Johar, who is busy in the promotion of his next film
Student Of The Year, says Shahrukh Khan is not his best
friend. He says his best friend from childhood has been Apoorva
Mehta, the CEO of his company.
When a Journalist asked Karan Johar, who is Karan's best buddy,
on the promotion of Student of The Year. Karan surprised
everybody by saying, "There are old friends who have gone beyond
the 'friendship' tag. They are family now. My childhood friend
Apoorva Mehta, who is the CEO of my company, is my best friend.
He's been with me for the past 30 years. We have been together from
our schooldays, college days and even work together. He is my best
Talking about Shahrukh Khan Karan Johar added, "Nahi, Shahrukh
toh mere buddy nahi hain, balki mere bade bhai hain. (No, Shahrukh
is not my buddy. In fact, he is like my big brother.) I never
called him my buddy. Even today when Shahrukh enters a room, I
stand up to give him respect. So SRK is not my best friend but
Apoorva, who heads my company, is."
Well, we pray this brotherhood to last for a lifetime!
