MUMBAI: Close buddies Shahrukh Khan and Karan Johar, who have delivered many box-office hits, have not worked together in any film lately.
There have been rumours that the two fell out after Priyanka Chopra grew closer to Shahrukh Khan. And Karan expressed his anguish over it as he didn’t want Gauri (Shahrukh’s wife) to suffer.
Was that also the reason Karan could be seen with Salman, Shahrukh’s arch rival in Bollywood, at Bollywood gatherings?
But now Mid-Day has quoted Karan Johar as saying that he is waiting for the right script to work again with King Khan.
KJo was quoted as saying, “Well, Shah Rukh and I working together is an eventuality as he’s part of my family. So I can assure you that it’s going to happen sooner or later. Like everyone else, I too enjoy working with him. Everything depends on the demand of the script. We can’t go and make a film together just for the heck of it.”
So is KJO trying to reach out to Shahrukh again? He says right now he is just looking forward to the release of Bombay Talkies that also features his first-ever short film about a working couple.
“I’m juggling a lot of things within the big screen and the small screen medium. I’m enjoying every bit of it and I think I will direct when the time is right,” KJo says.
