MUMBAI: Remember the rivalry that was on between Bollywood actors Shah Rukh Khan and Hrithik Roshan? It seems to have resurfaced again.
The incident dates back to as early as 2000 when, Hrithik Roshan won the best actor award for his debut film, ‘Kaho Naa… Pyaar Hai’ going ahead of his counterpart Shah Rukh Khan who was nominated for his splendid performance in ‘Mohabbatein’.
It is since then that the rivalry between these two actors has been the talking point in Bollywood. Now, Shah Rukh Khan surprised his fans by launching the new song ‘Titli’ from his upcoming film ‘Chennai Express’ on the same day as Hrithik Roshan unveiled the first look of the much anticipated film ‘Krrish 3’.
While Hrithik Roshan’s event was well planned, fans were excited to see Shah Rukh Khan abuzz on Twitter posting updates about the new song and answering questions to his fans.
The heart wants to go on…but the shoulder sore with typing. Will put up the song in 30 mins or so. Take someone u lov for a drive tonite.

With so much buzz on social media already for ‘Chennai Express’ and ‘Krrish 3’, we wonder whether the rivalry will continue post the release as well. For now, it seems SRK feels safer with Hrithik around.
@iHrithik Good to have Krrish back! Already feel safer. All my love to you SuperDuper Hero.
