Bollywood’s popular film director and producer Karan Johar has revealed some shocking claims about acting legend Shah Rukh Khan.

Karan Johar and Shah Rukh Khan are considered as one of the most strong director-actor pairings.

However, a shocking statement by the Student of the Year director circulated online where he says that the King of Bollywood often tends to ‘overact.’

He wrote in his memoir, An Unsuitable Boy: “Shah Rukh came in 1991, and I wasn’t a fan of his at all. Ironically, I liked him the least. But Apoorva (Mehta, Karan’s friend and now Dharma Productions’ CEO) did.”

“I was Team Aamir and he was Team Shah Rukh. There were girls who were obsessed with Shah Rukh and there were people like me who were mad about Aamir,” he said further.

Karan Johar added more, “I was not a Shah Rukh Khan fan because I thought he overacted. I didn’t like him in Deewana. And Apoorva used to say: ‘Aamir is so boring, what do you like about him?’ We had these fights about Aamir and Shah Rukh as if they were our relatives and we had to take up cudgels on their behalf. They were very passionate fights.”
