Mumbai: There are no permanent friends or enemies in Bollywood and Anurag Kashyap would know this. The filmmaker who is known to have been quite brazen about his dislike for certain clans within the industry once, now seems to be warming up to the very same people.
Few weeks ago we saw him make amends with Arbaaz Khan at a party and now we hear that the filmmaker was seen spending some quality time with superstar Shah Rukh Khan.
Says a source, "Last week at a party for one of the upcoming awards SRK, Anurag, Kalki, Gulshan Deviah and Karan Johar were seen hanging out together. In fact they left the venue together. Everyone was surprised because it was a whole new gang bonding with each other."
Interestingly not too long ago, stories about trouble brewing between Anurag and SRK were doing the rounds, because the filmmaker apparently thought the actor wasn't the right choice for his film Bombay Velvet. Kashyap soon brushed off the rumours saying Aamir was always the first choice for the role.
However, a few days back at a press conference, Anurag said, "I would love to work with Shah Rukh and Hrithik. They are extremely talented." Adds the source, "After the party, the whole gang was spotted at SRK's Bandra bungalow. So it looks like there was some serious discussion going on."
Post Udaan, Karan Johar and Kashyap were also set to team up for Vikramaditya Motwane's next. Though that did not materialise, may be there's something bigger in store. Watch this space for more.
