What’s in a name?’ asked Shakespeare — implying that a rose, even if it is called by any other name, will still smell as sweet.
Well, Bollywood doesn’t subscribe to this view. Time and again two or more filmmakers/actors have been locked in bitter title battles. Sanjay Dutt and Salman Khan are reportedly in a silent war because Salman’s next film is titled Sher Khan and Sanju’s next is called Sher.
On the face of it, Sanju and Sallu are very cordial and even share a cuppa whenever their paths cross, like it did on the sets of Son of Sardaar. However, you cannot fail to sense an undercurrent of tension between these two actors, especially on account of this. Even music composer Himesh Reshammiya had to reportedly walk out of Sher because he owes allegiance first to ‘bhai’ (Salman) and only then to the rest of the industry.
