Shahrukh Khan and Shirish Kunder in a war of blows
Shahrukh Khan and Farah Khan’s husband, Shirish Kunder have never been best of friends. But what transpired on the night of Sanjay Dutt’s party was something none of us had expected.
Sanjay Dutt hosted a success party at Aurus lounge, Juhu to revel the success of the film Agneepath and his much acclaimed his role in it. It was at around 4.30 a.m. that Shah Rukh Khan entered the party in a sozzled state after attending the 57th Idea Filmfare awards.
As he entered, Shirish Kunder started following him. He even followed him to the washroom. He made sly remarks and kept triggering him. When it got out of hand, SRK moved towards Kunder and roughed him up. He tugged at his hair and pulled him towards the ground. He pulled his tee shirt and also abused him, giving him a piece of his mind. He warned him before raising his hand but Kunder just dint stop. Their drunk states worsened the situation and led to the brawl.
Since the assault got out of control, Baba Dewan, the owner of Aurus intervened and asked them to stop. SRK asked him to stay away but he persisted. Eventually, Sanjay Dutt came to Kunder’s rescue and pulled Shah Rukh away or it would have prolonged. Shirish Kunder left the party immediately after this incident.
The reason for this scuffle is unknown yet. People say it is because of Kunder’s tweet making snide comments on SRK’s movie, Ra.one. He had tweeted, “I just heard a 150 crore firework fizzle”, since Ra.one was an extremely expensive movie which bombed at the box office. This fight could also be the result of more recent events that came into play because of the rumours about Priyanka and Shah Rukh.
Shahrukh Khan and Shirish Kunder have a history of animosity. Shirish is married to Shah Rukh’s closest friend in the industry, Farah Khan. Farah and his strong friendship fell apart a year back. Since then they have been on bad terms. It is also believed that Shirish was never too fond of Shah Rukh. In fact he has always been casting Akshay Kumar or Salman Khan in his movies and did not consider his wife’s opinions when she did not support him with his casting decisions. Kunder was partially the reason for SRK and Farah’s fall out. SRK refused Tees Maar Khan, citing a poor script and in this manner Kunder managed to instigate her against Shah Rukh, her best friend in the film industry.
When this fight occurred, Farah was shooting all night for Bela Sehgal’s Shirin Farhad Ki Nikal Padi. She got to know of it only when she returned home next morning. She was extremely hurt and went on record and said , “Shah Rukh has always told me that physical abuse is the worst way to sort out a problem, and that it means the person who’s hitting has either a personal or professional crisis going on. It saddens me to see him doing the same.”
Rumour has it, that Sanjay Dutt too joined Shah Rukh in the brawl. But he denied it saying, “I didn’t join in the fight. I sorted out the fight between Shah Rukh and Kunder.”
Apparently Salman, Shah Rukh’s faithful enemy, heard of this fight in Cuba. Instantly, he called and inquired about the fight.
Most of industry people have openly tweeted and gone on record, displaying their support towards Shah Rukh and stating how Farah and Shirish should be grateful to him for having done so much to settle their filmy careers by starring in Main Hoon Na and Om Shanti Om and also giving monetary help. With Salman involved too, this sure is going to lead to a War of Thrones. Let’s hope the best man wins.
