Sharing an interesting story about the time when Kajol ignored Ratnam, KJo revealed that the renowned filmmaker had called the actress which she thought was a prank.

Karan Johar said on Koffee With Karan 8, “I still remember the day I narrated the film to Shah Rukh Khan and you. We were at Shah Rukh Khan’s old house at Amrit Apartments. We were sitting in his room, which is right next to the terrace. You were crying, Shah Rukh Khan was looking at you thinking you lost the plot. I was crying while narrating the film, you were crying while hearing, and (SRK) was just thinking that both of us were mad.”

“And at that point of time, I remember you got a call, in the midst of this from Mani Ratnam to whom you said ‘Who?’ He said I am Mani Ratnam speaking and you were like ‘Yeah, and I am Tom Cruise’ and put the phone down. Mani Ratnam had called her for Dil Se. She didn’t believe it was Mani Ratnam and she thought someone was playing a prank.”

Dil Se stars Manisha Koirala, Preity Zinta and Shah Rukh Khan in the lead roles and is helmed by Mani Ratnam. It has turned out to be a box office hit.
