Salman Khan: Salman Khan said that he once declined actor Shah Rukh Khan’s offer to buy the mansion “Mannat” located in Mumbai. Salman said that his father Salim Khan had suggested that the house was too big for him.
Salman Khan and Shah Rukh Khan often lash out at each other in interviews and on social media. Recently, Shah Rukh also hinted that Salman might be a part of a song in his upcoming film Pathan, and said that working with him was a ‘brotherly experience’. In a recent interview, Salman spoke about the one thing Shah Rukh wanted that he had in his Mumbai mansion, Mannat, which Salman said was offered to him earlier, but he refused.
Shah Rukh Khan and Salman Khan have made cameos in each other’s films, and even co-starred in the 1995 film Karan Arjun. According to reports, actor Salman Khan may soon star in a thriller from filmmaker Aditya Chopra. Salman and Shah Rukh Khan share a close friendship, but there was a time a few years back, when they got into a fight at actor Katrina Kaif’s birthday party in 2008, after which they could not talk. When Salman was asked about one thing Shah Rukh Khan had that he wanted him to have, Salman said in an interview, “His “Mannat” is the bungalow for which I was first proposed. Papa (film producer and scriptwriter Salim Khan) said so bad house mein tum karoge kya (What will you do in such a big house). I want to ask Shahrukh, what do you do in such a big house? What does it do).”
Based in Bandra, Mumbai, Mannat is survived by Shah Rukh, wife and interior designer Gauri Khan and their three children – Aryan Khan, Suhana Khan and AbRam Khan. The six-storey haveli is designed by Gauri and is one of the most iconic celebrity homes of Bollywood. It houses art collectibles and family memorabilia along with luxurious amenities and is reportedly valued at around ₹200 crore. In recent years, both Salman and Shah Rukh have opened up about their long bond with each other. Earlier in June, Shah Rukh Khan celebrated 30 years of his Bollywood journey with his fans during an Instagram Live. During this, Shahrukh had said, ‘He (Salman) is like a brother. We don’t know which one of us is bigger. Each of us behaves like a big brother on different days. Whoever makes a mistake, the other plays the role of the elder brother.”
