We all know KJo's infamous remarks that he tried to murder Anushka's career and get Adi to replace her with an "established" (code for nepo) actress. Online I'm hearing people say that Sonam was the actress KJo was pushing Adi to cast instead.


Despite Aditya’s confidence in Anushka Sharma, his best friend and filmmaker Karan Johar wasn’t convinced with her looks and he tried to ‘sabotage’ her career before it even began. During the 18th MAMI Mumbai Film Festival in 2016, Karan admitted to advising Aditya against casting Anushka in the film and instead suggested another leading actor.

He said, “I totally wanted to, completely murder Anushka Sharma’s career. Because when Aditya Chopra showed me her image, I was like, ‘no, no, mad or what, you signing her, you crazy! There is no need for you to sign this Anushka Sharma’. There was another lead actress at that time who I wanted Adi to sign and I was totally behind the scene sabotaging her completely. The movie also… I was reluctantly watching Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi.”
