Rumors have been doing the rounds that Saif Ali Khan and Kareena Kapoor Khan had a fallout with director Karan Johar because Shah Rukh Khan replaced Saif in AE DIL HAI MUSHKIL. "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," sources said. "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 added. 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 which also stars Kangana Ranaut and Shahid Kapoor.
