Karan told HT:”Salman and I worked together in my very first feature film. In 1998, Salman played a very little part in Kuch Kuch Hota Hai. Of course, working with him was an honour, and I think he is one of our best actors and one of the finest people I know.”
Director Karan was also quoted by Hindustan Times saying that working with Salman would always be an honour, pleasure and privilege for him. The 43-year-old director has only worked once with the star in 1998, but said he would love to team up with Salman again.
