Actor Shah Rukh Khan and the Dharma Productions chief, Karan Johar, have been the best of friends ever since folks at B-town can remember. The two have worked together on several projects and Shah Rukh has starred in nearly all of Karan Johar’s directorial ventures, including Kuch Kuch Hota Hai (1998), Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham (2001), Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna (2006) and My Name Is Khan (2010). Karan has worked with Shah Rukh Khan to jointly produce the recent film Student of the Year too and the two celebrities indeed share an unbreakable bond.
There have been rumors however of the two falling out of their friendship, with Shah Rukh Khan playing no roles in any of Karan Johar’s recent projects. Speaking about the same, trade analyst Anuj Alankar says, “I think Karan has given a lot to the industry. He has given chance to new talent which is a great thing. Karan and SRK are not in a bond where they have to work with eachother. SRK is also doing films with different banners. More than Karan, Rohit Shetty has come as a surprise as he casted SRK in Chennai Express and not Ajay Devgn.”
Further pushing these rumors away, Karan Johar backed his good friend and supported him in a recent controversy recently by tweeting, “Ridiculous misinterpretation of @iamsrk`s` words…an extremely well written piece being subjected to political agenda…a shame!!!! (sic)” Karan has previously denied rumors of a rift in his relationship with Shah Rukh Khan and has maintained that there are no quarrels between him and the superstar.
