Bollywood actor Saif Ali Khan, who was approached for a special appearance in Karan Johar's directorial venture "Ae Dil Hai Mushkil" couldn't do the film following an injury.
"Karan had approached Saif for the role in 'Ae Dil Hai Mushkil'. However, Saif met with an injury during that time and was advised two months rest by his doctors.
"Karan is like family to Saif and Kareena. Infact it was Saif who told Karan to cast another star for the role, as he wouldn't be able to shoot for the film," sources said.
Gossip mills were abuzz that Kareena and Saif are upset with Johar as the actor was going to do a cameo in "Ae Dil Hai Mushkil" but Karan choose to cast Shah Rukh Khan for the part instead.
According to sources, Kareena has always stated that Karan is like a brother to Saif and her.
"These rumours are insensitive and extremely upsetting to Kareena. There is no truth to what is being reported," a statement issued by Kareena's spokesperson said.
Saif's next release will be Vishal Bhardwaj's "Rangoon".
Presently, the actor is busy prepping for the Hindi version of Hollywood film "Chef".
Kareena who is expecting her first child, will soon begin work on "Veere Di Wedding".
