That Bollywood friendships are fickle is no news. While some stars have managed to remain friends over the years, few have drifted apart; so much so that they do not see eye to eye.

Kajol and Karan Johar became the best of buddies ever since they worked together in Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge (1995). In fact, it’s well-known that KJo considered Kajol his lucky charm which is why the actress made a cameo appearance in most of his films. However, things took a turn for the worse last year during the Ae Dil Hai Mushkil and Shivaay clash.

The fallout took place when Ajay Devgn accused Karan of paying Rs 25 lakh to sabotage Shivaay. Kajaol reacted to the situation by putting out a tweet which read ‘Shocked’. Needless to say, it hurt the filmmaker to no end and it was over between them. Karan Johar has dedicated a chapter to his soured friendship with Kajol in his autobiography – An Unsuitable Boy.

Arjun Rampal, Mehr Jessia, Hrithik Roshan and Sussanne Khan were often seen hanging out together. However, things went downhill between the close friends when reports of Arjun’s closeness to Sussanne began doing the rounds. In fact, it is said that Arjun-Sussanne’s link-up was the reason behind the latter’s divorce with Hrithik. As things stand today, Arjun and Hrithik don’t see eye to eye.

Priyanka Chopra and Kareena Kapoor Khan hit it off while working in Aitraaz (2004). The two would often been seen spending time after pack up and were all praise for each other. But, soon after the film, reports of a rift between the ladies began doing the rounds.  Around the time Kareena was filming for, Heroine, the actress had said that it was better than any of Madhur Bhandarkar's previous films, including, Fashion. Priyanka retaliated at the snide remark, and said, "I guess if you don't have a national award, it's just sour grapes." Ouch!

Even on Koffee with Karan, the actresses did not refrain from taking potshots at each other.

Salman Khan - Sanjay Dutt

Salman Khan And Sanjay Dutt Have Starred In A Number Of Films Together

Salman Khan and Sanjay Dutt were close friends for a long time. They starred in numerous films together and have also hosted Bigg Boss. But ever since Dutt was released from prison, the two have been avoiding each other. Reason? Salman Khan's ex-manager Reshma brought you the inside scoop as to what went wrong. The story goes thus. When Sanjay was out on parole in December 2014, he was advised by Salman to hire Reshma. Salman's reason was simple - you'll soon be released from jail and you will need a manager to handle your work, be it getting you movies or building your image. Accordingly, Sanjay took her on board, however, even after many months of waiting, he did not land a single project. When he made inquiries in the industry, Sanjay found that Reshma and her team had hiked his price to such an extent that producers, who were keen on casting him in their ventures, were considering other options. Sanjay reportedly got miffed and confronted Reshma, after which the two parted ways professionally. This apparently didn't go down too well with Salman and differences cropped up between the two.

Akshay Kumar - Farah Khan

Akshay Kumar and Farah Khan shared a great rapport since their early days in Bollywood. The superstar proved that he is a loyal friend when he starred in Farah's husband Shirish Kunder's debut directorial Jaan-e-mann (2006). Akshay then starred in Farah’s directorial, Tees Maar Khan (2010). However, the film proved to be a box-office and reports claim that Akshay wasn't too happy with the end product. However, it was during his next film with Shirish, Joker (2013), that things spiralled downwards between Farah and Akshay. Akki felt that the film didn't turn out to be what was promised to him at the start, and thus he withdrew himself from the promotions. This hurt Farah and she said that Akshay should be a thorough professional and shouldn't back out from a film at the last moment. A number of years have passed since the time and reports also suggest that the two have buried the hatchet, but this friendship has definitely suffered an irreparable dent.
