Shahrukh in a hurry to complete Chennai Express with Deepika

We’ve all heard the news that Deepika Padukone by Shahrukh Khan and Karan Johar was forced to cancel her trip with Ranbir Kapoor to promote their new film Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani. 

Shahrukh Khan and Karan Johar are known to be close pals, so close that Karan Johar has publicly claimed more than a dozen times that he respects King Khan and considers him more than a brother. The only time we heard a riff between the two was when Karan Johar cold-shouldered Priyanka Chopra upon hearing rumours of her having an affair with Shahrukh Khan were doing the rounds. However, that issue was quicky resolved by Karan choosing to break the ice with Priyanka, which he insists never existed anyway and their friendship remains the same as before.

Seemingly, there could be some problems between Karan and SRK’s friendship. Reports suggest that Shahrukh Khan has refused to give Deepika Padukone time off so that she could promote her new upcoming film, Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani, which is a Dharma Productions’ project. Looks like Shahrukh and Rohit Shetty are in a hurry to complete Chennai Express and secure the Eid release date. Karan needs Deepika to promote his film abroad and would’ve wanted her to accompany Ranbir for the promotional tour. Ranbir Kapoor is also not keen to go without Deepika to promote the movie and this might end up hurting the film’s collections.
