Call them arch rivals or competitors, it is no secret that Salman and Shah Rukh cannot stand each to the point that one's presence at the same place irks the other.

Recently, the actors were in close vicinity, both shooting in their respective locations and managed to make it through the situation coolly.

Both were shooting in Goa. While Shah Rukh was shooting for "Chennai Express", Salman was busy for his home production "Mental".

"People shudder to imagine what would happen if SRK and Salman shared the same roof. It's an unwritten diktat that when one enters the venue, the other would promptly leave. It came as a surprise to know that both of them were in Goa, busy shooting for their films," Bollywood Mantra quoted its source as saying.

"Production people who were managing the respective films knew about the presence of the other party. Salman wrapped up his work and is back in Mumbai now. SRK is still continuing with his schedule without Deepika Padukone. Thankfully, not once did either he or Salman cross each other's paths," the source added.

Shah Rukh and Salman's rivalry dates back to the time when the latter was dating Aishwarya Rai and went on to create nuisance on the sets of 2003 flick "Chalte Chalte". Due to the commotion, Shah Rukh had Aishwarya replaced with Rani Mukherjee in the film.

Matters turned worse at Katrina Kaif's birthday party in 2008 where onlookers witnessed a fight between the two actors.

Their legendary rivalry doesn't seem to have affected Salman's brother Arbaaz, who openly said he is eager to work with SRK in the future.
