This is perhaps the biggest scandal of the year. Ajay Devgn, who is preparing hard for his upcoming Diwali release Shivaay, leaked an audio clip where Kamaal R Khan is confessing that Karan Johar has paid him 25 lakhs to badmouth Shivaay and praise Ae Dil Hai Mushkil, which is also releasing on the same date.
Now, we all know how close Kajol is to Karan Johar. He is one of her best friends. But it is obvious that she will take her husband's side and she has proved the same by tweeting that she is shocked after hearing the clip. She also shared the same clip. Kajol captioned it, "SHOCKED".

Karan Johar started his career as a director with Kuch Kuch Hotaa Hai in which Kajol starred as the female lead.

Did you know that Karan Johar was a part of Shahrukh Khan and Kajol's classic film DDLJ? He played SRK's friend in the movie.

Kajol and Karan Johar gave many superhit films to the industry like Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham in 2001 and My Name Is Khan in 2010.

Not many people know that there was a time when Karan Johar used to consider Kajol his lucky mascot. She did special appearances in his films like Kabhi Alvida Na Kehna and Student of the Year.

Karan On His Friendship With Kajol
Once in an interview, Karan Johar had said about Kajol, ''Close friends have issues, and we, too, had a minor one. But it got resolved even before we knew it.''
(In Pic-Kajol and Karan Johar.)
He had added, ''We are too close to fight. Our relationship goes back 25 years. With Kajol, the status is: I loved her then, I love her even now, and I will continue to love her.''

Does this mean that Kajol has ended her friendship with Karan Johar? Well, after reading her tweet we can say she is in no mood to forgive Karan Johar!
Coming back to Kamaal R Khan, he did a U-turn by claiming that Karan Johar never paid him anything. KRK admitted to taking the money in a taped telephonic conversation with Ajay's business partner, Kumar Mangat.
He told a leading daily, ''Kumar Mangat is my close friend. Please listen to the tape properly. He called me to complain that I said bad about Shivaay and I said that nothing like that. He was complaining again and again that I am praising Ae Dil Hai Mushkil while other critics have said bad about it. Still I said that no I am not supporting Karan.''
He added, ''But Kumar Mangat was still complaining that I am favouring Karan when I am Kumar's friend. So to close the topic and avoid Kumar Mangat I said that I am favouring Karan because he paid me 25 lakhs. But Karan has not paid me anything. Nobody can buy my review, whoever is he (sic)."
