"Just because the two films are shot at the same location doesn't mean they have similar subjects," karan johar sets the record straight, "Earlier, they said Kal Ho Naa Ho was Anand. Then they said Dostana was I Now Pronounce You Chuck & Larry. Now it's Arlington Road. Why should we copy movies? Can't we come up with original stuff?"
Karan continues in the same breath, "Adi and I are best friends. Do you think we would go to the extent of choosing the same story? Just because the two films have the backdrop of terrorism doesn't mean they are similar in content. Going by this logic, even Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jaayenge, Kuch Kuch Hota Hai, Mohabbatein and Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi have similar stories since they belong to the same genre."
