Salman-SRK patch up!

It happened on December 8.
Shah Rukh Khan and Salman Khan, who were warring for almost a year, buried the hatchet at the sangeet ceremony of mutual friend Farha Khan.
Most of the Hindi film industry had turned up for the occasion and the festivities were in full swing.
When the deejay played the chartbuster Bheege hoonth tere from the film Murder, Salman suddenly went up to SRK and embraced him. Some say the hug lasted a good three minutes, and when the two parted they had tears in their eyes.
Onlookers gasped and cheered. Says a mutual friend, "It was long due, really. How long could they go on with their cold war? So uncalled-for and so unrealistic, considering they both have so much feelings for each other."
The Salman-SRK war reached a flashpoint when two years ago the former apparently barged on to the sets of Aziz Mirza's Chalte Chalte to meet Aishwarya Rai.
The two Khans got into a heated exchange that culminated in Ash being fired from the movie and being replaced by Rani Mukerji.
Prior to this incident Salman and SRK were so close that the latter even went to Ash's parents with a marriage proposal from Salman.
The latest developments can only mean bad news for Ash. If the two Khans are friends again her hopes of a patch-up with SRK have receded.
