It’s not just Karan Johar who has had a fall out with Kajol. It appears that Ajay Devgn and Kajol have a cold war brewing with one of their family members too, and its been on for many years now.

Onlookers were stunned when the star couple didn’t acknowledge the presence of Kajol's cousin Rani Mukherji at an awards do in Mumbai on Saturday, 25 March.

At the HT Style Awards, Devgn and Kajol gave the cold shoulder to Rani Mukherji. In a video that has been doing the rounds online, we can see that the Devgn couple is greeted by Shahid Kapoor, who is seated close to Rani, as they walk across the hall. The star couple greets and hugs Kapoor, Sidharth Malhotra, Alia Bhatt and others, but don’t meet Rani. Devgn and Kajol then quietly slip at the back.

Interestingly, Kajol's sister Tanishaa is seen greeting and hugging Rani. 

Rani sure must have seen the duo, but fortunately for her, she didn’t have to face them as the Mardaani actress was called up on the stage to receive her woman of substance award. 

We also see that while everyone in the hall was clapping for Rani, the Devgn couple just completely ignored what was happening on stage. 

Rani and Kajol never really got along like a house on fire. But their relationship soured further after Devgn had a box office tussle with Yash Raj Films in 2013. Devgn’s Son of Sardaar had clashed with YRF’s Jab Tak Hain Jaan in 2012. Back then, Devgn had accused YRF of unfairly trying to hog more screens. As the world knows, Rani Mukherji is married to Yash Raj Films’ head honcho, Aditya Chopra.

It looks like the Devgn-Chopra imbroglio has taken its toll on the Kajol-Rani relationship too.
