The Dabangg and Besharam actors were at the same venue at the same time, so what happened jab they met?

Salman Khan and Ranbir Kapoor have a lot in common, while one is a reigning superstar the other is a rising star. Both are known for their relationships and have a huge fan base. Not to forget Sallu’s ex-girlfriend Katrina Kaif is RK Jr’s alleged girlfriend now. So, when Ranbir and Salman came together for the Republic day parade together in Mumbai onlookers wondered if they would witness fireworks in the otherwise calm setting. While Ranbir got a loud cheering from the crowd that had gathered to catch the parade, it was the Jai Ho star who was the real show stopper. The Bombay Velvet actor chose kids for company, while the Kick star had his entourage of ladies and his bodyguard accompany him in the car. We weren’t surprised though, for we have witnessed the madness when Salman steps out on the streets and this day was no different. While RK Jr looked dapper in a Nehru jacket, the uber cool Khan chose a rust coloured shirt and relaxed in the front seat.

Did the duo come face to face? Well, it seems both steered clear of any meeting in public and were successful in avoiding an awkward moment.

The other stars who participated were Preity Zinta, Sushmita Sen, Aarti Chabria, Shreyas Talpade and Poonam Dhillon. The Republic day ceremony was telecast on Doordarshan in HD.
