Revealed: Why SRK gave a miss to KJo’s 'Koffee WIth Karan'
Bollywood buzz is that superstar Shah Rukh Khan, who is a very close friend of Karan Johar, did not attend the finale of his chat show this season since the actor is angry with the filmmaker and has refused to be a part of the show. This came as quite a shock to the industry as many were expecting SRK to feature on ‘Koffee With Karan’, as he had done in all previous seasons.
According to sources, Karan denied the fallout rumours and said everything between him and SRK were fine and they were just as close, but some think otherwise. There are people who think it to be the reason SRK has not been asked to star in Karan’s dream project ‘Shuddhi’.
Or it can be that SRK is busy shooting for filmmaker Farah Khan’s upcoming film ‘Happy New Year’. And the actor had got injured during the shoot in Mumbai and had decided to take a break from work due to health reasons. Piling work made it a priority to wrap up the shooting of the film that is scheduled to release this October.
Another reason could be that SRK is angry with KJo because he is inching towards Salman these days. It is a known fact that Shah Rukh Khan and Salman Khan are rivals and lead two most powerful camps of Bollywood. SRK it seems is miffed with Karan since he is giving more importance to Salman and invited him to open this season of his chat show.
A likely reason could also be that KJo’s show was mostly famous for bringing madcap actor combinations on the couch, but it appeared different this time. It seemed Karan chose to cast only those actors who were on a promotional spree and thus saw Madhuri Dixit Nene and Juhi Chawla (Gulab Gang), Ranveer Singh and Arjun Kapoor (Gunday), and Farhan Akhtar and Vidya Balan (Shaadi Ke Side Effects) make an appearance on the show. Since SRK did not have any movie to promote, the superstar chose to give the show a miss.
Or it could be that SRK is too busy with IPL. Shar Rukh is the co-owner of IPL team Kolkata Knight Rider and he will be busy cheering is team as the IPL season seven begins from April 16. According to a Gulf News report SRK is to attend a gala dinner at the Emirates Palace on April 15.
