Mumbai: Riteish Deshmukh, who celebrated his 33rd birthday last Saturday succeeded in bringing the two big Khans- Shah Rukh Khan and Salman Khan under a common roof, but couldn’t do much to bridge the gap between them.
SRK and Salman, who have worked in 3 films together `Karan Arjun`, `Kuch Kuch Hota Hai` and ‘Hum Tumhare Hain Sanam` have been at loggerheads since the latter’s infamous love story with Aishwarya Rai died an ugly death.
And when they came face to face at Ritesh’s birthday bash, both gave each other a royal ignore.
The two biggies were accompanied by members of their respective gangs and grabbed eyeballs by showing the strength of their camps. While Salman’s brothers Arbaaz and Sohail, his sister-in-law Malaika were by Salman’s side, SRK had best friends Karan Johar and Arjun Rampal giving him company.
However, KJo and Rampal were seen juggling between SRK and Salman while producer Sajid Nadiadwala chose to stick to the `Dabangg Khan`. Even Priyanka Chopra, SRK’s newest best friend buried the hatchet with Salman Khan by giving him a warm hug.
Nonetheless, the party was a peaceful one with no showdown.
We are sure Riteish must be thanking his stars!
