Karan continued, “I just can’t wait to share cinema space with Shah Rukh again. In the last few years, we co-produced films such as Student of the Year and Dear Zindagi together but now I can’t wait to collaborate with him in a full-fledged manner.”

Earlier, Karan sang praises for his long-time friend Kajol Devgn too. “Kajol is and will remain as a special part of my life,” he stated. And, he was reportedly extremely upset when he had a falling out with the starlet last year but the two eventually resolved their issues.

“The problem was actually never between her and me. It was between her husband and me. I don’t really want to say what transpired. I felt that if she’s not going to acknowledge 25 years of friendship, if she wants to support her husband, then that’s her prerogative. But I just couldn’t see myself in her life any more. It’s been months we haven’t spoken to each other,” he said previously.
