Karan Johar had to quit ‘Jhalak Dikhla Jaa Reloaded’ midway due to his film assignments and his departure has affected his fellow judge Shahid Kapoor who is not hiding his feelings.

It was a teary-eyed farewell for Karan who has to start shooting for his next directorial venture — ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’ – with Ranbir Kapoor, Anushka Sharma and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan in London.


Shahid displayed his feelings on social media by sharing a picture on the sets of the show, standing beside a larger-than-life portrait of Karan with a particularly miserable expression.

 The caption simply read: Miss you. #jhalakreloaded

Earlier, the ‘Jhalak Dikhla Jaa’ team had given Karan a heartfelt video tribute, sharing his childhood pictures with his late father and director Yash Johar, and featuring tidbits from the crew, contestants and judges talking about his kind, loving nature and beautiful down-to-earth personality. 

The gesture moved the emotional director into tears.
