Several Bollywood celebrities, including Shah Rukh Khan, Alia Bhatt, Varun Dhawan, Farah Khan and Arjun Kapoor, were seen having fun at the recent party thrown by filmmaker Karan Johar at his Dharma Productions' office. The party was held to bid goodbye to the office at Khar in Mumbai, as Karan is reportedly shifting to a new larger space on the other side of the town.
KJo's close friend Shah Rukh sported a cool air in casual wear, while Alia, Varun, Arjun and other stars also came dressed in a relaxed look, and happily posed for the shutterbugs.
It was reported a few days ago that Dharma Productions was going through a financial crisis and so Karan would not produce his dream project, "Shuddhi" and Ayan Mukerji's superhero movie. However, later reports of him approaching Salman Khan for "Shuddhi" put some of those speculations at rest.
"It's nothing really serious. But yes, there is financial crisis. This is why Karan is pulling out of uncertain projects like 'Shuddhi' which Karan Malhotra was going to direct for him, and the super-hero film that Karan was going to produce with Ranbir Kapoor in the lead and Ayan Mukerji as director," a source told SKJ Bollywood News.
The source added that this is the reason Dharma is not taking too many new projects. In fact, Karan is depending a lot on the box office performance of his upcoming directorial venture, "Ae Dil Hai Mushkil." Scheduled to be released on Oct. 28, it features Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Ranbir Kapoor, Fawad Khan and Anushka Sharma in pivotal roles.
It cannot be said whether the rumour regarding the financial crisis is true or not, as Karan's move to a bigger new office hints at the contrary. Meanwhile, take a look at the pictures of the farewell party held at Dharma's old office in this slideshow:
