Speculations have been rife about the Dharma head-honcho and Gori Tere Pyar Mein actor not sharing friendly vibes after a debacle at the box office
Karan Johar dismissed reports of a spat between him and actor friend Imran Khan saying they are close on professional as well as personal levels. The sinking of Karan’s home production Gori Tere Pyaar Mein at the box office has reportedly created a rift between the filmmaker and the leading actor of the film, Imran.
According to reports, Imran even offered to return the paycheck after the box office debacle of the film. “We are close professionally and personally too. I am close to both Imran and Avantika (Imran’s wife). Both are extremely dear to me and will continue to be. The reports made no sense to me… It is ridiculous,” Karan said at an event in Mumbai.
Karan said nothing much should be read into his absence from the baby shower function of Imran and Avantika and him apparently not wishing Imran on his birthday. “Avantika is going to deliver(baby) and I wish them smooth easy run. I wish them good luck and success. I think baby shower is more of a women’s function. With regards to wishing anyone on birthday, I don’t think anyone talks about who wished and who did not,” Karan said.
Rumour mills are also abuzz that all is not well between Karan and his close friends Shah Rukh Khan and Kareena Kapoor Khan, but the filmmaker chose not to talk about it.
