Rumor has it that all is not well between filmmaker Karan Johar and actor
after the debacle on their last film, Gori Tere Pyaar Mein.
Gori Tere Pyar Mein, with Imran and Kareena Kapoor playing the lead, was released in November 2013 and failed miserably at the box office. Johar apparently blamed Khan for the dismal performance of the film, and the two had a showdown.
Meanwhile, Karan's absence at Imran and his wife Avantika's baby shower is being termed conspicuous by many. Karan had always been a frequent guest at the Khan's during better times.

Imran Khan made his Bollywood debut with Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na in 2008 which worked like a catapult to launch him in the industry. He also worked with big banner Dharma Productions in movies like I Hate Luv Storys and Ek Main Hu Aur Ekk Tu, both of which did well on the silver screen.
However, Imran's stars are not supporting him lately as his performances have been unable to gather any appreciation. With Gori Tere Pyar Mein sinking as bad as it did, producer Karan is seemingly trying to blame the young actor.
The fight has perhaps reached a point of no return as it is being said that Imran has offered to return the paycheck for Gori tere Pyaar Mein.
