Karan is playing dirty to sell his book, source close to Ajay & Kajol hits back


Karan Johar’s rift with BFF Kajol is making headlines once again, thanks to the filmmaker’s biography ‘The Unsuitable Boy’. Excerpts of the book is doing the rounds in which Karan revealed why his long friendship with the actress fell apart.

“I don’ have a relationship with Kajol anymore. We’ve had a fallout… I wouldn’t like to give a piece of myself to her at all because she’s killed every bit of emotion I had for her for twenty-five years. I don’t think she deserves me… I feel nothing for her anymore. I don’t even want to speak about her husband because it’s inconsequential to my life now. He doesn’t matter to me, he never did,” the excerpt read.

This has evoked a reaction from the Devgns. Kajol and Ajay have commented directly, but a source close to the couple hit back. “Karan is doing this just to sell his book. The whole industry knows that Karan bitches people behind their back. Even Shah Rukh Khan was upset with Karan because of his comments against Priyanka Chopra,” a report in Hindustan Times mentioned the source as saying, on condition of anonymity.

Clarifying the issue from the Devgns’ side, the source added, “Two years ago at a party, Karan indulged in really loose talk about Kajol in front of an A-list actor. That actor, in turn, told Ajay Devgn about it. Ajay even asked that actor why, despite being Karan’s friend, is he telling him about it. The actor said that if Karan could badmouth Kajol in front of him, he could also gossip about him someday. Ajay was obviously furious - any man would be if his wife was talked about in such light. So he called Karan and abused him on the phone. He told Karan that ‘you can say what you wish about my film but don’t talk about my wife and family’.”

“This issue is two years old. Much before the clash between Karan’s film (Ae Dil Hai Mushkil) and Ajay’s film (Shivaay) happened. The fact that it is being discussed now, and so is Karan’s sexual orientation, is clearly to remain in news to sell his book. He can do whatever he wishes, but he can’t make a villain out of Ajay Devgn in that process. This is just playing dirty,” the source mentioned.
