Karan Johar spoke highly of Salman Khan as he opened up about casting him in a film. He said he was superstitious, would talk about the film at the right time.
On October 15, Karan Johar celebrated the silver jubilee of his iconic film, Kuch Kuch Hota Hai (1998) by hosting a special screening for fans, where the filmmaker turned up with Shah Rukh Khan and Rani Mukerji. In an interview with Pinkvilla, Karan was asked about Salman, who also appeared in a cameo role his debut film Kuch Kuch Hota Hai. Karan also responded to a question on whether Salman and him are teaming up for the first time on a full-length film.
When asked if the collaboration is finally happening, Karan Johar said, “The thing is that I have to tell you that I have the deepest respect for Salman and his entire family. My father (Yash Johar) was very close to Salim saab (Salman Khan’s father and script writer). And I told you how Salman said yes to the film (Kuch Kuch Hota Hai), he said yes based on the fact that he loved my dad. And that has never left my heart. All I can say at this moment is that that relationship will hopefully find celluloid space very soon. I am not saying it, I am not denying it. I am superstitious about certain things. I feel like I should say it, when the time is right.”
