Rumours had been circulating recently of Kareena Kapoor Khan and Karan Johar�۪s friendship having come to an end after Kapoor Khan�۪s decision to walk out of Karan Johar�۪s ��Shuddhi�۪.�� However, the actress insists that her friendship with Johar remains unchanged and their equation goes way beyond that of a filmmaker and actress.
���Once and for all I want to clarify that not being a part of ��Shuddhi�۪ was completely my call.�� Whatever the conclusions were ��� that the film didn�۪t work out, whether Hrithik wasn�۪t there or I didn�۪t want to be part of it at that point ��� Karan was very supportive throughout as a friend.�� He completely understood, and he knows my reasons.�� That�۪s what is important��_ one film cannot cost a relationship,� the actress told Deccan Chronicle.
It can be noted that in the initial stages of her career, Kapoor Khan had walked out of Johar�۪s ��Kal Ho Naa Ho�۪ (2003), causing a rift in their friendship.�� However, they soon made up and the actress went on to do a number of films under the Dharma Productions banner over the years that followed.
There has been no confirmation from Dharma Productions on the state of ��Shuddhi�۪.
