Karan Johar and Ajay Devgn had a public ugly spat during the release of Ae Dil Hai Mushkil and Shivaay which clashed at the box office. Karan also spoke about his fallout with Kajol in his recently released autobiography An Unsuitable Boy.
In a recent interview with a popular daily, Karan blamed Ajay Devgn to be the reason for his fallout with Kajol. He said, “He called me and shouted at me and said some really nasty things because he heard at a party that I’d said some things about his wife. I just felt that heresay cannot be the reason for anyone to pick up the phone and say unsavoury things to anyone else. You have to give me the chance to defend myself.”
He further added, “Ajay said I'd bribed a trade analyst to write bad things about his film and praise mine, then he put out a statement saying there should be an investigation and she retweeted it saying 'SHOCKING'. And that was it... I don't want to say anything more, but yes one thing I'd like to say & I stand by it is that this is not a phase, a feeling that will change. No matter what, she's out of my life.”
Karann was also questioned whether he’s dating someone, to which the filmmaker immediately replied, "I'm afraid to go out for dinner with another man because the paparazzi reaches everywhere and if you go out for dinner with a man, you're sleeping with him. Because two men can't be out for dinner just as friends."
