It has been suggested that Bollywood is divided into two camps following the infamous falling-out between the stars, with individuals forming allegiances either to Shah Rukh Khan or to Salman.
Speaking to PTI, the Dabangg 2 star denied that such divisions existed, saying: "There is no groupism at all... I do my own work. I don`t think there is any groupism. I don't follow anyone's life.
"If anyone comes to talk or meet me, I will talk to them or meet them nicely. I don't care who is whose friend and all. It doesn't matter to me at all."
It was recently reported that Arjun Rampal has been building a relationship with Salman following a falling-out with Shah Rukh because his scenes were cut in Ra One.
Rampal is set to make a guest appearance on Salman's reality TV show Bigg Boss.
When asked about a rift between Rampal and Shah Rukh, Salman commented: "I don't think... it is that way at all. I am not even aware if there is any fight or whatever [between them]. I don't think [that Arjun is closer to me]. I just met him at Sanjay Diwan`s party. We just spoke for two minutes."
Shah Rukh and Salman were allegedly involved in a brawl at a party in 2008, after which their friendship is said to have ended.
The two actors were seen interacting at the premiere of Jab Tak Hai Jaan, held in honour of Yash Chopra, prompting reports of a reconciliation between the two. Shah Rukh Khan, however, refuted the speculation, saying that any reconciliation would be personal and would not take place on a public platform.
