Recently, Kareena came out in support of Amrita after the latter faced trolling from several social media users for her.

Kajol and Karan`s friendship goes back to the time when they were simply film industry kids. However, their friendship soured in 2016 during the release of Ae Dil Hai Mushkil, starring Ranbir Kapoor and Anushka Sharma and Ajay Devgn`s Shivaay. Both the films clashed at the box office. But, Kajol and Karan could not stay angry for long with each other. They reunited and rekindled their friendship.
