A lot has been said about their infamous fallout, but actor Priyanka Chopra’s recent appearance at filmmaker Karan Johar’s 40th birthday bash has put the rumour mill to rest. KJo has extended the olive branch to Piggy Chops, and he reveals he has let go of the “unfortunate” incident.
“There’s nothing to say (about Priyanka). It’s all good in the hood. What happened was in the past and we are perfectly great with each other now.
We have mutual admiration for each other, both personally and professionally, and it’s all good,” says Johar, who had lashed out at Chopra in response to an article published in a Mumbai tabloid that had the actor’s friends defending her position in her alleged affair with actor Shah Rukh Khan.
Moving on, the filmmaker is now focussed on his stint as a judge on the fifth season of dance reality TV show, Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa, along with veteran actor and Bollywood beauty Madhuri Dixit, and choreographer Remo D’Souza. Ask if the audiences will also get to see him shaking a leg, and he says, “I hope to break a leg than shake a leg, so that I don’t have to do it.”
But not even with dance diva Madhuri? “Who can afford to shake a leg with Madhuri? Nobody should even dare to shake a leg with Madhuri in the same frame..So no, it won’t happen,” says the 40-year-old, who, on the film front, is focusing more on production than direction. “I’m more interested in filmmaking than directing,” he concludes.
