However, despite all of it, on Republic Day 2020, both Kangana and Karan were conferred with Padma Shri for their contributions to the world of cinema.

Karan said, “So much has been said about Kangana, me and some kind of rivalry or simmering tension. But at every public event we’ve met, we’ve greeted each other graciously. As a filmmaker, I respect Kangana’s talent, craft, and what she brings to the table. She is an actor who has proved her mettle and is deserving of the honour. Besides Ekta and Adnan Sami, I am honoured to receive the Padma Shri alongside Kangana.” On working with Kangana, Johar said, “Tomorrow, if I have a film for which I need Kangana, I will pick up the phone and call her. Whatever the problem, whatever may have been said on social media, is irrelevant to me. I’m a filmmaker and she’s an artiste and no amount of personal bias should come in the way of that relationship. I believe in that and will stand by it.”

Apart from Karan Johar and Kangana, Adnan Sami and Ekta Kapoor were also conferred with the 4th highest civilian honour on Republic Day 2020. Meanwhile, Karan is out on recce for Takht which will go on floors this year.
