It used to be an accepted fact that Karan Johar and Shahrukh Khan were like bosom pals, two sides of the same coin and they would never get away from each other. However, those who follow Hindi cinema, be as fans or as commentators on the manner in which cinema has been developing would have come to realize that Karan Johar and Shahrukh Khan are drifting away from each other and Karan Johar has started developing a bonding with Salman Khan. It was the result of this bonding that when the fourth season of Karan Johar's show Koffee With Karan opened, it was Salman Khan who was the first guest on the show.


One was left amazed that in the interview Salman Khan opened up like anything and shared perhaps so many secrets of his life which journalists would give their right hand to, to let it go as there by-line. It perhaps was a manifestation of the scale of friendship that has developed between Salman Khan and Karan Johar that Salman dropped all guards and went bindaas sharing his secrets, and at some places also offered comments like- I am Still virgin- which became a rage and was commented on the social media in one way or the other.

The moot point was, that an actor or for that matter an individual discusses about his personal life and sex with another individual when he has developed a real confidence in him and for Salman who has always kept himself away from talking on subjects like sex to offer a comment on it, indeed is a pointer that this friendship has scaled new heights.

The moot point is, whether Salman Khan now wishes to be directed by Karan Johar as Karan Johar has evolved into a director in Hindi cinema who is shaping up new idiom of film making, it could be either as a producer or as a director. Karan Johar has not directed a film with Salman Khan at all, if one were to discount KUCH KUCH HOTA HAI, where Salman Khan had a guest role.

It is Karan Johar who could deconstruct Salman Khan and present him in a manner that he did with Shah Rukh Khan. Shah Rukh Khan has already been deconstructed by Rohit Shetty through CHENNAI EXPRESS and he has moved to the masses, and for Salman Khan who is a darling of the masses, it is Karan Johar who could elevate Salman Khan through a role to elevate himself as a darling of the class as well. It seems it's time for calling a role reversal for the two superstars Salman Khan and Shahrukh Khan

Once this happens the transformation of both Salman Khan and Shahrukh Khan would be complete, Shahrukh already having become a darling of the masses and Salman aspiring to become a classy star so with the help of Karan Johar.
