Salman Khan is angry. The reason is because his name has been drawn into the SRK-Shirish slapping incident though he is nowhere in the picture. A couple of days ago, a tabloid had reported that a concerned Salman Khan had called up his friend Shirish Kunder to show his support after Shah Rukh bashed him at Sanjay Dutt's party. As is well known, Salman and Shirish are good friends and both have a common rival – Shah Rukh.
Interestingly, when the report came out, Salman was surprised. Sources close to him have said that Sallu was clueless about the whole fight, especially considering the fact that he was not even in the country! Salman is shooting in faraway Cuba for 'Ek Tha Tiger' and the area doesn't even have a proper network. "How can he call Shirish to offer support?" asked the source.
Apparently, Salman's family is very upset at his name being used in the fight. Sallu too denied calling Shirish or anyone else regarding the incident.
It looks like the SRK-Shirish controversy will not die such an easy death despite the reported patch-up. If Salman could play a role in it even when he is not in the country, we wonder how things would have panned out had he been at the party!
