Salman Khan and Shah Rukh Khan’s relationship has been a roller-coaster ride. The two have done films together (Karan Arjun and Kuch Kuch Hota Hai to name two) and have done special appearances in each other’s films and shows. Things went sour between the two for a few years but their friendship is very much back on.
While they patched up at Salman’s sister Arpita Khan Sharma’s wedding, Shah Rukh appeared on Salman’s Bigg Boss 10 last year and announced to the world that they are the best of friends once again. Well, that was one big day for both their fans and since then, both have given us major friendship goals.
The two have been restricting themselves from talking about each other, though. However, on Bigg Boss 10 episode as Alia Bhatt appeared on Sunday night, Salman said that Shah Rukh Khan may not show it but he takes things to heart and gets affected easily. This happened when Alia Bhatt appeared on the Bigg Boss season 10 to promote her upcoming film, Dear Zindagi. During the show, the Sultan actor gave her a task during which she had to choose only one person out of all the options give to her.
In the last question, Alia was asked to choose between SRK and Salman. Alia looked really stressed and Salman didn’t make it any easier for her. Alia finally said she will choose Shah Rukh because they are starring in Dear Zindagi together. Salman’s retort had her confused again: “Do you say you love your father when you are with him alone and say you love mom when you are with her?”
Alia ultimately chose Salman Khan. The Sultan actor first appeared to compliment Alia and said if he was given a choice between SRK and Alia, he would have chosen her. And then, he told her something that had us surprised as well. Salman said, “Woh nahi samjhta, wo dil me rakhta hai baat aur usse zyada main rakhta hoon, mujhko yeh baatein bohot chubhti hai (When Shah Rukh hears such things, he doesn’t forget them. He takes them to heart. But more than him, I get hurt by such talk).” Further, he gave a reason to why she should choose him. He said, “He is married and have three kids. I am a bachelor.”
Even the rest of the game was not easy for Alia. The choice began with Ranveer Singh and Ranbir Kapoor. When Alia said she would choose Ranbir and make Ranveer disappear because the latter is shooting for Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Padmavati, Salman said, “Why don’t we do this that we keep the one who is disappearing and the one who is already there, we make him disappear.” We do not know if he was signalling at Sidharth Malhotra or taking a dig at Ranbir Kapoor but Alia was speechless.
Later, Alia had to choose between Sidharth Malhotra and Ranbir Kapoor and, of course, Alia chose to keep Sidharth since she “shares a special relationship with him.” She even chose Sid over her best friend, Varun Dhawan. The duo is said to be dating each other in real life too. The actor was so nervous by the end of the game that while signing off, she forgot the release date of Dear Zindagi and Salman had to come to her rescue. Well, we are sure the next time she shares screen space with Salman, she will know what to do and what not to do.
