Shetty, Raj Kundra and Rajkumar Hirani to name a few. Katrina was conspicuous by her absence.
