It was reported, although Kajol is one of Shah Rukh Khan's closest friends, the actress always maintained a distance from her Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge co-star
Post the success of Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge, Shah Rukh Khan, Kajol became the most talked-about actors; their friendship was also gaining limelight, more than Kajol and Ajay Devgn's affair.
Many filmmakers wanted to sign SRK and Kajol after their magical on-screen romance in DDLJ, but according to reports, Ajay who was then dating Kajol wanted her to maintain a distance from Khan. An insider had told a daily, "People were talking less about Kajol's relationship with Ajay and more about her friendship with SRK. All this took a toll on Ajay who felt sidelined.''
According to the insider, Ajay was not able to handle his competitor, King Khan to have an amazing relationship with the woman he was planning to get married. ''He allegedly couldn't handle the pressure of everyone talking about the chemistry his competitor shared with the women he was dating. He allegedly told her that she would have to stop working with Shahrukh" the insider said.
In an interview, when Shah Rukh Khan was asked about the report, he said, "I wouldn't really know if Ajay has put any condition. If Kajol doesn't work with me because Ajay does not want her to, I will respect it.''
SRK also took a dig at Ajay, by saying he would never have told his wife to do such things, He said, ''But I don't really think this has happened. It's quite strange. If Gauri was an actress, I wouldn't tell her whom to work with and who not to."
When media asked Kajol that if her husband and Shah Rukh share cold vibes, she had said, "If two people are not friends, that doesn't mean they are enemies. I have said this earlier also. Just because they don't party together and you don't see them clicking selfies, that doesn't mean that they hate each other or bad-mouth each other."
Kajol also added and cleared it that Shah Rukh is her best friend and that Ajay never forced her friendships on him, "Yes, Shah Rukh is my friend, and I have been obvious that my friends are mine and I have never imposed my friendships on Ajay, and he has never done it either. We are both very clear about it. You need to give people that space.''
Kajol and SRK were last seen in 2015 movie Dilwale along with Varun Dhawan and Kriti Sanon, and the movie didn't make an impact at the box-office.
