There has been a lot said about Karan Johar‘s relationship with Kajol. The two were the closest of friends and Karan even considered her to be his lucky charm. So much, that she’d make a special appearance in all of his films. Things have since then changed and the two are no longer on talking terms. In a recent interview with Barkha Dutt, Karan was asked about his public spat with her. Here’s what he said.
I think enough has been said about me and Kajol. In fact, a lot of which I have said myself. In fact she has not said anything. I felt the need to speak because I felt the need to just express myself on that issue and I think I’m done expressing myself. So about Kajol, I just have to say that we’ve had a 25-year old friendship and relationships end, friendships sometimes come to a close. And ours has. That’s all pretty much what the status is and the status will be that. It is sad. There is nothing happy about it. I feel sad. I have a great amount of respect and love for her. That will always remain. It will never go away. But sometimes, there is an expiry date to your relationship or your friendship, and we’ve reached ours. But that doesn’t mean it can ever take away from the times we’ve shared, from the work we’ve done, for the love we have for each other. And the love I have for her and her family, her mother and her sister.
I have no relationship with that man. I have never known him, I never did. He was always her husband, he was not my friend. He’s not even an acquaintance. He’s just a man in her life and I will always respect that. Which is why I will never say anything about them or him.
Sigh. I guess we can’t say “but she’s your best friend ya!” anymore.
