Remember the (in)famous fight between Salman Khan and Vivek Oberoi in 2003 when Vivek accused Salman Khan of calling him up 41 times in the night and threaten him of dire consequences? Vivek was dating Salman's ex Aishwarya Rai then. And then that press conference! 

It's been 16 years since then- and Vivek made a few attempts thereafter to mend the broken bridge. However, Salman did not bend and eventually Vivek too gave up.

Now, the stage had been set in Sri Lanka where the two warring actors could have made peace. A certain Shaikh Faisal, was a bit too excited to celebrate his birthday this year. So, he decided that he needs to invite Bollywood faces every day and make a big event of it. Coverage milti, naam hota- aur kaun yeh sab nahin chahta?

And hold on! The highlight of Faisal's ambitious plan was to invite Salman and Vivek on the main day, that is on his birthday- Aug 5.

But, unfortunately, none of the two agreed to attend. 

Was it that they checked out the invitee's list and took the decision accordingly?

Did Faisal want to pull off a Baba Siddique (who made Shah Rukh and Salman patch up in 2013 at his party) and make Vivek and Salman patch up? This question is valid because Faisal knows the history of Salman's equation with Vivek, and has it that both actors are quite close to Faisal. 
Just in case you're interested, Arbaaz Khan's ladylove Giorgia Andriani attended the birthday week celebration on Aug 3 and Aditya Roy Kapur became the Guest of Honor on August 5. If someone's meat is someone's poison, isn't it true vice versa too?
