Mumbai: After losing his good pal Farah Khan to arch-rival Salman Khan, Shah Rukh is in for another shocker. The actor, who is known to be thick buddies with Karan Johar, received a jolt when he came to know that KJo had attended Salman’s starry ‘Dabangg’ premiere. Karan, who has always stayed by SRK’s side, seems to have had a clear change of loyalties or so it seems.

Even though Salman and KJo haven’t been in good terms for obvious reasons, the actor extended an olive branch by arranging a special show for Karan Johar on Wednesday. What’s more is that Salman even invited Johar’s mother, Hiroo Johar. And with Salman going out of his way to mend fences, KJo graciously accepted the invitation.

Confirming the news, a source said, "Salman seems to be in a different mood these days. The actor, known to be the best of friends and the worst of enemies, invited Karan for a special screening of Dabangg which the latter attended. Earlier, Salman had said in a press conference that he was sure Shah Rukh Khan would also watch the film as his brother Arbaaz is a good friend of his.”

The source further added, “Salman had also praised the promos of Karan`s film ‘I Hate Luv Storys’ to Imran Khan and even tweeted about it. It comes as a surprise as Karan is known to be his arch rival, and Shah Rukh Khan`s close friend. The show was also attended by Vidya Balan, Salman`s sister Alvira and her husband Atul Agnihotri.”
