Salman and Ajay revive old memories
Salman Khan and Ajay Devgan aren’t the best of friends but they do share a warm camaraderie.
The two actors, who are as different as chalk and cheese, got along famously on the sets of Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam in 1998. Aishwarya Rai, the film’s heroine, also shared a good rapport with both her leading men, as with Bhansali himself. A decade later, Salman and Ajay find themselves on the sets of Vipul Shah’s London Dreams, where they have picked up the threads of their relationship.
Vipul confirms that his leading men bonded on the sets in London, but Ajay says, “I don’t know if there is any special chemistry between Salman and me. That is for the audience to judge. Chemistry is something that is visible when a film is successful. Otherwise it doesn’t show.” However, he confirms that Salman is one of the most hassle-free co-stars. “He never interferes with a script or his co-stars and does exactly what is told to him. In that sense, there wasn’t any insecurity between the two of us.”
The story goes that one evening after pack-up, the two sat down for drinks and when they got tipsy, sentiments ran high. A unit member who was present says the two stars went back to the Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam days. Ajay admits that Salman and he did share a few drinks but declined to mention what they then discussed “because it is very personal”. Now the two stars are not drinking together “for health reasons”. However, sources on the set snidely say that it’s not so much “health” as “reasons of the heart”. Any idea what they could have talked about, then?
