Kareena Kapoor Khan and filmmaker Karan Johar often work together in Bollywood films. Both belong to well-known Bollywood film families. Now the two will once again be seen working together in the movie ‘Takht.’

However, the shooting of the film has been postponed indefinitely due to the global coronavirus epidemic. In other news, many years ago there was a fight between these two friends and the matter reached to a point where there was no communication between the two for more than nine months.

Karan Johar mentioned this incident in his autobiography ‘An Unsuitable Boy’. “My first problem was with Kareena. She asked for too much money and we had some kind of a fallout at that time. Mujhse Dosti Karoge! had just released, directed by Kunal Kohli. She said, ‘Aditya Chopra’s assistant Kunal Kohli has made this flop, so Karan Johar’s assistant, Nikhil Advani is not to be trusted either’.”

According to Karan, Kareena was asking for the same amount of money for work in films as was given to Shah Rukh Khan. “On the weekend after the release of Dosti Karoge, I offered Kareena a job in ‘Kal Ho Na Ho’, and she demanded the same amount as Shah Rukh Khan.”

The filmmaker was saddened to be forced into signing Preity Zinta. ““I was very hurt. I told my father, ‘Leave that negotiation room’ and I called her. She didn’t take my call, and I said, ‘We’re not taking her.’ And signed Preity Zinta instead. Kareena and I didn’t speak to each other for almost a year. For a year, we looked through each other at parties. It was very idiotic. She was a kid; she’s a decade younger than me.”
