Mumbai: One would have expected that the rift between Salman Khan and his arch rival Shah Rukh Khan would cease to exist with the arrival of a brand new year, but we are afraid that that might not be the case.
The two industry heavyweights, who had their own set of issues to deal with, have been dragged into a situation where they cannot avoid a face off!
And the one responsible for yet another clash between the two warring Khans is Akshay Kumar.
The actor is contemplating approach either Salman or Shah Rukh to play the lead role in his film ‘Oh My God’.
Talking to a tabloid, a source said, “Since Akshay will be busy with other film commitments, he and Ashvini Yardi (the director) plan to approach either SRK or Salman for the role, depending on who is available.”
The film will be an adaptation of veteran actor Paresh Rawal’s Hindi play ‘Krishna v/s Kanhaiya’. But now owing to Akki’s busy schedule, the story has been altered a bit.
“Till Akshay was playing the role, they were sure what they wanted. But now since that has changed the director is more than willing to change the script to suit the star. Both Salman and SRK will bring in a very different kind of personality towards the role and it only makes sense to write the dialogues accordingly,” added the source.
Apparently, Ashvini is good friends with both Salman and Shah Rukh and might pursue either of them to join her on board.
“Ashvini has been friends with both Salman and SRK and therefore there is every possibility that they might come on board,” the source said.
No matter who joins hands with Ashvini, Salman-SRK clash is inevitable!
