On Wednesday (January 9) night, Hrithik Roshan brought in his 39th birthday with close friends from the industry on a luxury yacht. But the person conspicuous by his absence was Hrithik Roshan’s supposed close friend, Shah Rukh Khan.

However, his wife Gauri Khan, known to be good friends with Hrithik’s wife Sussanne, turned up.

A source close to Cineyug (organisers for the upcoming Star Screen Awards) says, “Shah Rukh Khan was rehearsing for his upcoming performance at the award ceremony at Bandra Kurla Complex till about 7 am on Thursday morning. The award function is in a couple of days, and Shah Rukh is hosting the event, and has an elaborate performance.” A friend close to Shah Rukh Khan, however, says that the actor was in Wai shooting for Chennai Express. The actor also had a media event to attend on Thursday morning (January 10) for a cell phone brand.

However, while professional commitments may be the apparent reason, there may have been more to Shah Rukh Khan’s absence. Hrithik’s friend Arjun Rampal was one of those involved in hosting the party. And talks of a rift between SRK and Arjun have been doing the rounds lately. Interestingly, the two actors avoided each other even at the launch of celebrity photographer Dabboo Ratnani’s 2013 calendar earlier this week.

“It might have been a coincidence, but Hrithik Roshan and Arjun Rampal were seen bonding at the launch. And Shah Rukh Khan made any entry only after the two of them left,” says a guest at the event. Shah Rukh Khan and Arjun have worked together in Om Shanti Om (2007) and RA.One (2011) and have been known to be good friends. However, talks of a rift started after Ra.One.

At the same time, a tabloid also reported Arjun’s increasing proximity to the rival Khan – Salman Khan. We tried to contact Shah Rukh Khan for a comment, but he could not be reached. His spokesperson refused to comment on his behalf.

'Lakshmi' review: It is weighed down by its 'standard-issue' treatment

In Lakshmi, writer-director Nagesh Kukunoor takes the unfortunate true story of an underage girl sold off to the flesh trade, and delivers a deliberately disturbing film that's often hard to watch. It's a tricky slope, films about exploitation and abuse. For as we've learnt from watching Madhur Bhandarkar's movies, there's a thin line between depicting harsh realities on screen, and in that process exploiting the very tragedy and the victim. We first meet Lakshmi (Monali Thakur), a 13-year-old traded by her alcoholic father for Rs 30,000, huddled in the back of a truck as it barrels through an Andhra forest.
