FILM­MAKER Karan Jo­har de­clined to elab­o­rate on his re­newed friend­ship with Ka­jol but said the ac­tor will “al­ways re­main special” to him. In his au­to­bi­og­ra­phy, the di­rec­tor had said that his nearly 25-year-long bond with Ka­jol ended prior to the re­lease of his and her husband ac­tor Ajay Devgn’s movies, Ae Dil Hai Mushkil and Shivaay. Jo­har had said that Devgn said some “nasty” things to him be­fore the re­lease of their films and vowed to cut all ties with his long-time friend and col­lab­o­ra­tor. The two, how­ever, have started to bond again. When asked how it feels to have his best friend back, Jo­har told re­porters, “This plat­form isn’t about my per­sonal life. But Ka­jol is, has al­ways been and will al­ways re­main more than special to me, for the time to come. Al­ways.” The di­rec­tor was speak­ing at the launch of his ra­dio show, Call­ing Karan for Ishq 104.8 FM. Jo­har was also asked for his opin­ion on the on­go­ing Pad­ma­vati row, but the di­rec­tor lim­ited his com­ments to the new project. “The rea­son why I am not com­ment­ing on any­thing else but this (the show) is that things in­vari­ably some­times seem out of con­text. When I am at World Eco­nomic Fo­rum, we talk about so­cio-po­lit­i­cal is­sues. We do de­bates suround­ing our coun­try there. “This show is about love, re­la­tion­ships, emo­tions and lust. To talk about such se­ri­ous, heavy-weight thought- pro­vok­ing is­sues, I feel is not the plat­form,” he added. — PTI/Mum­bai
