Karan Johar given clean chit in 14 year old case
14 years ago, the Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol-starrer Khabhi Khushi Kabhi Gam released and was declared a huge blockbuster. However, with the film’s gigantic success, came in an unexpected legal headache for the film’s director Karan Johar.
In April 2002, a Lucknow court summoned Karan Johar in a criminal case following a petition against the filmmaker on charges of insulting the national anthem in the movie. Several hearings continued and the case kept haunting the filmmaker since then.
Yesterday, Karan finally got a major relief when the court took into consideration that the film was cleared by the then CBFC panel which didn’t find anything objectionable, and gave a clean chit to Karan Johar from the criminal case.
