Rumours had been circulating recently of Kareena Kapoor Khan and Karan Johar۪s friendship having come to an end after Kapoor Khan۪s decision to walk out of Karan Johar۪s Shuddhi۪. 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 Shuddhi۪ was completely my call. Whatever the conclusions were that the film didn۪t work out, whether Hrithik wasn۪t there or I didn۪t 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. That۪s 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 Johar۪s Kal Ho Naa Ho۪ (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 Shuddhi۪.
