Mumbai: It’s a great myth that Ajay Devgn doesn’t get along with his wife, Kajol’s close friends (read Shah Rukh Khan and Karan Johar).
Apparently, it was Ajay who gave away the rights of ‘Chikni Chameli’ when he heard Karan Johar wanted it for ‘Agneepath’ remake.
Talking to a daily, a source close to Devgn said, “Director Rohit Shetty and he had signed on the music directors of the original Marathi song as they wanted an item song for ‘Bol Bachchan.’ The song also featured AD and Abhishek Bachchan in it. Rohit was planning to approach Katrina Kaif or Kareena Kapoor for the same. This would be the first time that a Rohit Shetty film would have an item song. But everything changed when Karan approached Ajay-Atul to do ‘Chikni Chameli’ for them in ‘Agneepath.’”
Touched by the music duo’s request, Devgn gave a go ahead to Ajay-Atul. “Ajay was moved by their request and immediately told them they could go ahead. Now Rohit and Ajay have decided to scrap the song from the film altogether. It was a gesture few know about, including Karan himself.”
