While the whole Shah Rukh Khan and Shirish Kunder drama was happening there was another bit of information floating around that only added to the on going drama.
It was reported that Salman Khan, who is currently shooting in Cuba, had called Shirish Kunder as soon as he had heard the news of his ex-best friend beating him up and lending his support.
But a source close to Salman Khan denied that Salman had ever made any such calls.
“It's really strange how bhai's name has gotten dragged into this. He hasn't called anyone. Salman doesn't even have network where he shoots. We haven't been speaking to him often also. He wasn't even aware of the fight... how can he call Shirish to offer support? When we called the newspaper to check about their source, we were told that Shirish told them about Salman's call to him. But shouldn't they have checked with him or someone from his side? Salim uncle is very upset about Salman's name being used in this fight,” said the source.
After many tried a daily did manage to get in touch with Salman Khan whose has phone has been switched off for few days. When contacted, Salman Khan denied of ever making a call to Shirish Kunder.
“I am filming in Cuba. I am not using my phone here. I haven't called anyone and no one has called me. If you are printing this also say hello to my mom and dad,” he said and hung up.
