Little did Karan Johar know that the excerpts from her biography An Unsuitable Boy about her friendship-gone-sour with Kajol, will take his fallout with her and Ajay Devgn to another level.

The war of words between Karan and Ajay has just gotten uglier as a source close to Ajay Devgn has slammed Karan Johar’s explaination of why Kajol “can never come back” to his life. As per a report on The Hindustan Times, the said source claims that Karan is doing all this only to seek attention and sell his book. “Karan is doing this just to sell his book. The whole industry knows that Karan bitches about people behind their back. Even Shah Rukh Khan was upset with Karan because of his comments against Priyanka Chopra,” said the source.

On the condition to remain anonymous, the source revealed, “Two years ago at a party, Karan indulged in really loose talk about Kajol in front of an A-list actor. That actor, in turn, told Ajay Devgn about it. Ajay even asked that actor why, despite being Karan’s friend, is he telling him about it. The actor said that if Karan could badmouth Kajol in front of him, he could also gossip about him someday. Ajay was obviously furious – any man would be if his wife was talked about in such light. So he called Karan and abused him on the phone. He told Karan that ‘you can say what you wish about my film but don’t talk about my wife and family.’”

The source further added, “This issue is two years old. Much before the clash between Karan’s film (Ae Dil Hai Mushkil) and Ajay’s film (Shivaay) happened. The fact that it is being discussed now, and so is Karan’s sexual orientation, is clearly to remain in news to sell his book. He can do whatever he wishes, but he can’t make a villain out of Ajay Devgn in that process. This is just playing dirty.”

Both Ajay Devgn and Kajol have not given any official statement on the matter till now. but looks like the fallout is getting uglier day by day.

For the ones who have come in late, after excerpts about Karan Johar’s sexual orientation from his biography went viral and sparks off a debate pf sorts, another excerpt from the same book started grabbing the eyeballs as Karan has penned down his thoughts on his equation with once-good-friend Kajol.

He begins by writing, “This issue is two years old. Much before the clash between Karan’s film (Ae Dil Hai Mushkil) and Ajay’s film (Shivaay) happened. The fact that it is being discussed now, and so is Karan’s sexual orientation, is clearly to remain in news to sell his book. He can do whatever he wishes, but he can’t make a villain out of Ajay Devgn in that process. This is just playing dirty,” and then reveals how the dynamics of their equation changed prior to the release of his last directorial Ae Dil Hai Mushkil, which clashed with Ajay Devgn’s directorial Shivaay at the box office. He writes, “Prior to the release of Ae Dil Hai Mushkil, a lot happened. Things were said, crazy accusations were made against me, that I had bribed someone to sabotage the image of her husband’s film. I wouldn’t like to give a piece of myself to her at all because she’s killed every bit of emotion I had for her for twenty five years. I don’t think she deserves me. I feel nothing for her anymore.”

Choosing to focus only on his and Kajol’s friendship, Karan also reveals why he wouldn’t say anything about Ajay Devgn, “I don’t even want to speak about her husband because it’s inconsequential to my life now. He doesn’t matter to me, he never did. I still don’t want to say anything about her husband because I want to respect the history she and I shared.”

What new turns will this war of words take, that only time will tell. Watch this space for more updates…
