Bhansali and KJo back to being friends?


Not many people know filmmakers Sanjay Leela Bhansali and Karan Johar have always made it a point to watch each other’s films, come what may. And while this may not be a big deal for Karan who watches a majority of new releases, for Sanjay, who hardly ever watches movies, making the trip to a suburban theatre to see Karan’s latest film was no mean feat. On Saturday afternoon, a day after Karan’s Student of the Year hit theatres, onlookers at this multiplex were surprised to see Sanjay and Karan, directors who’ve otherwise never missed an opportunity to take pot shots at each other, greet and hug each other warmly. Apparently, Sanjay was there at the multiplex to catch a show of SOTY. And Karan was theatre-hopping the same day to check out the audience’ response to his film. An eyewitness told TOI, “Karan was very touched to see the reclusive Sanjay at the theatre watching his film. They met very warmly and spoke about Student of the Year.”
