In the same interview, Sanjay Leela Bhansali revealed Salman provides him with true friendship. He said that although they had had their moments while working, and things might not have fallen to pieces. Salman called him one month later and vice versa. The filmmaker added that although they speak once every six months, they go back to there where they ended, and it feels the same. Bhansali said that this is what true friendship is all about. SLB said:

"That is what a true friend is all about. At work, we may have had our moments and things might not have fallen into place, but after one month, he’s calling me, and I’m calling him, and we talk. That is a friend. In that sense, I’m fortunate enough to have that friend who, once in 6 months, we’ll speak, and we’ll start exactly from where we left off. But mostly, I love all of them when I’m working with them.”
