Ali Abbas Zafar and Salman Khan’s third collaboration Bharat released on June 5. And the film is turning out to be successful at the box office with earning around Rs 73. 30 crores, in just two days. With Ali and Salman’s team being a successful collaboration, rumours have now started doing rounds about everything not being okay between the two. Yes, it is being said that Ali Abbas Zafar and Salman Khan have had a fall out over the final edit of the film.
Rumour had it that both Salman and Ali had a heated argument at the superstar’s place about trimming the film according to Salman’s wish. Just to brush your memories after father Salim Khan’s suggestion it was reported that 25 minutes from the film were chopped off, and following this news, it was being said that Ali had already trimmed the film by 12 minutes, but Salman demanded to further cut it down by more 15 minutes and this did not go well with Ali. And when he refused for the same, Salman asked him to leave. Later reports of Ali teaming up with Shah Rukh Khan further added fuel to this fire.
But now the Bharat director has put a bucket of cold water on it, as he spoke to a web portal confirming that everything is fine between the two. “These are completely false and baseless rumours. Salman Bhai is like an elder brother to me and everyone knows we consider each other family. And everyone who’s spreading such reports, I just have one thing to tell. Salman and I have already discussed a couple of things and he will soon be spending a lot of time again with me on a project,” said Ali.
