In glitzy, glamorous B-town, friendships and fame are equally capricious. It isn’t uncommon to find several friends-turned foe-turned friends stories, and Karan Johar and Ajay Devgn’s recent patch up gives a nod to this trend.
The actor is all set to make an appearance on Koffee With Karan along with wife, Kajol, but if sources are to be believed, all’s not completely well in tinsel town.
“This is just for the photographers. Ajay Devgn has never liked Kajol’s close friends, whether it is Shah Rukh Khan or Karan Johar,” says a friend of Devgn. The animosity between the two developed when Devgn’s Shivaay released on the same day as Johar’s Ae Dil Hai Mushkil. Devgn accused Johar of paying Kamaal R. Khan lakhs of rupees to badmouth Shivaay and he raised a stink about it in the media.
The acrimony intensified when Karan was apparently heard badmouthing Devgn in front of his close friends, one of whom promptly reported the conversation to Devgn.
“I told you he’s like that,” Devgn allegedly said to his wife. Thereafter, both husband and wife cut themselves off from Karan Johar.
But Karan, who is known to value his close friendships, extended the olive branch to Kajol and now she will be on Koffee With Karan with her husband.
Rumour has it that Devgn has agreed to be on the show only on his wife’s insistence. “There will be none of the bantering and flirting that Karan does with all his guests, male or female. Devgn gets very put off by the KJo style of questioning,” says the source.
