The bust up is said to have occurred late last night at the party when an irked SRK allegedly roughed up his former friend's husband, who has been very vocal against the filmstar.
Despite repeated attempts Shahrukh remained unavailable for comment.
Farah and Kunder spoke about the incident in a statement but denied they were going to pursue the matter with police.
"Shahrukh has always told me that physical abuse is the worst way to sort out a problem, and that it means the person who's hitting has either a personal or professional crisis going on. So it saddens me to see him doing the same," Farah said in a statement.
Kunder took to his Twitter account to say: "Thanks for all your concern & wishes. We are very grateful. Contrary to rumours, we have no intention of filing a FIR or police
Once very good friends, Farah choreographed SRK in several of his films and directed him in "Main Hoon Naa" and "Om Shanti Om" but their friendship soured after she cast
Akshay Kumar in "Tees Maar Khan" in 2010.
The actor's enmity with Kunder apprently stems from the days when he refused to do latter's "Joker".
Kunder, who also once used to be close to SRK, occasionally blasts the actor on his twitter page, recently callin his sci-fi 'Ra.One' "a 150 cr firework fizzle".
The other celebrities present at the party, however, have come out in support of King Khan, saying Kunder had it coming.
"Shahrukh is supr rockin.. Good he gave it 2 shirish. people shud learn 2 b grateful to king khan, aftrall he has been so supportive 2 farah. Glad@iamsrk told shirish off n put him in place. srk has done so much 4 farah. they shud b grateful n not abusing srk (sic)," Ameesha Patel tweeted.
"I was present at Sanj's party & Without Any Bias I Fully Support Shah Rukh (sic)," celebrity photographer Dabboo Ratnani tweeted.
