It was just yesterday, Karan Johar’s production Dharma announced its collaboration with talent management company Cornerstone owned by Sohail Khan’s brother-in-law Bunty Sajdeh. But today rumours of Karan Johar’s friendship turning sour with good friend and celebrity manager Reshma Shetty have hit the web. Yes, you heard that right! KJo has reportedly ended ties with good friend Reshma after an ugly fall out. According to a report in Bollywood Hungama, KJo and Reshma, who have been thick and close buddies, have reportedly parted ways.
As per the same report, Karan Johar has decided to end the contracts of his protégés with Reshma Shetty’s talent company and move on to join hands with Cornerstone. A source close to them revealed to Bollywood Hungama, “It’s difficult to say what went wrong. But it seems that the fallout has been ugly. Karan has decided to ensure that his protégés end the contract with Reshma’s company Matrix and shift to another talent management company, Cornerstone.” Cornerstone recently came into the limelight after Sushant Singh Rajput’s death as it managed the late star and his girlfriend Rhea Chakraborty.
For those who don’t know, Reshma Shetty’s Matrix, at present handles some of the most prominent celebs and KJo’s close buddies like Alia Bhatt, Varun Dhawan, Katrina Kaif, Vicky Kaushal, Sidharth Malhotra, Janhvi Kapoor, Ishaan Khatter, Shashank Khaitan and Manish Malhotra.
In his memoir 'An Unsuitable Boy', Karan Johar has penned about Reshma. He has written how deeply he feels connected to her. He wrote in his memoir, “I take her advice on professional decisions very seriously. I’m very dependent on her take on work and people. I’ve built a bond with her over the years and it’s very solid.” KJo has even mentioned about Reshma that just like him even she’s unmarried and very close to her own mother.
