What has gone wrong with the Sanjay Dutt-Salman Khan dosti? Apparently Ranbir Kapoor is responsible for the rift.
According to informed sources, Salman who has been avoiding Ranbir and staring him down, ever since the latter opted out of the relationship with Katrina Kaif, did not like the idea of Ranbir playing Sanjay Dutt in Raj Kumar Hirani's bio-pic.
That became a bone of contention between the two friends.
Says a source, "Everyone has been wondering why Salman who was so close to Sanjay Dutt has not even paid the lately incarcerated senior a visit after his prison-release. Salman Khan was even supposed to throw a party on his farm for Dutt. But backed off. The reason was Ranbir Kapoor. When Salman heard that Ranbir would be playing Sanjay Dutt in the bio-pic his blood boiled."
Apparently, Salman Khan has not spoken to Dutt about his displeasure regarding the choice of actor in the bio-pic.
But Dutt's friends say even if Salman conveyed his displeasure to Dutt it would have no effect. "Sanju likes Ranbir. Both Sanju and Hirani want Ranbir to play Dutt. And there is nothing that Salman can do about it," says a friend of Dutt.
That case rests uneasily.
