Happy times are here for Bollywood actor Shah Rukh Khan and he is ready to celebrate it in style.

The actor has decided to throw a lavish iftar party at his Bandra (Mumbai) residence, Mannat and invited all his friends to join the merriment.

This open invitation raised curiosity whether SRK will extend his invitation to colleague Salman Khan after their much hyped hug.

The world for Bollywood fans went in a tizzy when arched rival Shah Rukh and Salman bumped into each other in an iftar party on July 21 and Salman extending an olive branch hugged his nemesis.

Shah Rukh obliged the gesture, shook hands and later the two also posed with the host of the party to the delight of the shutterbugs.

This sent shock waves within the film industry and speculations about the end of rivalry spread like wildfire.

No one except the two knows whether the once friends-turned-foe are friends again.

During promotional tour of 'Chennai Express' SRK refused to talk about the 'hug' episode and his relationship with Salman.

"The personal relationships that I share and altercations and issues and love and the discussions that I have...Me nor Salman, neither of any of us have ever talked about it in public. We won't begin to do that now."

It remains to be seen whether Salman makes it to the guest list and even if he does will he be able to make time to join the party.

It is reported that Salman will be in London to start shooting for his next movie 'Kick'. The schedule has already suffered delay in kick-off due to Salman's legal tangles.

In all likelihood Salman might be in London shooting during Eid on August 9.

Salman and Shah Rukh were not on talking terms after an incident at Bollywood actress Katrina Kaif's birthday bash in 2008.

On the other hand, after going through some rough patch all seem to have fallen into place for Shah Rukh and he wants to celebrate.

What better way to celebrate than a grand iftar party on the auspicious occasion of Eid.

Just a few weeks ago a concerned Shah Rukh announced the arrival of his premature third son AbRam, who was not keeping well, but is now regaining his health.

SRK is also recuperating from his shoulder surgery and the storm about alleged affair with Priyanka Chopra has also passed.

But besides all these Shah Rukh has another reason to be happy. His next film 'Chennai Express' is scheduled to hit the marquee on Eid August 9.

Earlier it was scheduled to be released on Aug 8 but when the Eid dates were announced in India the production team decided to postpone the release by one day.
