Bollywood superstar Salman Khan and Saif Ali Khan share a great bond of friendship. The two starred together in Sooraj R. Barjatya’s family drama film Hum Saath Saath Hain and their bromance was much loved by the audience and the critics. However, things did not remain the same.
Much like everyone’s friendship, Salman and Saif’s friendship too had its ups and downs. They now have a great bond but there was a time when they were not on good terms. Their relationship soured for a while but the reason behind their tiff has been the secret all these years.

In an old interview, Saif Ali Khan spoke about the soured relationship with Salman Khan. As reported by IBTimes, the Sacred Games star said, “Over time, there have been some differences that have come up, which he and I best know about and that will always remain between him and me only. He is someone I have worked with, spent a lot of time with and he is someone I greatly admire as a brother. And that will never change.”
Back in 2015, superstar Salman invited Saif for the special screening of Bajrangi Bhaijaan. The film also starred Kareena Kapoor Khan in the lead role. When Saif was asked if Salman invited him because of Kareena, he replied, “I hope not. Salman, I know, would not do anything just for the sake of it
I have known him longer than I have known Kareena. So I would hope that our equation is not dependent on her and I felt very nice about it. I have always had the highest respect and love for Salman. I hadn’t spoken to him for the longest time and was very happy to hear from him.”
Saif Ali Khan is the recipient of several accolades, including a National Film Award and seven Filmfare Awards, and received Padma Shri, the fourth highest Indian civilian award, in 2010. He has been noted for his performances in a range of film genres—from crime dramas to action thrillers and comic romances—and his film roles have been credited with contributing to a change in the concept of a Hindi film hero.
Saif Ali Khan was married to his first wife, Amrita Singh, for thirteen years, after which he married actress Kareena Kapoor. He has four children—two with Amrita Singh and two with Kareena Kapoor. In addition to film acting, he is a frequent television presenter, stage show performer, and the owner of the production companies Illuminati Films and Black Knight Films.
While the real reason behind their tiff is not known but reports claim that it was the result of Salman’s involvement in the blackbuck poaching case. It is only after that the two remained aloof from each other for many years.
