In a recent episode of “Koffee With Karan,” Sara Ali Khan shared her perspective on building lasting friendships in Bollywood, highlighting the impermanence of pinky promises and declarations of eternal loyalty. Adding to this discussion, Karan Johar, the show’s host, delved into his past conflicts with close friends Kareena Kapoor and Kajol.

Karan Johar revealed that he had a falling out with Kareena Kapoor over the film “Kal Ho Na Ho” and the disagreement resulted in a prolonged silence between them. He shared, “She was like I don’t know what to say, I said, don’t say anything, I know you are there. When he passed away, she was in Bangkok. We still had not mended, and at the point she landed from her shoot, she came home. We spent all night just chatting. We went back to where we were. When we fought, I said I was never going to speak with her again.”

Kareena had previously worked with Karan Johar in the 2001 superhit film “Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham.” Their relationship soured due to a disagreement over Kareena’s remuneration for the movie “Kal Ho Naa Ho,” produced by Karan Johar’s Dharma Productions. In his autobiography, “An Unsuitable Boy,” KJo disclosed the details of their year-long estrangement, noting that Kareena was a decade younger than him at the time. However, their feud came to an end after Karan Johar publicly announced the birth of Kareena and Saif’s son, Taimur Ali Khan, on his social media account in 2016.

Karan Johar also shared insights into his rift with Kajol and the ultimate reconciliation they experienced. He disclosed that during their period of non-communication, he sent Kajol pictures of his children, Yash and Roohi, without expecting a reply. He recalled, “I said you don’t need to reply but these are what my children look like – Yash and Roohi. She messaged back and she said, I am just full of love right now. A month later, she said it’s my birthday, you don’t have to come but I went. We hugged, we cried and it was done.”

The tensions in Karan Johar and Kajol’s relationship came to the forefront during the 2016 box office clash between Karan Johar’s “Ae Dil Hai Mushkil” and Ajay Devgn’s “Shivaay.” Karan Johar also detailed the impact of his dispute with Ajay Devgn on his friendship with Kajol in his autobiography, “An Unsuitable Boy.” However, the two friends eventually put their differences behind them, and Kajol and Ajay Devgn even made an appearance on Karan Johar’s talk show “Koffee With Karan 6” in 2018.
