The buzz of anticipation as Shah Rukh Khan arrived at the premiere of 3 Idiots was nearly as loud as the buzz of appreciation for Aamir Khan’s latest turn.
For, the drama his turning up promised could be as much fun as the movie playing on the screens inside IMAX, Wadala.
SRK’s bête noire Salman Khan had arrived well in time for the movie to begin and the waiting media and star-gazers turned away disappointed when there seemed to be no sign of Shah Rukh Khan, while hosts for the evening no doubt heaved a sigh of relief.
The last time SRK and Sallu met – at Katrina Kaif’s birthday – the birthday girl had been utterly sidelined in the furious exchange of words between the two superstars, and Aamir Khan had spent the night running the short distance between Salman’s house Galaxy Apartments and SRK’s home Mannat, playing peacemaker.

But never one to back out of awkward situations, Shah Rukh arrived minutes before the film ended and was greeted by Aamir.
Just as Shah Rukh moved to talk to director Kunal Kohli, the show got over and out came Salman Khan. He spied Shah Rukh chatting away and gave him the full benefit of the famous Sallu I-wanna-knock-your-teeth glare. He stared long and hard forcing SRK to turn in his direction, but just then, Aamir said something to Salman, forcing him into a conversation.
By this time, other guests too had swarmed into the area forcing their bodyguards to lead the two stars away and out. Separately.
