Salman Khan attends Jab Tak Hai Jaan premiere, is the war over?
It must be hard being Salman Khan at the moment. Famously loyal to his friends, Salman has buddies on both sides of the Son Of Sardaar and Jab Tak Hai Jaan divide. Just a few days ago, Salman made it clear he was on pal Ajay Devgn’s side with this tweet: “Pathan Ke Yaar Se Panga Mat lena. Sorry yaar..Diwali bekaar without Son of Sardaar”
But last night, his was an unexpected presence at the grand premiere of Jab Tak Hai Jaan attended by the who’s who of Bollywood. Fellow celebrity guest Amitabh Bachchan tweeted this morning: T 930 – Danced my shoes off with all the youngsters .. an amazing evening… spending time with Salman, Aamir, Shahrukh, Katrina and Anushka.
Notably absent from the premiere was actress Kajol, once a frequent Yash Raj and Shah Rukh collaborator and now married to Ajay Devgn.
Ajay and Yash Raj Films have been at legal loggerheads these last few weeks with Ajay accusing YRF of keeping his film Son Of Sardaar out of theatres in favour of their own film. A petition lodged with the Competition Commission was rejected, as was Ajay appeal to the Appellate Tribunal.
Jab Tak Hai Jaan also stars Anushka Sharma, in addition to SRK and Katrina. Director Yash Chopra died of dengue-related complications on October 21, three weeks before his last film released.
