Karan Johar snubs Shahrukh, set to direct Salman

Grapevine buzzed filmmaker Karan Johar will direct Salman Khan in his next. Way back in 1998, Karan Johar directed Salman Khan in ‘Kuch Kuch Hota Hai’ but when Karan’s friendship with Shahrukh Khan grew stronger, he maintained a distance from Salman Khan but off late the duo has been bonding in a big way on reality shows.

It was reported that Salman Khan will appear in Karan Johar’s talk show, ‘Koffee With Karan’ and Karan is keen to work with Salman after a long time. The filmmaker is believed to rope in Salman for his next project. According to report, Karan will make an official announcement of the project very soon.

Karan and Salman are also related to one another professionally. Sallu’s business manager Reshma Shetty is reportedly managing Karan Johar's account.

Salman and Karan’s camaraderie was noticed during reality shows and they seem to be great buddies.

Karan and Shahrukh’s friendship is an example for the industry but for quite sometime things are not well between the two. For some reasons, they are keeping distance.

When lots had been said and written about King Khan and Karan Johar's rivalry, the filmmaker put a full stop on the report by saying Shahrukh is like a family.

Karan Johar said, “I think a lot has been said and cleared. I am not going to talk about my personal life.”

While speaking during an event Karan Johar said, “He (SRK) is like my family…I think that answers all questions.”
