Salman managed to go through his life at the most difficult moments Aamir experienced, despite the fact that Aamir did not like the superstar at the time.

One of the closest friendships in the Hindi movie industry is that between Aamir Khan and Salman Khan. Unmatched camaraderie, unquestionable power, and a devoted fan base characterise these two superstars. However, once they shared a screen in Andaz Apna Apna, their bond developed considerably later. The performers had a tense relationship throughout the movie, and Aamir was extremely public about his dislike of the actor. Regardless of how many shows they performed on together in the 1990s.

The Laal Singh Chaddha actor declared his dislike of Bhai during one of his interviews. He also stated clearly that despite his dislike for the superstar at the time, Salman managed to get by in life amid Aamir’s most trying moments.

This touching admission was made by Aamir Khan during a Koffee With Karan episode. I had a really awful experience dealing with him,” he remarked. I didn’t like him and thought he was arrogant, uncaring, and a lot of other things. I’ve run into him over the years, and after my time working on AAA, I just wanted to avoid him.

The Thugs of Hindostan actor continued to describe their bond by saying, “But he entered my life at a time when I was at my lowest. I was just imprisoned in my house for approximately a year and a half. I was sliding downward. I then kind of ran into him again at that point, and he said, “I’m going to come over.” He arrived home, sat down with me, and we started drinking… and a related matter. It started off that way and developed into something else.

In the admission, Aamir Khan also attributed the development of his new friendship with Salman Khan to a shift in his lifestyle. I think I also relaxed a lot, I think I was quite tense, he added. I believe he also matured. We so served as a kind of counterbalance to one another in many aspects, and when we got together this time, we hit a chord, which developed into a relationship and a fondness.

Since Andaz Apna Apna, Aamir and Salman have not collaborated, but the actors continue to keep up their friendship and the bond they formed. Aamir, Shah Rukh, and Salman Khan reportedly bonded over cocktails and conversations till the small hours of the morning at Galaxy Apartments, when it was reportedly advised to Aamir not to take a protracted vacation from acting.

While Salman Khan is preparing for Tiger 3, followed by a Karan Johar movie and Tiger Vs. Pathaan, on the work front, Aamir, who was set to star in the Campeones remake, withdrew because he said he needed to spend time with his family.
