Veteran actress Farida Jalal, who recently made a strong comeback with Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Heeramandi: The Diamond Bazaar, has accused Karan Johar of quickly changing loyalties.

“Back in the day, Karan Johar… I don’t know what he’s like nowadays, loyalties shift very fast. He doesn’t have any role for me in his films these days, even though they wouldn’t make a film without me at one point. His father, Yash Johar, was one of my favorite producers. What a man, what a gem of a person! He’d call me up and say, ‘Dekhiye Farida, hero ka role toh baad mein likha jaata hai, aapka role pehle likha jaata hai (We write your character even before we’ve decided where to go with the protagonist)’,” said Jalal in an interview with Bollywood Bubble.

She also shared, “I first met Karan on the sets of
Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge
, because he was Aditya Chopra’s right hand man on that film. We became very close. He would tell me that he’s going to make a film, and Kajol, Shah Rukh and I were all with him. He came to tell me the story of Kuch Kuch Hota Hai… It is still his best film, and I’m not just saying this because I was in it.It was a very sensitive film. He would write each and every word, every scene himself. I cried when he narrated the film to me.”

On the professional front, she has joined Ahmed Khan’s Welcome To The Jungle. The film also features Akshay Kumar, Arshad Warsi, Paresh Rawal, Johnny Lever, Rajpal Yadav, Tusshar Kapoor, Shreyas Talpade, Krushna Abhishek, Kiku Sharda, Daler Mehndi, Mika Singh, Sayaji Shinde, Mukesh Tiwari, Zakir Hussain, Yashpal Sharma. Adding to the charm are talented actresses Raveena Tandon, Lara Dutta, Jacqueline Fernandez, Disha Patani and dynamic Vrihi Kodvara.

Jio Studios and Base Industries Group present ‘ Welcome To The Jungle ’, produced by Jyoti Deshpande and Firoz A. Nadiadwallah and Directed by Ahmed Khan. The film is currently in pre-production and is set for a grand theatrical release on ‘20th December 2024’.
