Shah Rukh Khan, the charismatic Bollywood icon, is renowned for his wit and brilliance on and off the screen. While he seldom loses his cool, there was a time when media buzzed with reports of his heated encounters, from the infamous Wankhede Stadium incident to a public spat with Salman Khan and even a reported slap on Shirish Kunder at a party.
During a candid interview on Aap Ki Adalat, SRK addressed these controversies. He openly acknowledged his mistake at Wankhede, offering a sincere apology. The conversation then shifted to the time he clashed with Salman Khan over Katrina Kaif and allegedly slapped Shirish Kunder.
In his characteristically humorous style, Shah Rukh Khan attributed these incidents to astrological misalignments, saying, “I didn’t believe in astrology before. When unfavorable times arrive, when Rahu comes into play, things take an unexpected turn. It may sound unscientific, but I was going through a challenging phase.”
The reported rift with Shirish Kunder stemmed from a social media joke about the budget and box office of “Ra.One.” The tension escalated to a party where SRK allegedly confronted Kunder, resulting in a physical altercation until Sanjay Dutt intervened.
The well-documented feud between Shah Rukh Khan and Salman Khan also unfolded at a party, with speculations about an indecent remark concerning Katrina Kaif. Though the details remain unclear, both actors have moved on, focusing on their respective careers.
The silver lining lies in the fact that these Bollywood stars have chosen to ‘let bygones be bygones.’ In the present day, Salman Khan and SRK continue to dominate the screens as Tiger and Pathaan, and SRK has rekindled his friendship with Farah Khan. This journey through past tiffs, astrology, and renewed friendships reflects the resilience and evolution of Bollywood’s iconic figures.
