Despite the fact that Sanjay Leela Bhansali made an appearance at Karan Johar’s 40th birthday party, signalling the end of a long season of bitterness, their tenuous bond may have snapped, yet again.
At an event to promote Bela Saigal’s debut film, Shirin Farhad Ki Toh Nikal Padi co-produced by Bhansali and Eros, the producer-filmmaker was conspicuous by his absence. More so because, KJo was one of the star guests. And if insiders are to be believed, Bhansali’s decision to stay away from the event may have something to do with a heroine one lost, and the other gained recently, Kareena Kapoor.
It is a known fact that Bhansali, has been passionately involved with the Farah Khan and Boman Irani starrer and has been going all out for his sister’s launch vehicle. For him to skip the event perhaps signals a revival of his cold war with KJo.
But a friend of the filmmaker attributed the absence to the music recording of his next, Ram Leela. “If you notice, Bhansali attends only the launch and first look events for his films. He never comes for the other promotions,” added the friend.
A source revealed that it was Farah who invited Kjo for the poster launch. “Farah has been trying hard to reach out to a larger audience with her debut venture. She invited Karan. Also, the poster recreated the Kuch Kuch Hota Hai poster, a Dharma Productions’ venture,” added the source. Dressed as Rahul and Anjali of Karan’s 1998 blockbuster, Farah and Boman enacted a small scene. Bela and Karan were also a part of the act. But Bhansali, who had been a part of the first look launch of the film along with Madhuri Dixit, missed it.
