Back in 1995 the two of the actors were best friends until the filmfare awards distribution. Both of them were nominated and SRK ended up winning the award. However, in Aamir’s opinion, there were frauds in distributing the awards, so the actor decided not to attend award ceremonies. The rivalry got pumped up in 2008 when Aamir Khan wrote on his blog "Shahrukh is licking my feet and I am feeding him biscuits every now and then. What more can I ask for? Now, before you jump to any conclusions let me add that Shahrukh is the name of our dog. And before you jump to any further conclusions let me add that I had nothing to do with naming him."  


8. Salman Khan And SRK

It is just another example of best friends to bitter enemies. The friendship bond between the two broke back in 2008 when something ambiguous happened in Katrina Kaif’s birthday party. After that, they had one of the most intense Bollywood rivalries, until they reunited again as friends in the marriage of Salman’s sister.
