After a controversy that turned into a huge storm on social networking sites like Twitter and Facebook, Shahrukh Khan and Shirish Kunder have patched up their differences and are now friends again.
Apparently, it was Farah Khan’s brother Sajid Khan, with the help of SRK’s wife Gauri, who arranged a meeting at SRK’s residence Mannat and sorted out the differences.
Says Sajid Khan “I felt terrible about the ugly turn that the whole affair took. Shahrukh and Shirish had a fight, agreed. But the media didn’t have to play it up to the point of making it on the front of national newspapers.Do you know, when my sister Farah and Shirish got married, there were only three witnesses. Me, Sajid Nadiadwala and Shahrukh Khan. We’re family. And there’re bound to be differences between family members. Yes, Gauri (Khan) and I took the initiative. All of us met at Mannat over a meal and it was all sorted out. ”
A relieved Farah Khan too was happy that the whole issue was sorted out “I can’t begin to tell you how relieved I am. This had turned really ugly. And before it got uglier, my brother took matters into his hands. Full credit to Gauri for making the reconciliation happen. When my brother asked her where we should meet, she said Mannat, because she said it’s Farah’s home. I am so moved.
Talking about SRK, Farah said “I really liked what he said. He made us promise to wipe out all the bitterness of the last two years and start afresh. I feel like a big burden is off my back.”
While Shahrukh Khan restrained from making any public statements, Shirish Kunder tweeted saying “Shahrukh and I just met, had a heart to heart chat and have resolved all misunderstandings. All animosity is now sorted for good. Some incidents in our life when resolved makes relationships stronger than they were ever before.”
All is well that ends well!
