Recently at a charity event Salman said about SLB(Sanjay Leele Bhansali) directed movie Guzaarish – “Arre usmein to makkhi udd rahi thi, lekin koi machhar bhi nahi gaya dekhne, koi kutta bhi nahi gaya (There was a house fly, but not even a mosquito went to watch the film, not even a dog went)”. Apparently he was referring to a scene where a fly sits on Hrithik’s nose, but since he is paralyzed, he is unable to remove it and waits for Aishwarya’s assistance to do that.
The remark on the movie was so outrageous that it obviously wasn’t taken easily by the director, Sanjay Leela Bhansali, when asked for a reaction he said – “if such an old and trusted friend can be so insensitive then I have nothing more in entertainment industry”.
The latest news is, in a Bigg Boss episode, Anil Kapoor and Akshaye Khanna joined in as guests in order to promote their upcoming bollywood film “No Problem”. When asked about his earlier remarks and how it has offended SLB, Salman replied – “If he (SLB) is angry so be it”, “Saath to 4 – 5 film ka tha par 2 par hi khatam ho gaya” (We had plans to make 4-5 movies, but our friendship didn’t last beyond 2)
Anil Kapoor also decided to join in and mocked Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s “Saawariya” by saying that had he (SLB) taken Salman in the lead, the movie wouldn’t have flopped.
So why is Sallu Bhai so angry with SLB that he is so openly mocking his movie ??
Reports say that it was Salman Khan who gifted Sanjay the DVD of Christopher Nolan’s “The Prestige” and when SLB made a decision of casting Hrithik Roshan instead of Salman in Prestige inspired Guzaarish, it didn’t go down well with Sallu. He must have taken it on his chin and adding insult to injury, SLB chose Aishwarya, Salman’s nemesis, opposite Hrithik. No wonder, SLB eneded up being on the receiving end of Sallu Bhai’s infamous gussa !!
