In fact, SRK has just wrapped up his song sequence for Chennai Express and is on his way to Dubai, where he will join KJo.
However Karan Johar’s decision to fly out of the country is significant because he had also been invited to party with Salman Khan at his Panvel farm house.
With the casting of his next film still waiting to be finalised and persistent rumours of how he may have distanced himself from SRK with an intent to cast Salman in his next, all eyes have been on KJo’s every move.
Especially since he has been meeting and chatting with Salman at various venues, adding grist to the rumour mills.
Even then, it has been a tight-rope walk for the filmmaker, who reportedly had to choose between the two Khans.
“Both Salman and SRK had extended an invitation to KJo. And though he took his time over it, he has finally decided to be with SRK,” says a source close to the developments.
On the other hand Producer Viacom 18 claims that Shah Rukh is the central character of the Karan Johar film that showcases how romance in Hindi cinema has changed over the years. But Karan says the actor is not yet part of his short movie.
“I am currently in the pre-production stage and haven’t cast anyone. I just locked the screenplay a few days ago, and plan to start the shoot by the end of January,” says Karan.
However, the director, who is known for his three hour-long sagas, is finding it difficult to narrate the story in 20 minutes, the time each filmmaker has been allotted. “For me, it’s a challenging format. We have 20 minutes to tell a story, which is coherent and connected to the other plots. This can be a challenge for any filmmaker,” says Karan.
