Bollywood actress Deepika Padukone, who is on a high after delivering three back-to-back hits, is considered close and loyal to superstar Shah Rukh Khan. Not only did SRK launch her in 'Om Shanti Om' but also gave her the biggest hit of her career - 'Chennai Express'. Hence, it comes as a surprise that she is now making efforts to get closer to SRK's rival Salman Khan.
While Deepika was shooting with Shah Rukh Khan for Happy New Year at Mehboob studios, she took time out of her busy schedule to meet and chat with Salman Khan. The 'Dabbang' actor was also shooting an ad film in another set in the same studio.
A DNA report says that the pretty actress went across to say 'hello' to Salman. She chatted with Salman for about half-an-hour. It was courageous for her to leave her hero SRK to meet his biggest rival, knowing that even after the 'truce' between the two Khans all is not fine between the two. Even director Farah Khan, who is a good friend of Salman's, refrained from meeting Salman as her hero SRK was on the set.
It seems Salman and Deepika have great admiration for each other. While Deepika has expressed a desire to work with Salman many times and will act opposite him in Sooraj Bharjatya's Bade Bhaiya, Salman too has been praising her a lot.
