The recent public fallout between filmmaker Karan Johar and his best friend for 25 years, Kajol became the talking point for many. Karan even spoke in detail about the fallout in his autobiography, An Unsuitable Boy. 
 
In an interview Barkha Dutt at Town Hall, Karan was asked about Kajol to which he said, "I think enough has been said about me and Kajol. In fact, a lot of which I have said myself...in fact she has not said anything. I felt the need to speak because I felt the need to just express myself on that issue and I think I'm done expressing myself. So about Kajol, I just have to say that we've had a 25-year old friendship and relationships end, friendships sometimes come to a close. And ours has. That's all pretty much what the status is and the status will be that."
 
He added, "It is sad. There is nothing happy about it. I feel sad. I have a great amount of respect and love for her. That will always remain. It will never go away. But sometimes, there is an expiry date to your relationship or your friendship, and we've reached ours. But that doesn't mean it can ever take away from the times we've shared, from the work we've done, for the love we have for each other. And the love I have for her and her family, her mother and her sister." 
 
When asked about Ajay, he said, "I have no relationship with that man. I have never known him, I never did. He was always her husband, he was not my friend. He's not even an acquaintance. He's just a man in her life and I will always respect that. Which is why I will never say anything about them or him."

oh my god enough already kjo,watch this man speak about kajol and kangana till the next 30 years.LET IT GO karan

Teenage girl...

Friendship and love have no expiry date

Drama king. Who knew the "friendship expiry date" card existed until today? Chi!

Their feud is quite ridiculous, tbh. Although I completely understand how it feels too as I have recently ended a very long term friendship with a former friend myself, I find their situation questionable. In my book, Ajay, Kajol, and Karan are all in the red. Ajay is in the red for making assumptions about Karan causing a threat to his movie premiere. First of all, there is no receipts to prove his accusations against Karan, just hear say. Nevertheless, if he was confident in his own film, he wouldn't have to worry about any threat against his project, let his work speak for himself. Kajol is in the red because I get it, she's Ajay's wife and she'll always choose his side. Fair enough. But I think a good wife and friend would tell both her husband and her friend to cut the crap!! The drama is so petty between the both of you. Karan is in the red because he is sharing too much. I appreciate his honesty, but he is a little too open about their situation. Somethings are best kept private. Overall they should get over themselves, kiss and makeup, make incredible movies as they always have, and get this money!! Like seriously?! You all are going to allow something so small to affect your careers this way? GET. A. GRIP.

Karma getting back at Kajol for what she did to Rani, Karan & Adi Chopra

It is true! As you get older you start to realize who your true friend are. I had a shit ton of friends in my school years and now that I'm 29yrs old my friendship pool has been reduced to 5 and will soon become 2. It happens, it's a part of life.

KJo is growing old and likes being around younger and popular peeps to feel young and "in the game" himself. Kajol to Kareena to Alia, his close circle has just grown younger by the years.

obviosuly the problem is not kajol herself but between ajay and karan. a woman at the end of the day will always choose her husbands side

I really cant believe this... I guess Kajol is better off without Karan, although I thought many times that it's because of Ajay that she loses some friends and even that she does less movies. After all this drama, I would understand if Kajol doesn't want to be friends with him anymore. So disappointing this guy. I hope he'll grow soon as he has 2 kids now. He should be a good example for them.

Ajay spoke first and only once about KJO. He said he came to know from reliable sources that KJO is talking rubbish and disrespectful stuff about kajol behind her back. He proved it to his wife and abused KJO and he publicly acknowledged this incident. KJO is upset that kajol believed it. She knows you KJO and hence she believes you are capable of it. Many insiders are now clearly recognising KJO for what he is.

After saying he doesn't want to talk , why go on about it ? She has been a good friend in the past , if he's angry he should speak to her directly -certainly not diss the Devgans in public to the press time after time .

Kajol is so badly dressed , she could have done the sleeves

How convenient for kjo, their friendship lasted while she was a star and he hadn't yet had a break, and ended when her stardom waned and he no longer needed her.
Also hilarious how he said he will never say about ajay, I think he's said plenty already.

He should put an expiry date on his career as well so we won't have to watch his crap films.

When most of Kajol's best actress wins are from Karan's 'crap films'. Spare me.

CAN THIS MAN PLEASE SHUT UP

Karan, it's time for you to grow up. I think you should choose to not answer these questions rather than saying, I will not discuss about it and then give a two paragraph answer. You are not a teenager that you feel the need to constantly discuss your broken friendship.

Kajol is so much more dignified than you are. That's why she kept silent. Team Kajol all the way!

Oh, Shut up for once.

He has to sell his flop book! So milking Kajol issue, Kangana issue now

I think its about time Ajay should man up and make up with Karan, even if it is for Kajol's sake. Karan sure as hell will keep on moping and Ajay has to be the bigger person.

I wonder if ADHM is about his unrequited love for Kajol. He sounds crazy jealous of Ajay

Karan grow up! time and again falling back on your word... guilt hypocrisy.. what have you become? miss the younger more sorted Karan
Kajol is a true queen and has always been so sophisticated and dignified.. we are with you Kajol and ajay! :)

Excuse me? He's not just A man in her life. He's THE man in her life.

Why do i have the feeling that this fall-out is a publicity stunt to keep them both on the news?

He probably will split the profit from the book 50-50 with Kajol and both of them would be laughing at those jubilating about their fall-out.

Karan just referred to Ajay as A man in Kajol's life.

Is this just plain jealousy or is Ajay really a bad guy and Karan feels Kajol is better off without him?

Karan about Kajol: I have a great amount of respect and love for her. That will always remain. It will never go away. But sometimes, there is an expiry date to your relationship or your friendship, and we've reached ours. But that doesn't mean it can ever take away from the times we've shared, from the work we've done, for the love we have for each other. And the love I have for her and her family, her mother and her sister.

Karan about Ajay: I have no relationship with that man. I have never known him, I never did. He was always her husband, he was not my friend. He's not even an acquaintance. He's just a man in her life and I will always respect that. Which is why I will never say anything about them or him."

Ajay is his problem, not Kajol

Once again, AJAY IS HIS PROBLEM, NOT KAJOL!

If he says anything about Ajay, Ajay will come and punch him. lol he is so scared of Ajay. he is comfortable with gauri ..manish.. Jitesh...niranjan...all bunch of gays & queers. lol He should talk less & maintain some dignity. Karan u are loosing it.

Kajol, just apologize to him so he can let it go even if you guys never become friends again.

Tired of hearing this over and over again.

Clearly its guilt. He's said so much nonsense about Kajol and Ajay and they havnt said a word, they are so dignified and classy. He has also apparently made up a lot of stuff for his book to sell, used their name. There are always 2 sides to every story. He's scared now if Kajol and Ajay ever speak on the matter, he will be exposed, so now he's being nice and saying things like I love and respect her and her family and wont say anything about them (after having said everything and more multiple times). Gosh, when will he ever grow up and learn... Team Kajol and Ajay always and all the way! :)

Hahahahahaha. He soooo hates Ajay!!!

To be fair though, he didn't say anything bad about Kajol. Read the article. It's sad though that 25 years of friendship just ends like that.

STFU about Kajol already. She is keeping dignified silence but he can't stop talking about her. Class 5 loser! He is trying to play down the whole thing cos he realizes she hasn't said a bad word about him despite him making personal attacks on her in public.Kajol is better off without a mean, fickle and an opportunistic person like him in her life.

Buy a extended warranty.

Oh god again he's started his victim rant!

Victim card alert!
