Salman Khan prefers Karan Johar over Shah Rukh Khan

Aug 25, 2011

salman khan Reliance's plans of releasing the Don 2 first trailer with Salman Khan's Bodyguard have been squashed. Thanks to lead actor Salman. The dabangg Khan refused to share screen space with his archrival Shah Rukh Khan in any way.

However, when it came to sharing the spotlight with Hrithik Roshan and Sanjay Dutt, Salman did not seem to have a problem. In fact, Sallu insisted on having Karan Johar's Agneepath trailer as a part of his forthcoming Eid release.

Salman had asked Reliance not to include the Don 2 trailer in Bodyguard. In fact, when the producers tried to reason things out with the actor, telling him that both films (Bodyguard and Don 2) belonged to Reliance, he retorted, "Bodyguard is my film as well."

"Salman and SRK are not friends. It was obvious that Salman will not want the trailer of Shah Rukh Khan's film attached to Bodyguard. Salman would have said 'No' even if he had a guest appearance in the film. His war with SRK is far from over," said a source close to the Sallu starrer.

The SRK-Salman war started on July 16, 2008 at Katrina Kaif's 24th birthday bash in a suburban nightspot.

A small argument turned ugly when SRK allegedly commented on Salman's ex-girlfriend Aishwarya Rai.

While SRK's Don 2 trailer has been left out from Bodyguard, his good friend Karan Johar's Agneepath promo has been included. And again, it was Salman who took the call. "It would have made more sense for Reliance to include the promo of Don 2, since it releases this December as opposed to Agneepath that releases in 2012. but since Salman wanted it, the producers couldn't refuse," revealed a source.

Explaining why Salman chose Agneepath over Don 2, a source said, "Salman has been bonding with Karan Johar of late.

According to industry insiders, the actor will work in the Dharma Productions venture to be directed by Rensil D'Silva. Also, Agneepath stars Hrithik Roshan and Sanjay Dutt, two actors who had once had a spat with Salman but are now close to him."

The final print of Bodyguard that releases this Eid will now have trailers of Agneepath, Luv U Soniyo and Hollywood film Real Steel. "There is neither a trailer or a promo of Don 2 in Bodyguard. Salman did not want any mention of the SRK starrer in his film," confirmed a source close to Sallu's film.
