New Delhi, April 1 -- Shah Rukh Khan won't appear on good friend Karan Johar's chat show finale this season, despite much anticipation.
We now have information that the filmmaker will end this season with an episode featuring actors Alia Bhatt and Parineeti Chopra instead.
Although speculations suggest that Karan and SRK's equation may have soured of late, sources close to the show insist that the plan couldn't work out due to "timing issues and nothing else".
"Both Shah Rukh and Karan couldn't take out time to shoot the episode. There's no animosity," says a source.
Interestingly, this year, the other Khans - Aamir and Salman - appeared on the show. KJo remained unavailable for comment.
