On his new Instagram account, SRK posted this:
KJo, hope the promised Koffee is decocting.
This was their exchange on Twitter:
@karanjohar how is your shoit going. Will come on the sets on Saturday...gimme some dark coffee- Shah Rukh Khan (@iamsrk) September 23, 2015
@iamsrk....Bhai!!!! Anytime!!!! Come on Friday night na...we have a day off on Saturday! Will give you the best Koffee!!!- Karan Johar (@karanjohar) September 24, 2015
It hasn't been Mumbai-London direct. To get that cup of Koffee, SRK has had to first take a flight out of Hyderabad, where he's been filming Dilwale.
SRK and KJo go back a long way, their off-screen friendship mirrored in a very successful professional partnership that created films like Kuch Kuch Hota Hai and Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham. Relations are believed to have turned frosty after 2010's My Name Is Khan, the last film KJo directed SRK in, and the friendship was only publicly mended a short while ago when both parties announced they would be collaborating on another film. SRK will star in director Gauri Shinde's second film, as well as jointly produce it with Dharma boss KJo.
Meanwhile, if that cup of Koffee in London turns out as good as promised, might we be seeing SRK back on KJo's chat show Koffee With Karan, the previous season of which he skipped?
