Bollywood superstars Shah Rukh Khan and Ajay Devgn might have had their bit of rivalry, but, off late, the two seem to have set aside their differences and have come out to support each other and their movies.
Ahead of the release of his movie Pathaan, Shah Rukh Khan thanked Ajay Devgn for supporting him. In one of Shah Rukh's #AskSRK session on Twitter, a user asked Shah Rukh his response on Ajay Devgn, who called the advance booking of Pathan terrific. Shah Rukh responded by saying: "Ajay has been a pillar of support and love to me and my family for years. He is a wonderful actor and a beautiful human being. Strong and silent."

Ajay Devgn returned the favour by thanking Shah Rukh.. "Dear @iamsrk, thank you for your love and presence. I value the bond we share as much as you do. Pathan collections look poised to go through the roof. I'm happy that as an industry things are looking good for us," he wrote on Twitter.
