Filmmaker Karan Johar and superstar Shahrukh Khan have been the best of pals for years now. And to no surprise, Karan Johar was much expected to celebrate this New Year with Khan but KJo chose to turn down SRK’s invite at the last moment.
Karan Johar who was very much in Dubai at that night had been invited by both Salman Khan and SRK to their respective NYE celebrations hosted in Palm Jumeirah address, The Times of India reported.
A source close to the filmmaker spilled the beans: “Karan did receive an invite from SRK, and for the longest time he was actually in two minds whether he should miss it or be there. For years they have ushered in the New Year together in Dubai. You can say, the tradition was broken for the first time.”
Reportedly, Khan’s dinner bash was a quiet and private affair. It was attended by SRK’s other friends Boney Kapoor, Sridevi, Chunkey Pandey and wife, Sanjay and Maheep Kapoor. But, unfortunately, KJo wasn’t a part of it.
This comes as reports suggest that Karan Johar will be joining SRK in Dubai to celebrate the New Year as Karan Johar has been rather emphatic about nixing all reports of a cooling-off between him and SRK.
He declared in an interview with the Times of India, “SRK, Gauri and I are one unit.” But his absence from the Khan household on such a special occasion may just take the bite off his argument the next time.
In the meantime a source close to Shahrukh Khan said, “May be he just wanted to celebrate in his own way, or may be he could not make up his mind.”
