Shah Rukh Khan and Karan Johar are two of Bollywood’s wittiest personalities. So what happens when these two decide to chat up on social media? We get to witness a witty banter. That’s exactly what happened yesterday when KJo, being a sweetheart, lauded Shah Rukh’s performance in Raees. Here’s the thing about people who have a sarcastic humour, they’ll never take compliments but turn it around and kid about it. That’s exactly what Khan did when his best friend continued to gush about just how fantastic his performance was in the Rahul Dholakia film. It started with Karan saying, “And….#RAEES has been watched and LOVED! Full on paisa vasool SUPERHIT!!! @iamsrk iamsrk nails the part to perfection! He’s smouldering!!!” And continued, “Congratulations Bhai!! @iamsrk ….you are just amazing in the film!! Congratulations team #raees @ritesh_sid @FarOutAkhtar @rahuldholakia” (ALSO READ – 7 similarities we found between Shah Rukh Khan’s Raees and Hrithik Roshan’s Kaabil that you have overlooked)

Of course, with so many praises, the 51 year old actor had to crack up the otherwise gushy moment. So he replied, “Now u should also make an intense action film. U have it in u. Dishoom Dishoom Hota Hai.” Yes, Shah Rukh, we’d definitely want to see a movie titled that because there’s absolutely nothing dirty about how it sounds (wink). You might think he owned the director by this one tweet but no, the banter went on as Karan asked the actor to come onboard as the ghost director for the titled-next. The trolling continued as SRK said that he was the one who directed all the “action” scenes in KJo films, “I have always directed ur action scenes. Every scene where I run furiously after the ladies and hold their hand!!”

And….#RAEES has been watched and LOVED! Full on paisa vasool SUPERHIT!!! @iamsrk iamsrk nails the part to perfection! He’s smouldering!!!

Johar played it subtle once again by crediting the actor for the famous basketball sequence in Kuch Kuch Hota Hai, “Haha!! That’s true and it’s time to tell everyone you directed the basketball scenes in kuch kuch as well!!!” With this, a new idea of movie making popped up in Khan’s head as he said the filmmaker’s next should be Ae Dangal Hai Mushkil yahaan, “So maybe a sports film as well. Ae Dangal Hai Mushkil yahaan.” It definitely sounds like these boys were on a totally different trip! Once again, you would’ve expected them to shut the shop and put their mobile phones aside but that didn’t happen. The Ae Dil Hai Mushkil director was having a gala time in this Twitter banter so he let it continue. His next statement was, “Your widening my genre choices Bhai!!! You know versatility is not my strength!!!!” To this, the comeback chosen by Shah Rukh literally shut Johar up! He said, “Now now don’t be modest. U r so versatile your last three films’name didn’t start with a ‘K’” All Karan could manage to say was, “Haha!!!!!!!!!” to it.

That’s when the whole banter came to an end. Wow, clearly you can never win with Shah Rukh in the war of words. He has the best answers that can make you feel rather irrelevant. We’re not suggesting that he did the same with his buddy, no. This must be a usual thing happening between KJo and Shah Rukh. They’ve been close buds for such a long time now. We, LOVED this entire string of conversation. For many reasons actually. Khan’s wit is quite orgasmic so while we were going through the tweets, we were totally falling flat for him. Second, we witnessed their friendship on another level. Generally there’s a lot of mushy talk when on camera, but these two showed how real friends are by their Twitter exchange. Thirdly, the trolling made us rofl!

We’d definitely like to see more of this as both the buddies bring the house down. Stay tuned to this space for hot scoop and latest updates.
