It is common knowledge that once-upon-a-time-buddies Shah Rukh Khan and Salman Khan haven’t seen eye-to-eye following their fall-out a couple of years ago. All talks of a truce have fizzled out and a cold war persists between the two superstars. It is interesting, then, to note how Shah Rukh teamed up with Priyanka Chopra at the recently concluded ‘Pan Bahar presents Zee Cine Awards 2012 powered by Hair & Care’ in Macau and took quite a few potshots at Salman.
As hosts of the awards ceremony, SRK and Piggy Chops were spoofing every movie nominated in the ‘Best Film’ category and Sallu’s Bodyguard was one amongst them. It all started with Priyanka showing up as Bodyguard Lovely Singh, her arms a good 6 inches away from her sides à la Salman’s trademark “macho” style. SRK naughtily suggested that “Lovely Singh” should reduce the amount of starch he uses for his clothes, that way his arms would stay straight. Priyanka went on to mimic Salman’s “international” accent. Shah Rukh also joked about why Salman’s character from the film is called ‘Lovely’ when his body is more like Bruce Lee? Jibes were made at how Salman’s shirt invariably tears itself up towards the climax of any film he does … ! All of this tomfoolery was followed by a hilarious dance to one of the Bodyguard tracks. Let’s hope Salman takes the comedy gag at his expense with a pinch of salt!
