SRK slapped Shirish Kunder is common knowledge, thanks to once good friend and famous director Farah Khan’s admission. The director of ‘Main Hoon Na’ not only confirmed that her husband was hit by the angry superstar but also seemed surprised at his action since the actor has a reputation of maintaining a calm façade, no matter the situation. “SRK always told me that physical abuse is the worst way to sort out an issue. It saddens me to see him do the same,” she said latter.
Onlookers though claim that the signs of an impending fight were all too evident. To begin with ever since Farah broke her ties with King Khan by casting Akshay Kumar in ‘Tees Maar Khan’, Shirish has never missed a chance at taking a dig at the star – be it for his film ‘Don 2’ or calling ‘Ra.One’ the ‘150 crore firework fizzle’. The final straw of course was Shirish’s nasty remarks at Sanjay Dutt’s success party on Sunday night. Already bogged down with financial losses, a bad 2011 film-wise and no awards, the remarks were enough to egg the star to slap the ‘Joker’ director. However, this is not the first time in this year that SRK has shown the sign of losing it. The ‘Don’ at a recent award function seemed rude to the critic of a well-known newspaper who presented him the people’s choice award. And in another took nasty dig against fellow artiste Vidya Balan.
