Karan Johar has been recently making headlines for his book An Unsuitable Boy. Seems he has just bared it all for many controversial reasons. From opening up on his fallout with Kajol, to his fight with Shah Rukh Khan and how he made up with him and now on how he fought with Kareena Kapoor and the reason why the duo were cold with each other for almost a year.
The first reason of their fallout was when Kareena Kapoor had refused Karan Johar’s Kal Ho Na Ho, which ultimately went to Preity Zinta. Apart from this, Karan was very upset with Kareena for this shocking reason.
Karan who is best friends with Kareena now, revealed that the two fought over money and Karan found Kareena’s behaviour very insulting towards him and his late father Yash Johar.
He wrote in his book that Kareena had asked for too much money and we had anyways had some kind of a fallout at that time.
He said, Mujhse Dosti Karoge had just released, directed by Kunal Kohli and she said, ‘Aditya Chopra’s assistant Kunal Kohli has made this flop, so Karan Johar’s assistant, Nikhil Advani is not to be trusted either’. Karan then said, the weekend of Mujhse Dosti Karoge’s release, he had offered her Kal Ho Naa Ho, and she asked for the same money that Shah Rukh Khan was getting. Karan said that he was so hurt and told her sorry and told his father to leave that negotiation room and then he called her, but she didn’t take his call, and so he said, ‘We’re not taking her.’
And so they signed Preity Zinta instead. So that’s the reason why Kareena and he didn’t speak to each other for almost a year. He continued saying that for a year, they looked through each other at parties, it was very idiotic and she was a kid and a decade younger than him.
After fighting he further wrote how the two patched up, he said when they were releasing Kal Ho Naa Ho in November, they had shot the film in June, July, August and in September they had to shoot the songs, make the promos and so on, and so he had to head back, while his father continued the treatment in New York.
It was nine months since they had not spoken and Kareena Kapoor called him saying she had heard about Yash uncle. She got really emotional on the phone, and said, “I love you and I am so sorry I haven’t been in touch. Don’t worry.”
Well that was history and now we are happy that now their friendship has evolved and are like BFF.
