New Delhi: In a late night rant on Twitter, actor Salman Khan has warned followers to troll his fellow Khans Shah Rukh and Aamir at their own peril, even threatening to quit the social networking site. For decades, the three Khans have formed three of the Bollywood universe's central suns, with satellites of lesser stars and entire planetary systems orbiting around them. At 50 or almost 50, Salman, SRK and Aamir still command box office crores like no other stars.

A long time rivalry between Salman and SRK was resolved last year and since then, the film industry's ruling trinity have presented a united front to the world. Dirctor-producer Sajid Nadiadwala even went as far as saying on the sidelines of IIFA weekend that the Khans had 'always been friends' and ascribed the widely reported feud to 'acting.'

Be that as it may, SRK and Aamir revealed the first look of Salman's new film Bajrangi Bhaijaan on Twitter just weeks ago in what was seen as a huge PR win for the actor in specific and Bollywood in general. Now, since one good Khan deserves another, Salman has returned the favour by calling out his fans over their public squabbling about the order of Khans at the top three positions of the box office charts.

Speaking on behalf of SRK and Aamir as well, the actor sent out this strong message:

He questioned those using 'false identities' and said in no uncertain terms that he would leave Twitter if the trolling continued.

These are Salman's tweets - an entire timeline full of them (see why we called it a rant?):

Salman is the second Khan to tangle publicly with trolls. In March, an angry outburst from SRK described some abusive posts from others on his timeline as 'dirty crap,' and asked - "Obviously you don't have b***s in your pockets or elsewhere. So are you just excited to be on my TL?"

In a live chat Twitter chat some months later, he listed being asked about his relationship with Salman as one of the questions he wished away.
