Mumbai: Salman Khan had a surprise visitor at his place on Monday night. Hrithik Roshan decided to pay Sallu a visit hours before he was scheduled to fly off to USA to undergo treatment for his nerve disorder.
Duggu dropped by Khan’s Bandra residence to wish the actor a speedy recovery. This came as a surprise to not just Salman but the entire Khan family as the duo had not spoken to each other ever since the much publicized verbal spat broke out between the two over ‘Guzaarish’.
Speaking to a daily, a source revealed, “Hrithik Roshan was at a Juhu five star to launch the first promo of his upcoming film ‘Agneepath’. Right after the event, he went to Salman Khan`s residence, Galaxy Apartments in Bandra. He wanted to meet Salman before he left the country. Hrithik wanted to wish Salman luck with his treatment in the US. The two actors spent over two hours in each other`s company.”
Not so long ago, Salman and Hrithik had a fight over Sanjay Leela Bhansali`s film starring Hrithik and Salman’s ex Aishwarya. Salman Khan had commented on the film`s saying, “Koi Kutta bhi nahi gaya dekhne” (Even dogs didn’t go to watch the film).
Hrithik had retorted, “It`s not heroic to laugh or make fun of a filmmaker. In my opinion, a hero never gloats. When you are super successful, it should in fact make you more gracious and loving.”
Filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali was also upset with Salman’s comment and had said, “If such an old and trusted friend can be so insensitive, I don`t want anything to do with the entertainment industry.”
Ever since then, Bhansali and Khan have maintained a safe distance from each other. But news of Salman’s ill health made Hrithik take a step forward towards reconciliation. In fact, the thaw between the actors started a few months back at Sohail Khan’s birthday party, when they greeted each other warmly.
