A case of switching loyalties or just broadening of his friend circle! Karan Johar now can’t wait to work with Salman Khan whose soiled equation with Shahrukh Khan we all are aware of.
There’re whispers of Karan Johar’s possible falling out with his long-time buddy Shahrukh Khan, although we take such canards with a pinch of salt. If Karan Johar’s not directing SRK for the first time in his career (in Student Of The Year) was not enough, the director’s lavish praises of SRK’s bete noire Salman Khan has got the tongues wagging and, in the worst scenario, might get SRK’s goat as well.
This is what Karan Johar told a leading daily: “I’m a huge Salman fan. I’m not just waiting; I’m dying to work with him. And he has huge fan following at my office. My writers and directors are a smitten bunch. They tell me, take your time signing him for a film, but please just call him to the office so we can interact, click pics and chat with him.”
It can be recalled that Salman Khan and Karan Johar bonded very well when the latter appeared on the show ‘Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa’ of which Karan is a judge.
However, Karan’s blooming fondness for Salman shouldn’t be construed as a falling out with SRK. Just a few days back, Karan had said that Shahrukh Khan and Yash Chopra’s Jab Tak Hai Jaan is the most special film of 2012 for him.
“Yashji (Yash Chopra) is like my father. His birthday this year is very special because he is probably making his last film. All of our films are releasing this year but that film will be the most special experience of 2012,” Karan said.
Meanwhile, K-Jo is himself awaiting the release of Student Of The Year on October 19. The film introduces three newcomers: Varun Dhawan, Alia Bhatt and Siddharth Kapoor.
