Shah Rukh Khan has been shying away from commenting on his much publicised hug with Salman Khan but the actor says they have become more mature and their relationship is no longer about oneupmanship.
"It has gone beyond this (oneupmanship). There is no question of bowing or making him bow now. It may have been the case two-three years ago. Whether he should speak first or I should... we have become more mature now," SRK said while replaying to Rajat Sharma during his show Aap Ki Adalat on India TV, to be telecast tomorrow.
The two actors fell out after a fight at Salman's ex-girlfriend, Katrina Kaif's birthday party in 2008 but they were seen hugging each other at MLA Baba Siddique's Iftaar party this July, sparking speculation that they were friends again.
When Sharma asked whether he would invite Salman to watch his upcoming release Chennai Express, Shah Rukh said this may happen in future.
"Even I am not watching Chennai Express this Eid as I am celebrating the festival... but actually most certainly, if there is an Eid function at my house or they have a function in their house, then invitations will go from both sides. It will happen someday. We will be more mature, either he will come or I will go to his house. everything would be fine." Shah Rukh, who worked with Salman in films like Karan Arjun, Kuch Kuch Hota Hai, Hum Tumhare Hain Sanam and Har Dil Jo Pyar Karega, said he respected Salman as an actor and star.
"I have great respect for him, not only as a friend and as a family but as a star and as an actor. They helped me when I first came to Bollywood though I am the senior."
