Why is Karan Johar cosying up to Salman Khan?

The Student Of The Year director has been seen spending quality time and bonding big time with the Dabangg 2 dude. What’s cooking KJo?

Karan Johar is ‘friendly’ with almost everyone in B-town. The coffee show host shares a friendly bond with our glitzy celebs and perhaps that’s the reason you see a galaxy of stars waiting in queue to appear on his popular chat show to spill the beans. Though KJo is extra-friendly and warm to Shahrukh Khan, he maintains that his equation with SRK is like that of a father and a son. KJo also says that he stands up in respect whenever the King Khan enters the room.

But these days the Agneepath producer is seen spending quality time with none other than Salman Khan. A little birdie chirped to us that at the recently held Dabangg 2 premiere, both KJo and Sallu were seen sitting close to each other. The two were almost inseparable and chatted almost all the time. The duo was also seen in deep conversation on a mysterious topic even at Salman’s brother Sohail Khan’s birthday party. Now this newly-flourished bonding between bhai and KJo could well turn out to be a matter of deep concern for baadshah Khan. After all, SRK’s friendship with Karan is not the same after the Priyanka-SRK over-friendly equation hurt many.

In this situation, Salman, who has become the unbeatable superstar at the box office, is a huge draw for the movie business. The arch rival of King Khan, bhai has also been demanding a fat pay check to appear on Koffee With Karan. And this new friendship blossoming between Sallu and KJo can certainly help the eloquent director. With Salman likely to be roped in Dharma Productions’ larger-than-life cinema and also shining on the coffee show, it will be a win-win situation for Johar. We wonder if the other Khan is not losing his sleep over this new male-bonding business.
