Shahrukh Khan and Karan Johar have been the best of buddies once. The two have been known to hold utmost respect and regard for each other. In addition, Shahrukh Khan has been seen in multiple films produced by Karan Johar. However, Karan Johar seems to be reconsidering his casting options as Shahrukh Khan has landed in hot waters after giving consecutive flops.
His latest film Zero in particular raised many questions about his age and stardom and while Karan Johar has been openly vocal about saying that the Khans can never lose their stardom however he appears to be cautious about not casting SRK.
Reportedly, Johar is preferring Salman Khan and Akshay Kumar over Shahrukh Khan. Karan Johar is producing two films of Akshay Kumar under his banner and while his biggest project Takht has many big names involved but Shah Rukh hasn’t been given a role to play.
SRK is currently searching for his next project. The actor has been pondering about Saare Jahan Se Accha, Don 3 and other scripts which have been offered to him. Amidst this, Karan Johar has not offered Shahrukh anything.
Shahrukh Khan has also not been a part of Koffee with Karan’s season 6. While he has been a regular on that show before, this time we will not get to see him on the show at all. In fact reportedly, Karan Johar went on to invite Akshay Kumar, Aamir Khan and Ajay Devgn instead while the finale may feature Salman Khan or Kareena Kapoor with Priyanka Copra.
Sadly, Shah Rukh and Karan Johar’s relationship seems have strained over time and no effort has been made from either side to clear the air.
