Salman Khan and Ranbir Kapoor have never seen each other eye to eye. The latter has dated Salman Khan’s long term girlfriend Katrina Kaif which only increased the hostility.
However, this is not the main reason for the actors’ feud. According to reports, the cold war existed even before Ranbir made his Bollywood debut.
Sources claim Ranbir Kapoor met Salman Khan at a renowned pub in Mumbai during a party. The Rockstar and Sultan got into a very nasty verbal argument which took a turn for the worse when Salman Khan reportedly slapped Ranbir in full public view.
Ranbir left the party immediately, feeling embarrassed for himself. Salman Khan’s father, Salim Khan later sent in a written apology to Ranbir’s father Rishi Kapoor. The elders buried the hatchet and called a truce between the two actors.
Later, when Ranbir and Katrina’s relationship became public knowledge the rift between Salman and Ranbir only worsened. Salman has repeatedly taken jibes at Ranbir Kapoor on National television and even went on to call him a ‘puppy’ as an insult.
Ranbir Kapoor’s father, the legendary Rishi Kapoor passed away this month after a cancer relapse. While Salman Khan is under lockdown with family at their Panvel farmhouse.
