Kajol has patched up with her long-time buddy Karan Johar and Ajay may have mellowed down as well. Unlike his wife who has a very active social life among her industry circles, Ajay does not have many Bollywood friends whom he needs to please. Kajol and Karan had fallen out during the release of Shivaay, which coincided, with the release of Karan’s Ae Dil Hai Mushkil.

Now, to avoid one more clash, Ajay has pushed his film on the battle of Saragarhi, which he was to make as the second instalment of Son of Sardar. The same battle is supposed to feature on the Karan, Akshay Kumar and Salman Khan collaboration. However, Ajay says that he has no issue with Karan Johar proceeding with his film with his friend Akshay in the lead, even if the film is on the same subject.

A source close to Ajay informs us that Ajay’s film on the subject is under research, as Ajay wants to make a comprehensive film on the battle between 21 soldiers of the British Indian Army and 10,000 Afghan tribesmen, which took place on September 12, 1897. Raj Kumar Santoshi had already started the same project with Randeep Hooda in the lead, but the film is now in the backburner. Sources close to Salman however confirm that he has backed out of producing the film. It will be interesting to see if Karan actually proceeds on the project without Salman.
