Shah Rukh is all set to feature on “Bigg Boss: Double Trouble” on December 19 and 20 this month, coinciding with the release of his film “Dilwale” on December 18. A promo of the episode with Shah Rukh and Salman reprising their “Karan Arjun” characters and mouthing those dialogues has created substantial buzz for the episode.
But Shah Rukh said: “More than reprising the ‘Karan Arjun’ scene, it’s just nice to be with Salman always. We’ve spent a lot of personal moments together, but we’re shooting after a long time. We were together for 3-4 hours so it was nice. We spoke more and shot for the promo for only one to one and half hour. But it was fun to be with him.”
He also sang the “Ye Bandhan To Pyaar Ka Bandhan Hai” song from their film to underscore the kind of friendship they share.
In the promo, they’re also taking a dig at their own on and off friendship by saying that in friendship “unnis-bees chalta hai” (ups and downs occur). The bonding between the two has grown recently as both have been promoting each other’s films on social media and even meeting up.
Asked about his views on Salman’s acquittal in the 2002 accident case, Shah Rukh said: “On a very personal level, not getting into anything bigger or generic, he’s my friend, my colleague and we know each other since several years. And if something good happens to him, all of us are also going to be happy.
“In whichever way the judgment has gone, I think it is positive for him so we feel happy for that. But I haven’t spoken to him, we’ve just been working so whenever I find a bit of time, I’ll go and meet him.”
The two superstars who reside close to each other, have also worked together in “Hum Tumhare Hain Sanam” and “Kuch Kuch Hota Hai”.
