Bollywood is a place where relationships are seen or rather used as business partnerships. No two persons are friends or enemies forever. Everybody is together for a reason, for a purpose and for their self-interest.
Shah Rukh Khan’s recent statement that “Sonu Sood, Jackie Chan my favourite men in the world” is purely business.

If you look back and dig out its Bollywood allegiances, even a blind would figure out Khan’s modus operandi – never swim against the tide, join the bandwagon.
In the beginning of his career, he was close to Chopra camp; Darr and DDLJ made history and then Shah Rukh did Dil To Pagal Hai and Mohabbaten with Yash Chopra and Co.
Later, he forged good rapport with Karan Johar. And both did good job in movies like Kuch Kuch Hota Hai, Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham, Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna, and My Name Is Khan. It was Janam Janam ka Saath for both.
But Shah Rukh ditched his bestie Karan, and he joined hands with Farah Khan, with whom he did entertaining flicks like Main Hoon Na, Om Shanti Om, and Happy New Year.
Now the superstar is praising his co-star Sonu Sood and Kung Fu master & international artist Jackie Chan. What Shah Rukh wants from the two is anybody’s guess. Maybe he is up to sign a couple of movies with Chan. You never know!
Shah Rukh has conveniently stopped speaking about his old pals Aditya Chopra, Karan, and Farah. His sudden U-turn may have surprised his fans as well as critics. Now only Shah Rukh can disclose what is behind the curtains.
