aba Siddique’s annual iftar party is the Bollywood equivalent of barging into your Muslim friends’ home to gorge on unlimited biryani once a year on Eid, and then ignoring him for the rest.  

This year, the event, which jostles with AB’s Holi party for the title of Douchebag Social Event of the Year, lacked the one PR twist that everyone and their grandmother keeps their eyes peeled for: the annual Khan-Khan hugathon between SRK and Sallu. For those who don’t know it, every year the Khan-Khan bhai-bhai saga plays out like a KJo drama, assuring everyone watching that all is indeed well in the Khan Caliphate we call Bollywood. Before your gossip sense starts tingling, and the filmy fanatic within you prepares for the apocalypse that is a Clash of the Khans, araam your areolas. Shah Rukh missed it because he was off shooting in America.
