If Ram Gopal Varma has his way, then Karan Johar has landed a role in Phoonk 3. Varma told HT City, "I’ve completed scripting Phoonk 3 and I’m planning to approach Karan Johar to act opposite the crow."
This came as a reaction to KJo’s comments at the DVD launch of My Name Is Khan where he had said, “I have heard that Ram Gopal Varma said that the scariest movie he has ever watched is (my) Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna. I have not seen Phoonk or Phoonk 2, and I hope Phoonk 3 never gets made.”
Johar had also reacted to RGV’s comment about KANK on Twitter. “Early morning dreams come true? I dreamt I was watching Phoonk 2 and holding RGV’s hand in fear. Is this possible?” he posted.To this, Varma tweeted, “Well, I don’t know about Phoonk 2, but I’m scared of the Karan Johar hand holding part.”
Johar then shot back, “It’s true.” This friction between the filmmakers isn’t new. In 2008, Johar posted on his blog, “I don’t hate RGV. Hate is too strong an emotion to waste on anyone. I regard some of his work and I am indifferent to others. He’s no friend of mine and will never be.”
