Kajol will always be special, says Karan Johar
Karan Johar declined to elaborate on his renewed friendship with Kajol, but said the actor will "always remain special" to him. The filmmaker was speaking at the launch of his radio show, Calling Karan, at a suburban hotel yesterday. In his autobiography, the director had said that his nearly 25-year-long bond with Kajol ended prior to the release of his and her actor-husband Ajay Devgn's film - Ae Dil Hai Mushkil and Shivaay respectively.
KJo said that Ajay said some "nasty" things to him before the release of their films and vowed to cut off all ties with his long-time friend and collaborator. The two, however, have started to bond again. When asked how it feels to have his best friend back, Johar said, "This platform isn't about my personal life. But Kajol is, has always been and will always remain more than special to me, for the time to come.
Johar was also asked about his opinion on the ongoing Padmavati row, but the director limited his comments to the new project. "The reason why I am not commenting on anything else but this [the show] is that things invariably sometimes seem out of context. When I am at the World Economic Forum, we talk about socio-political issues. We do debates surrounding our country there [and not about other subjects].
