Bollywood's 'Shahenshah' Amitabh Bachchan and director Karan Johar are known for their camaraderie and close bond. The two are all set to collaborate for the upcoming trilogy - 'Brahmastra'.

The movie which also stars Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt will be directed by Ayaan Mukherjee.

Karan Johar who is known to speak his heart out, recently made a comment on a television show for a news channel. Johar and Ramesh Sippy had an interactive session on the show.

The ‘My Name Is Khan’ director said that earlier he used to think that everyone in the Hindi film industry was a Punjabi as his dad Yash Johar used to speak to everyone in Punjabi. He added that his father spoke in Punjabi to directors, exhibitors, film distributors.

KJo told Sippy that it was the norm back then in B-town and even Big B, who was not a Punjabi, spoke the language fluently. This is where the popular film-maker went wrong.

Senior Bachchan took to Twitter to rectify his mistake and revealed that he is half Sikh. The ‘Deewar’ actor tweeted that he speaks Punjabi as his mother was a half Sikh.

Soon after seeing the tweet, the ‘Kuch Kuch Hota Hai’ director issued sincere apologises to the veteran actor.

Amitabh and Johar have given hit films like ‘Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham’ and ‘Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna’. Fans are eagerly waiting to see how Brahmastra turns out to be.
