New Delhi: The Sunday episode of controversial reality show ‘Bigg Boss 7’ had a sweet surprise in store for Salman and Shah Rukh fans and admirers.

While the speculation is on about the equation between arch rivals Salman and Shah Rukh Khan post the epic hug they shared on Baba Siddiqui’s Iftaar party this year, it seems that the former’s heart is melting slowly and gradually.

On Sunday, actors Kareena Kapoor Khan and Imran Khan were on the show to promote their upcoming film ‘Gori Tere Pyaar Mein’. Amidst all the merrymaking on the stage, Imran Khan, who plays the role of a South Indian boy in the film, asked Salman whether he has enacted the character of a South Indian in any of his films? Salman said, ““No. I have never played a south Indian, but mere ‘friend’ Shah Rukh Khan bane the south Indian ‘Ra.One’ mein,” (but my friend Shah Rukh Khan played a South Indian in ‘Ra.One’). This surprising statement was followed up with a round of loud cheer from the audiences and even Imran and Kareena.

Now this makes us wonder whether Salman and SRK reconcile like good friends in near future or are the two superstars going to keep us on the tenterhooks with more such startling statements.
