When Kajol snubbed Mani Ratnam

Johar said, “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 I remember you getting a call in the middle of this from Mani Ratnam, to whom you said, ‘Who?'” He said, “I’m Mani Ratnam speaking,” and you answered, “Yeah, and I’m Tom Cruise,” and you hung up the phone. Mani Ratnam had contacted her about Dil Se. “She didn’t believe it was Mani Ratnam and thought it was a prank,” Johar explained.
