Mumbai: Behind all the glitz and glam, lies great unpredictability in Bollywood. It’s almost like a surreal world where foes turn friends and allies turn rivals. The industries two topmost filmmakers, Sanjay Leela Bhansali and Karan Johar have waged war of words offending each other time and again, but now the duo seems to have kissed and reconciled.
KJo and SLB, who met each other on the sets of a yet to be launched TV show looked quite comfortable in each other’s presence.
Narrating how the two ace directors received one another, a source while talking to a daily said, “There have been many problems between the two. However, they met like gentlemen. Both of them spoke for some time and cleared the air. Karan is extremely close to the channel and had gone there to announce his association with the show. Bhansali is the host of the show and so they met.”
Karan and Sanjay’s relationship turned sour when the former mocked Bhansali’s film ‘Saawariya’ on his talk show. And Bhansali got offended by Karan’s remarks and slammed his coffee show by as frivolous.
Karan was ready with an answer to Bhansali’s comments about his talk show and said, “Anyone who chooses the media as a form of communication is clearly not a friend. I think he needs to learn to take himself a lot more lightly than he does. It will be a good thing for him.”
Bhansali, who had issues with Shah Rukh Khan and Farah Khan since the release of ‘Om Shanti Om’ has now patched up with his old friends. Only Karan from the SRK gang was left to be reconciled with.
Karan was unavailable for any comment, but when contacted Bhansali, his spokesperson said, “They met very warmly.”
