Arjun Rampal has signed a film with Pritish Nandy's company; so what's the big deal? Well, Arjun Rampal, who has been very close to SRK may not be aware of the possible ramifications.
Actor Arjun Rampal has recently signed a horror film with Pritish Nandy's daughter Rongita Nandy. This comes as a surprise to many possibly because Arjun Rampal has been pretty close to Shah Rukh Khan and Karan Johar. So, what is this a big deal?
SRK and KJo have never got along with Pritish Nandy and the animosity between the two camps is almost legendary, reported Mumbai Mirror. It is believed that once KJo and SRK's wife Gauri went for a screening of Shabd, a film made under the Pritish Nandy Communications (PNC) banner. And believe it or not, Rongita Nandy actually asked them to leave.

This war has been on for the last six years and the two camps have been fairly rigid. "Arjun is not even aware of any problems between Karan, SRK and PNC," a source told the tabloid.
Rongita Nandy confirmed that Arjun was going to work in her film and even the source insisted that all was well between SRK and Arjun and they were still great friends.
Perhaps, now with Arjun becoming a part of the 'other' camp might actually be able to negotiate truce? Who knows?
