It has been eight years since Ashutosh Gowariker and Sajid Khan had an ugly fight at the Screen awards. Both filmmakers have finally made up publicly on Twitter now and are claiming to be close friends. 

At the Screen awards in 2009, Gowariker had lambasted Khan and his choreographer-director sister Farah for allegedly insulting stars with his jokes as the host. Sajid Khan had hit back at him and, later, Farah Khan came to her brother's defence. 

The friendship was rekindled yesterday when Sajid Khan posted a picture from Gowariker’s wedding with Sunita. The picture has the Khan siblings posing with the groom and the bride. 

Sajid Khan himself took a dig at their spat in the caption which read, “Haha... 1988! Sunita n @TheFarahKhan look like teens @AshGowariker n i r pals since d 80s i guess our awardwala spat (09) is still talked about. (sic)"

Gowariker replied to the tweet late last night by reciprocating Sajid Khan’s invitation of friendship. He even wished the director for the next film in his Housefull franchise. He said, “Both of you are looking like Sweet Birds of Youth!! @TheFarahKhan People should let bygones be bygones! @SimplySajidK for #Housefull4 !” [sic] 

But that’s not all. Sajid Khan replied a few moments back saying, “I concur my friend.." However, for some reason, he deleted the tweet soon and posted another one which read, "I agree my friend..even ur looking 29yrs younger (sic)."
