It’s no big secret that the once friendly Shah Rukh Khan and Salman Khan have been in a cold war for a few years now with no signs of an end. Interestingly, as hosts of the 2012 Zee Cine Awards, King Khan and Priyanka Chopra took quite a few jabs at Salman Khan’s “Bodyguard” while spoofing every movie nominated in the Best Film category.
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.
Hopefully Salman Khan takes it all lightly as harmless fun! Keep it locked on Urban Asian for more juicy tidbits from the Zee Cine Awards! Don’t forget to catch it on Zee TV and Zing this weekend!
