Why Kajol never attended JTHJ premiere? She was NOT invited!

The real reason behind Kajol's no-show at the premiere of 'Jab Tak Hai Jaan' predates the film's release

After much ado about former Yash Chopra heroine Kajol's no-show at the premiere of Jab Tak Hai Jaan, hot comes the gossip that the real reason behind her conspicuous absence rests elsewhere.

The real reason in fact finds its deep roots in the times when hubby Ajay Devgn's Bol Bachchan was in the making. Kajol was extremely upset that Yash Raj Films had demanded Rs 5 lakh from Ajay as a charge to reuse a certain section of their famous Kajra Re song, especially since she had done numerous appearances and cameos in their films free of charge. Apparently, it all started there.


A source adds, `Initially Ajay agreed to pay the amount. However, YRF then hiked the sum to Rs 25 lakh for the 90-second sequence. Ajay was upset and so was Kajol. Ajay later consoled her saying it was all part of the business.`

The ensuing tussle between her home production and Jab tak hai Jaan worsened when Kajol was hard-pressed to take sides. To top it all, YRF apparently did not even extend an invite to the actress to attend the event, which was graced by several former Chopra heroines.


The couple was apparently in a huge dilemma over whether Kajol should agree to grace the gala, given the complicated turn of events.

Another source states, `It was clear that the battle lines were drawn. To Kajol's surprise, YRF did not invite her at all. She was definitely hurt but ultimately she decided to stand by her husband.`

The source finally says, `While Ajay insists that it is a war over who is right and who is wrong, by not inviting Kajol matters have turned worse. He felt that Kajol had nothing to do with it.`


On his part, Ajay Devgn does not mince words on the issue and states, `Yes, Kajol was not seen at the premiere as she was not invited.`
