Now the truth can be told! It was not a Shah Rukh-Ajay contest. It was apparently not even a case of Yash Raj being a box-office bully. But the REAL reason for the 'Jab Tak Hai Jaan'-'Son of Sardaar' war has its roots elsewhere!
Word has it that it all began with 'Bol Bachchan', when Ajay requested Yash Raj Films for a portion of the song 'Kajra Re' to use in the film. Buzz is that YRF asked for five lakhs to lend this to him! And this upset his wife Kajol considering she has worked in their films, and done cameos for YRF free of charge.
Apparently, Ajay agreed to pay the amount for the 90-second sequence of the song. But even as he was about to do so, YRF reportedly hiked the amount to 25lakhs! By now, Kajol was apparently furious and Ajay too was upset. A friend of Ajay says, "She was really upset but Ajay consoled her saying it was all part of the business."
Things only got worse when Kajol (heroine of one of YRF's biggest hits - 'Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge') was not invited to the premiere of 'Jab Tak Hai Jaan'! And yet the event was tom-tommed as sporting all the YRF heroines! This definitely upset Ajay who felt that Kajol had nothing to do with the box-office war of 'JTHJ' and 'SOS'. He firmly states, "Yes, Kajol was not seen at the premiere as she was not invited."
