By Urvi Parikh, Glamsham EditorialIt is rightly said that nothing is permanent in Bollywood. Kajol, who was once close to the Chopra clan, is now ignored from the YRF events.
With the announcement of late filmmaker Yash Chopra's wife Pamela Chopra plan for a grand celebration for the director's birthday on September 27, sparked rumors of Kajol not being invited at the event. Nine actresses - Katrina Kaif, Anushka Sharma, Parineeti Chopra, Preity Zinta, Rani Mukerji, Juhi Chawla, Madhuri Dixit, Sridevi and Rekha along with Shahrukh Khan, as the showstopper, paid tribute to the legendary filmmaker at a fashion show organized at the YRF studios. But Kajol, who gave the banner their longest running and highest grossing film till date DILWALE DULHANIA LE JAAYENGE, was royally ignored.
The differences arised when Ajay Devgn's SON OF SARDAR release clashed with Yash Chopra's JAB TAK HAI JAAN. Ajay Devgn got offended over the number of screens allotted for JAB TAK HAI JAAN being higher as compared to that of SON OF SARDAR, thus compelling him to file a court case. Devgn alleged Yash Raj Films to have used their power to achieve a grand release for their film, thereby affecting the release and business of SON OF SARDAR. But between all this, the matter got worst for Ajay Devgn's wife Kajol, who shared a good rapport with YRF. Though the actress kept mum over the entire issue, showing her quandary, she had to face the music.
So when, Pamela Chopra and Shahrukh Khan decided to fulfill veteran filmmaker's last wish to have a grand premiere of his last film JAB TAK HAI JAAN, Kajol was not invited to the premiere. But when the two films released and did well at the Box-office, respectively, everyone thought now the camp will mend their (pointless) differences with Kajol. However, it didn't happen so. Due to this controversy, the actress was blacklisted from all the YRF events, for no fault of her.
But when late Yash Chopra's birthday celebration was declared and the names of only six actresses were revealed and three were kept under wraps, there was a slight hope to catch the actress at the celebration, despite the speculations about Kajol not being a part of it.
However, with yesterday's event things have become crystal clear now! Thus, making her ouster from the YRF camp quite evident!
