MUMBAI— After all the bitterness, it’s time for bonhomie. And nothing aids it more than a grand success and good friends. After Kajol brought about the initial rapprochement between Karan Johar and Ajay Devgn, it was time for Johar and another Devgn buddy Rohit Shetty to join hands for “Simmba,” starring Devgn in an important cameo. With the film’s blockbuster success, Johar and Devgn are now like buddies.
What’s more, we would not be surprised even to see Devgn, Kajol or both together in a future Johar film. As of now, Shetty and Johar are producing “Sooryavanshi” with Akshay Kumar (who was also in a cameo in “Simmba” as the ATS officer of the forthcoming Shetty-Johar production). Kumar joined the ‘Simmba” success party in Johar’s home, breaking all rules and staying almost until midnight with Ranveer Singh, Rohit Shetty, Kajol, and the two newfound friends.
Akshay Kumar has always vocalized his eagerness to do multi-hero films, and maybe it is all coming around as he had predicted during the “2.0” interviews. And yes, Kumar too is fast becoming a Johar favorite after “Brothers” (a flop), “2.0,” “Simmba” and now his home production “Kesari” as well as “Good News” and “Sooryavanshi.”
