20 Oct – Karan Johar is not saying much about rumours that he will be working with Salman Khan in a new movie soon, though his recent response to the media seemed to show it may be in the works.
The filmmaker, who spoke to reporters during his appearance at the silver jubilee screening of his hit 1998 movie, "Kuch Kuch Hota Hai" recently, responded to the rumours by saying he hopes that his good relationship with Salman will find "celluloid space" soon.
"I am not saying it, I am not denying it. I am superstitious about certain things. I feel like I should say it, when the time is right," he said.
Karan also shared how Salman came to guest-appear in "Kuch Kuch Hota Hai" as Aman, the fiancé of Kajol's character Anjali.
"A lot of actors had said no for the part of Aman. And then, I met Salman at Chunky Panday's party. He came to me and said, 'Only an absolutely confident person will do this film, and I am that person.' I went to narrate the film, and at the end of the first half he said 'I am doing the film'. I was like, 'But you come in the second half', he went to say, 'I don't care, I know where it's going. I really like your dad; I like your energy and am doing your film,'" said Karan.
Previously, it was rumoured that Salman will be teaming up with Karan for a movie that will be directed by Vishnuvardhan, where the actor will play a paramilitary officer.
