Karan Johar and Shahrukh KhanKaran Johar made a shocking revelation that Shahrukh Khan is not his best friend, and after that he quickly added that SRK is like his big brother. this revelation come out when a curious journo asked the 40-year-old filmmaker about his best buddy in a party of KJo’s next film ‘Student Of The Year’.

When everyone ears were anticipating to hear the one name in response – Shahrukh Khan – but KJo surprised everyone by stating that King Khan was not his best friend. He said, “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 friend.”

Uh, oh! And we thought Shahrukh Khan, who has featured in almost every film KJo has made so far (barring SOTY…yet), would definitely qualify as his best friend. “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,” explained Karan.

Now that answer surprised us and we couldn’t help thinking about what stopped Shahrukh Khan, the big brother of KJo, from being his best buddy too. We will definitely ask Shahrukh this question when we bump into him next time!
