After the much talked war between Shirish Kunder and Shah Rukh Khan it seems everything has cooled down. After SRK gave the indication to let bygones be bygones by promoting Joker, the movie which was supposedly the main reason for the fight between the two, Shirish is also seen trying to patch up with the Bollywood’s Baadshah Khan!
On Kunder’s apology, his wife, filmmaker Farah Khan was quoted as saying, “I’m proud of my husband. It takes a big heart to apologise.”
However according to some, this is a publicity stunt done by Kunder since his new movie Joker is going to be released on 31st of August.
It seems both Farah, Shahrukh & Shirish are trying to mend their friendship. First SRK was seen promoting Shirin Farhad Ki Nikal Padi, then Farah was seen visiting the superstar at his home Mannat where he shot a promotional video for her husband’s upcoming movie, Joker.
Buzz was that, Farah’s renewed closeness with her old friend didn’t go down well with Joker’s main lead Akshay Kumar. Apparently he was miffed with Farah since she roped SRK to promote the film. All the media attention went to SRK when it should have been to Akki and so he felt hurt and distanced by Farah and Shirish.
In January 2012, SRK allegedly slapped Shirish Kunder for making nasty comments on his movie Ra.One. It was also reported that he followed the star wherever he went, including the washroom!
And this was when SRK got irritated and pinned him on a sofa, first trying to talk to him. But when Shirish continued to retort back, SRK slapped him.
So will Shah Rukh Khan accept Shirish’s apology or will ignore it thinking as one publicity stunt?
