Everyone knows that Karan Johar and Shah Rukh Khan are friends. Maybe not as close as they were at one point, but they’re friends, and hence, the ‘Kuch Kuch Hota Hai’ director would never publicly promote an anti-SRK tweet. Correct? Which is why all hell broke loose on Twitter, when Karan ‘liked’ a hate tweet on the ‘Baadshah of Bollywood’, and that’s when #ShameOnKaranJohar began trending.
Once the backlash began, however, Karan Johar, ‘unliked’ the said tweet, with a clarification message saying he was having a ‘technical problem’ with his Twitter account, hence the random ‘likes’ and even uploading a ‘shoe picture’.
Twitterati, however, did not spare the director for a while. Which is when Shah Rukh Khan stepped in to the rescue of his old friend. In a witty as ever ‘clarification’, Shah Rukh called Karan ‘technologically challenged’ and added that ‘just like life, Twitter doesn’t come with instructions, so mistakes are natural’.
This made the director heave a sigh of relief and get back to promoting the latest song from his upcoming film, Kalank – First Class.
Shah Rukh and Karan’s friendship goes back a long way, but due to some reason, the two don’t seem to share the bond they did a few years ago. Find out what led to the two growing apart, here.
