Bollywood superstar Salman Khan, who is known to be very Dabangg in real life, hinted at a reality show that it was because of director Karan Johar's close proximity to Shah Rukh Khan that the two could never work again.

Salman Khan had done a guest appearance for Karan Johar's directorial debut Kuch Kuch Hota Hai featuring Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol in the lead.

Salman Khan, who came to promote his upcoming reality show Bigg Boss 7 on Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa, was asked to make a confession by hosts Manish Paul and Kapil Sharma.

Salman Khan was all praises for director and friend Karan Johar even as he added that earlier Karan Johar 'avoided' making films with him due to 'someone's influence'.

However, Karan Johar is now keen to work with Salman Khan. But the actor said he is now busy with his new projects - Sohail Khan's Mental, Sajid Nadiawala's Kick and then Sooraj Barjatia's untitled film.

When pushed by Manish Paul to reveal who influenced the director, Karan slyly avoided the topic saying, "Moving on...', leaving little to imagination.
