Scroll Down To Read Karan's Shocking Statements..
Ajay Had Said Nasty Things To Karan
Karan said, "He (Ajay) called me and shouted at me and said some really nasty things because he heard at a party that I'd said some things about his wife. I just felt that hearsay cannot be the reason for anyone to pick up the phone and say unsavoury things to anyone else. You have to give me the chance to defend myself."
KJo On Kajol
"He(Ajay) put out a statement saying there should be an investigation and she retweeted it saying ‘SHOCKING'. And that was it. I felt she should've not allowed her husband to say such things about me & even if he had, she shouldn't have endorsed and thirdly she should've picked up the phone and called me and said sorry for that entire situation. I'd like to say & I stand by it is that this is not a phase, a feeling that will change. No matter what, she's out of my life."
Karan On His Apology Video..
Karan Johar, whose film Ae Dil Hai Mushkil, came under attack from a Maharashtra-based party for featuring Pakistani star Fawad Khan, says that he feels ‘terrible' about putting out a video statement in which he said that he will not engage with talent from Pakistan.
How It All Started..
The film's release became doubtful after the Maharashtra Navnirman Sena protested against the involvement of Fawad in it. Prior to the release of the film, Karan issued a video statement seen as an apology to appease the strong-arm tactics of the Sena leaders.
‘I Feel Terrible About It’
Asked by anchor Vir Sanghvi about the apology video, Karan said during an interview on news channel CNN-News18, "At the time of 'Ae Dil Hai Mushkil', I was torn between ideology and circumstance. I have my own belief and thoughts on this, but there's a studio and cast I'm accountable to, the team of the film I'm accountable to. So I had to put out a statement which I feel terrible about."
‘I've Contributed To This Country In My Own Tiny Way’
The 44-year-old filmmaker says he felt terrible to be in a place in his life where he had to ‘sit in front of the camera' and speak about his ‘nationalism and patriotism'. "I feel I've contributed to this country in my own tiny way over the last 20 years of my career... I've been working in this industry for two decades and the fact that I had to be there and was given the advice to do this," said Karan.
‘I Wanted To Break Into Tears’
Karan counts the apology as one of his top three worst moments in life. "Everyone said it looked like you were going to cry. I wasn't crying and pleading to profess my nationalism. I wanted to break into tears... the fact that I had to do this. It felt like there was an invisible gun on my head," he said.
In the same interview, the director also talked about filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali, who was recently assaulted on the sets of his upcoming film 'Padmavati' in Jaipur.
"I couldn't stop myself when I saw what happened to Sanjay Leela Bhansali because he's a fellow filmmaker. He and I are not best friends but I have great regard for him as a filmmaker and he's a very prominent filmmaker. How dare someone come on that set and assault that man? It's ridiculous," he said.
