We all knows that Kajol and Karan Johar are best friends. Recently, the duo appeared on Kapil Sharma’s show.
In a fun-filled chat show, the Bollywood friends talked about how they met for the first time and shared memories of industry parties.
Kajol had a big crush on Akshay Kumar
Karan even revealed some interesting things about Kajol that she once had a crush on her Yeh Dillagi co-star Akshay Kumar.
Karan said, “I met Kajol at another party, at the premiere of Henna movie. Kajol had a big crush on Akshay Kumar and was looking for him at the entire premiere and I was her support then. So both of us were looking for him at the entire event. While we didn’t find Akshay, but it was the beginning of our friendship. Both of us stayed in South Mumbai and that’s where our friendship developed further”.
Notably, Akshay and Kajol have worked together once in their 1994 film Yeh Dillagi. Produced by Yash Raj Films, it also starred Saif Ali Khan in the lead role.
Adding to this, Kajol revealed what happened when they first met. She said, “It was film party at a discotheque. Mr Johar arrived in a three-piece suit and I just couldn’t stop laughing, wondering what kind of a man wears that!”
Insisting that all her recollections were wrong, Karan said, “I was just 17 years old and opted for a suit, thinking that people are all dressed for a filmy party. Tanu aunty (Kajol’s mom, Tanuja) suggested that we dance, while I am doing my dance, Kajol is just laughing at me, for almost half an hour. Who does that! I felt so humiliated, I walked out of the party as I have never felt so insulted in my life.”
Kajol and Karan met in 1995 when he was an assistant on “Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge”which starred Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol.
Kajol has worked with Karan in multiple projects including “Kuch Kuch Hota Hai”, “Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham”, “My Name is Khan” and special appearances in “Kabhi Alvida Na Kehna” and “Student of the Year”.
