The major fallout between the actress and the director came last year due to the theatrical clash between Shivaay and Ae Dil Hai Mushkil.

There have been recent reports about Kajol and Karan Johar rekindling their old and long-standing friendship. The bitterness between them had erupted last year when Kajol’s husband Ajay Devgn’s Shivaay had clashed with Johar’s Ae Dil Hai Mushkil at the box office on Diwali.
Devgn was asked about his reaction on the renewal of friendship between the two while he was promoting his upcoming film Baadshaho. He said, “I have never ever spoken about personal topics and issues. So this is something very personal, I really wouldn’t like to talk about it. I’ve maintained this, in general, that I do not speak about personal life.”
Problems in Kajol and Johar’s friendship started off when Devgn shared an audio sting operation of actor and self-styled film critic Kamal Rashid Khan aka KRK. The recoding alleged that Johar had paid KRK to badmouth Shivaay. Johar was deeply hurt when Kajol too shared the audio clip on social media.
Earlier in the year, Johar had confirmed his end of friendship with Kajol in his book, An Unsuitable Boy. “I don’t have a relationship with Kajol anymore. We’ve had a fallout. Something happened that disturbed me deeply which I will not talk about because it’s something that I like to protect and I feel it would not be fair to her or to me. After two and a half decades, Kajol and I don’t talk at all. We just acknowledge each other, say ‘hello’ and walk past,” read an excerpt from the book.
