Another Bollywood friendship was tested a few months ago. Karan Johar and Salman Khan had announced a joint production venture, a movie based on Battle of Saragarhi, which would star Akshay Kumar. But weeks after the official announcement, Salman backed out from the project. This gave rise to speculations and gossips that Akshay and Salman’s friendship has bitten the dust. But quashing any such rumours is the latest piece of information that will bring joy to fans of these two actors. Akshay has attended the private screening of Salman’s film Tiger Zinda Hai.
Tiger Zinda Hai is slated to release on December 22. With only a few hours to go for the worldwide release, Salman is hosting a private screening for family members and close friends from the industry. A source close to the Khan family EXCLUSIVELY revealed to us that the olive branch was extended by Salman. The actor had messaged Akshay inviting him to the screening of Tiger Zinda Hai. Of course, being the sport he is, Akshay has also attended the screening. Check out the pictures below.
Now, time will tell how this restrengthening of friendship will shape Bollywood. Will the duo reunite for another project if not the Battle of Saragarhi film? ALSO READ: Ajay Devgn confirms Salman Khan is NO longer a part of Akshay Kumar and Karan Johar’s film on the Battle of Saragarhi
BollywoodLife had EXCLUSIVELY shared with the readers that Salman had walked out of the project, now titled Kesari, because he had learnt that his friend Ajay Devgn, too, was making a film on the same topic. He was unhappy that he was kept in the dark that he’d be at loggerheads with his buddy had he chose to back Kesari. But seems like there is peace in the kingdom now.
