True friends don't mind taking cheeky digs at each other. Karan Johar and Shah Rukh Khan keep having random conversations on social media and they were at it again on Republic Day when they exchanged a series of cheeky tweets.
It all started with Johar praising Khan and his newly-released film Raees.
The conversation then veered towards Khan telling Johar to make an action film that would be titled Dishoom Dishoom Hota Hai, with Johar agreeing to do so if Khan promised to ghost direct it.

Speaking of ghost directing, Johar reminded fans how Khan had directed some action scenes in Kuch Kuch Hota Hai (1998).
I have always directed ur action scenes. Every scene where I run furiously after the ladies and hold their hand!! https://t.co/T6vgITRlFw— Shah Rukh Khan (@iamsrk) January 26, 2017

Well, the ball was now in Khan's court.

Johar also mentioned how versatility was never his forte.
