It's old news that Imran Khan and Karan Johar don't have much of an equation anymore.

However, one would expect Karan to be warm towards his once blue-eyed boy, especially when they are some of the only few people from Bollywood at a prestigious international conference.

SpotboyE has it that the duo were to speak within hours of each other on two different topics, but not a word was exchanged between the one time thick friends. 

At one point, the two looked through each other, only coming to pose for pictures when eager students asked for selfies.

While Imran spoke about LGBT rights, Karan spoke about the power of the Internet and the world wide web as a form of democracy. It is a no-brainer that Karan has been a vocal supporter of gay rights, so under normal circumstances Imran surely would have had a discussion with him before taking stage.

But that was hardly the case. "Their accommodation was in the same venue, but one never spotted them together even at the coffee shop or any of the restaurants," a source pointed out.

Old wounds take a while to heal. And Imran clearly hasn't forgotten. Not only did KJo drop him like a hot potato from Kapoor & Sons when Sidharth Malhotra rose to stardom, he even got Imran out of Phantom's Bhavesh Joshi, replacing him with Sidharth and promptly stepping in as co-producer to set up the project. All after Punit Malhotra's  Gori Tere Pyar Mein starring him for Dharma production bit the dust.
