It was a never hidden fact that since the release of Karan’s ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’ and Ajay Devgan’s ‘Shivaay’, the 25-year-old friendship between Karan Johar and Kajol has come to its dead-end. The war of words was seen on the series of tweets when self proclaimed film Critic Kamal R. Khan revealed that he was given 25 Lacks by Karan to write in favour of Ranbir Kapoor-Anushka Sharma starter.
However, both Kajol and Karan chose to keep mum about the situation. But, recently in his book ‘The Unsuitable Boy’, Karan finally opened about his relationship with Kajol. He quoted:
“I don’t have a relationship with Kajol anymore. We’ve had a fallout. Something happened that disturbed me deeply which I will not talk about because it’s something that I like to protect and I feel it would not be fair to her or to me. After two and a half decades, Kajol and I don’t talk at all. We just acknowledge each other, say ‘hello’ and walk past.
The problem was actually never between her and me. It was between her husband and me, something which only she knows about, he knows about, and I know about. I want to keep it at that. I don’t really want to say what transpired. But I did feel that she needed to apologize for something she didn’t do. I felt that if she is not going to acknowledge 25 years of friendship, if he wants to support her husband then that’s her prerogative. At some outer level I understood it, but I just couldn’t myself in her life anymore. It’s been months we haven’t spoken to each other.
Prior to the release of Ae Dil Hai Mushkil, there’s a lot that happened. Things were said, crazy accusations were made against me, that I had bribed someone to sabotage her husband’s film. I can’t even say that I was hurt or pained by it. I just wanted to blank it out. When she reacted to the whole situation, and put out a tweet saying, ‘Shocked!’ that’s when I knew it was completely over for me. The tweet validated the insanity, that she could believe I would bribe someone. I felt that’s it. It’s over. And she can never come back to my life. I don’t think she wants to either,”
He goes on to write, “I wouldn’t like to give a piece of myself to her at all because she’s killed every bit of emotion I had for her for twenty five years. I don’t think she deserves me. I feel nothing for her anymore. I don’t even want to speak about her husband because it’s inconsequential to my life now. He doesn’t matter to me, he never did. I still don’t want to say anything about her husband because I want to respect the history she and I shared”
While the quote gives us reason to go get the book and read a little more about the secret life of film industry and dig a little more in the life of Kjo, a source from the industry, according to a report says, “Karan is doing this just to sell his book. The whole industry knows that Karan bitches about people behind their back. Even Shah Rukh Khan was upset with Karan because of his comments against Priyanka Chopra. Two years ago at a party, Karan indulged in really loose talk about Kajol in front of an A-list actor. That actor, in turn, told Ajay Devgn about it. Ajay even asked that actor why, despite being Karan’s friend, is he telling him about it. The actor said that if Karan could badmouth Kajol in front of him, he could also gossip about him someday. Ajay was obviously furious – any man would be if his wife was talked about in such light. So he called Karan and abused him on the phone. He told Karan that ‘you can say what you wish about my film but don’t talk about my wife and family.”
