Dharma Productions chief, Karan Johar, has been known for building strong ties in B-town. The filmmaker has extended his friendship to several contemporaries and has always been the center of attention in the industry. Lately, Karan has been fixing broken bonds with several filmmakers with who he has been reported to have locked horns earlier. Just recently, director Ram Gopal Varma personally invited Karan Johar to a special screening of his soon-to-release film, The Attacks of 26/11. “Karan Johar is one of the prominent filmmakers in the industry. Besides, he is also a good friend and I know him very well. This film has been a satisfying experience for me after a long time, so I wanted to show it to some of my friends,” said Varma in a recent interview with IANS. He went on to add, “I never had a problem with Karan. The media just manipulated the stories. We just took all those jokes and false conversations circulated in the media as back-handed compliments.”
And that’s not all. Karan also attended filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s surprise 50th birthday bash on Sunday. The party was planned by Sanjay’s sister, Bela Bhansali Sehgal, who invited the who’s who of Bollywood, Karan included! Karan has reportedly been at loggerheads with Sanjay ever since the former spoofed the latter’s character in his Dharma Productions film, I Hate Luv Stories. The two seem to have patched up lately however, further strengthening their industry ties. The film industry is indeed in for a change for the better, with directors and production houses joining hands. Up ahead, Karan Johar’s co-production with Anurag Kashyap starring Siddharth Malhotra will hit the big-screen!
