Royal ignore: Former best friends, Shah Rukh Khan and Arjun Rampal avoid each other
It was a busy weekend for the Bollywood stars who were zipping from one party to another to meet their various social commitments.
First up was actress Vidya Balan and UTV/Disney CEO Siddharth Roy Kapur’s glitzy wedding reception hosted by Karan Johar at UTV head Ronnie Screwvala and Zarina Mehta’s residence.
Next, a merry gang of actors and actresses danced off a sweat for the Police event before sailing into industrialist Mukesh Ambani's bash at his residence.
And given that many of these stars had shared not-so-great history congregated at the same place, there were plenty of nail-biting moments for onlookers, mostly hoping for fireworks.
But the stars were at their best civilised self. But few things happened is worth mentioning.
Shah Rukh Khan has always been in news for his relationship with friends and co-stars. After having a spat with Salman Khan and Shirish Kunder, now Shah Rukh Khan is constantly avoiding once good friend Arjun Rampal.
At Vidya-Siddharth's party all Arjun Rampal needed was to extend his arm and he could shake hands with Shah Rukh Khan and put to rest all those rumours of their friendship gone wrong.
But Arjun decided otherwise and kept his arms by his side and the two “simply saw through each other,” says an eye-witness.
SRK and wife Gauri who walked in after midnight were mingling with the rest of the Bollywood crowd but kept their distance from Arjum Rampal.
According to the latest buzz, Shah Rukh and Arjun Rampal were seen avoiding each other at the launch of Dabboo Ratnani's 2013 calendar.
Both Arjun and Shah Rukh feature regularly in the ace photographer's annual calendar.
Arjun and SRK who have been close buddies, timed their entry and exit to Dabboo's launch to avoid running in to each other.
Hrithik Roshan, who was part of the trio, brought in his 39th birthday with a party on-board a yacht off the coast of Mumbai. Arjun and wife Mehr Jessia were among the close knit of friends who joined in the party.
Among the guests actor Shah Rukh Khan's wife Gauri Khan attended the celebration but her famous husband was nowhere to be seen.
Interestingly, Arjun Rampal reportedly is getting pally with another big Khan of Bollywood - Salman Khan.
Now we need not get into details about the enmity Shah Rukh and Salman shares, right?
Is that the reason, why Shah Rukh is avoiding Arjun?
