In an unlikely encounter, Salman Khan and Abhishek Bachchan almost bumped into each other in Mumbai's Mehboob studio recently.
Salman Khan was shooting for 'Dabangg 2' while Abhishek had dropped in for a promotional programme pertaining to his latest release 'Bol Bachchan', reports Asian Age.
Both the actors maintained an awkward silence for about a minute, but eye witnesses claim, that Abhishek made a mature gesture and went to Salman and both shook hands and hugged each other. The duo were later seen sharing coffee and deep in conversation on the sets of Dabangg 2.
Actually, Salman used to be close to the Bachchan family till Abhishek tied the knot with Aishwarya. After Aishwarya entered the Bachchan household, Abhishek started maintaining his distance with Salman.
For the uninitiated, Aishwarya Rai and Salman Khan had a raging affair when the duo were filming Sanjay Leela Bhansali's 'Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam'. The Aishwarya-Salman affair had generated a big storm and there were ugly rumours of Salman Khan physically abusing her and even hounding the actress after the two had parted ways in March 2002.
So, is this the new beginning in Salman-Abhishek friendship chapter? Watch this space.
