Rani Mukerji plays peacemaker
To refresh memories, KJO started his career as an assistant director on the sets of the Aditya Chopra’s film Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge.
The young director was inspired by the work of his film producer father, Yash Johar. In DDLJ, Karan Johar had also managed a cameo as a friend of Shah Rukh Khan. But, after Karan rose to fame, he had a fallout with Aditya Chopra.
The tide seems to be turning, as earlier this year, KJO was seen promoting a band started by Y Films — a subsidiary of Yash Raj Films.
It seems like the Chopra bahu has played a crucial role in getting one of her closest friends, Karan, and hubby Aditya to rekindle their friendship.
“Rani and Aditya went for dinner to Karan Johar’s house. While Karan has gone ahead with multiple collaborations in the past few years with other studios, producers like Sajid Nadiadwala has not collaborated with YRF.
This patch-up dinner may well serve as the catalyst in the days to come, not just in getting old friends back together, but perhaps to get them to work together again,” says our source.
