Kajol has finally made up her mind. The actress will now star in best mate Karan Joharâ€™s Khan and not Raj Kumar Hiraniâ€™s Idiot.Kajol was being pursued by both directors to star in their respective films and the clashing schedules meant that she would have to pick any one of those films. And it seems after months of convincing Karan has finally got his favourite pairing â€“ Kajol and SRK â€“ signed on for his next project.
â€œKaran was desperate to have Kajol in Khan opposite SRK. He had been trying to convince her for a very long time. But her biggest concern was filming in the US for so long and therefore being away from her daughter Nysa. On the other hand Hiraniâ€™s film was going to be shot here so no question of going away and so Kajol was really torn about making her mind,â€ says a source close to the actress.
But Karan went over to Kajolâ€™s home and spoke to her about making sure that she wouldnâ€™t stay away from home for too long.
â€œThe filming will begin only towards the end of this year. Karan has promised Kajol that she wonâ€™t stay away from her daughter for long periods at a time. Plus with the winter break soon after filming begins there was discussion about Nysa possibly coming over as well to NYC.â€
â€œPlus Karan was still quite emotional about Kajol not making her comeback with himâ€¦so there was some emotional blackmail as well. The two are very close to each other. Kajol and Karan are like brother and sister. Karan has been making a lot of effort as well recently in bonding with Ajay Devgan as well,â€ adds the source.
Joharâ€™s Khan is said to be based on the true life story of a couple living in New York City during 9/11 and the subsequent effects of the incident on their marriage.
