While in the past, they have worked to­gether on sev­eral hits such as Kuch Kuch Hota Hai (1998), Kabhi Khushi Kab­hie Gham (2001), Kal Ho Naa Ho (2003), Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna (2006) and My Name Is Khan (2010) — and they also co-pro­duced Stu­dent Of The Year (2012) — Shah Rukh Khan and film-maker Karan Jo­har haven’t col­lab­o­rated on a pro­ject for a while now.

Last year, when Shah Rukh didn’t ap­pear on Karan’s chat show, ru­mours of an al­leged fall­out be­tween the two started do­ing the rounds. The spec­u­la­tion was fu­elled fur­ther when Karan was al­legedly seen get­ting ‘friendly’ with Sal­man Khan and Aamir Khan (he made his de­but ap­pear­ance on Karan’s chat show last year). How­ever, we have now come to know that Shah Rukh and Karan are set to join hands once again.

“I am not do­ing a film di­rected by Karan as yet. If I am not wrong, he is do­ing a film with Ran­bir (Kapoor), Ash (Aish­warya Rai Bachchan) and Anushka (Sharma); and I am not part of it. We (SRK’s pro­duc­tion house) are co-pro­duc­ing a film with Karan, which, I think, will be quite in­ter­est­ing be­cause the script is in­ter­est­ing. I re­cently heard the story. Karan has cho­sen the script, and he has a good mind. I like the fact that he is join­ing hands with my com­pany,” says Shah Rukh, adding that they have “been in talks” for some time now.
