Badshah shared the backstage incident during an award show, narrating, “I met Shah Rukh Khan and Salman Khan at the backstage of an award show. I think they’d just had their patch up, apparently. I remember my manager telling me, ‘Shah Rukh sir is calling you.’ I went to meet him, Salman sir was also there. They were talking to each other, I was standing there looking at them. Later, food was served, and they fed me biryani. They were sharing anecdotes with each other, and I was listening to them. Then I had to leave.”
The friendship between Shah Rukh Khan and Salman Khan dates back to the 1990s when they shared screen space in films like Karan Arjun and Kuch Kuch Hota Hai.

The duo will also share the screen in the highly anticipated film Tiger 3, with Shah Rukh confirming his cameo appearance.
Meanwhile, Badshah, an ardent fan of Shah Rukh Khan, revealed during his appearance on Kaun Banega Crorepati Season 13 that it was Shah Rukh who inspired him to change his name. Originally known as Aditya Prateek Singh Sisodia, Badshah adopted his stage name after being deeply influenced by Shah Rukh Khan’s film “Badshah” released in 1999. He expressed his admiration for the superstar, stating, “I was a huge fan of Shah Rukh Khan sir, and around that time, his film ‘Badshah’ released. From then on, my stage name was Badshah. It did not take much of an effort.”
The heartwarming reunion of Shah Rukh Khan and Salman Khan, witnessed by Badshah, stands as a testament to the enduring power of friendship and the ability to mend strained relationships in the Bollywood fraternity.
