BanglaHunt Desk: Everyone knows the goodwill of Bollywood director Karan Johar and director Mahesh Bhatt. Mahesh launches his daughter Alia Bhatt in his film 'Student of the Year'. Not only that, treat Alia like your own daughter.
But there was a time when Mahesh Bhatt could not see Karan. Karan even taunted him as a disgusting, indifferent director. Karan also complained that his father Yash Johar had to go through hardships because of Mahesh.
The time is 1996. At that time, a film directed by Mahesh Bhatt was released called 'Duplicate'. The film starred Shah Rukh Khan, Juhi Chawla and Sonali Bendre. Yash Johar's Dharma Production was in charge of producing the film. In an interview with this picture, Karan expressed his anger. He said he deliberately stayed away from the photo.
The director said that the shooting of this film ended only with the efforts of Shah Rukh Khan and the film was released. With one hand to Mahesh Bhatt, he said, “A film cannot be directed in this way. It is a pity that my father had to go through all the misery. The director had no interest in the film. ”
He further said that his father Yash Johar gave all kinds of freedom to Mahesh Bhatt. But Mahesh did not take any responsibility. Karan also called him a very indifferent director. Only Shah Rukh Khan completed the whole thing on his own responsibility, said Karan.
Karan called the duplicate film a 'shame' of the Bollywood industry. To put it bluntly, he is not happy to be associated with such a picture. But all this is a thing of the past. At present Karan and Mahesh have a good relationship. The director was also heard calling Alia his third child. Forgetting the old bitterness, the two directors have now extended the hand of friendship again.
