Salman, Shah Rukh’s twitter bromance on Eid

Mumbai: Superstar Salman Khan on Saturday displayed his brotherly bonhomie towards Shah Rukh Khan on the auspicious occasion of Eid by giving a shout out to SRK’s forthcoming film Raees.


Shah Rukh had unveiled the first look of Salman’s latest Bajrangi Bhaijaan and the actor on Saturday returned the gesture by taking to Twitter to introduce the film in his typical funny manner.

Taking the conversation forward, Shah Rukh replied, “@BeingSalmanKhan abhi Bulgaria mein hoon aa nahi sakta. (I am in Bulgaria right now so cannot come) Thodi Biryani bhijwade ghar mein bachhon ke liye. (Send some biryani home for kids) Eid Mubarak & love to family.”

Interestingly, Shah Rukh shared the first look and teaser of the Rahul Dholakia-directed drama on Thursday, a day before the release of Bajrangi Bhaijaan.

In the clip, SRK, 49, is seen in a bespectacled and bearded avatar.

The movie, which also stars Pakistani actress Mahira Khan, is set in 1980s Gujarat, telling the story of a bootlegger, whose business is thwarted by a tough policeman.

Salman and Shah Rukh, who had a bitter fallout in 2008 at a party, are back to being friends but fans are looking forward to their box office battle when both Salman’s Sultan and SRK’s Raees release on Eid next year.
