Karan Johar Opens Up About His Relationship Status And 'Sad Ek Tarfa Pyaar'

Bollywood director Karan Johar is well-known for creating films that often bring tears to the eyes of hopeless romantics. One of his notable works, the 2016 romantic drama "Ae Dil Hai Mushkil," received a tremendous response from the audience as it delved into the theme of unrequited love. During a recent interview, Karan Johar reflected on the personal heartbreak that served as the inspiration behind this film, starring Ranbir Kapoor and Anushka Sharma.

Karan Johar talks about relationships

“I haven’t been in very many relationships. When I came into my own, it was in my mid-30s when I realised that I could do what I wanted to do in the zone of love, it was difficult. It was not easy to find the right partner, and be in a relationship that was equal. I have had a bout of one-sided love, which I made Ae Dil Hai Mushkil from."

"It was my sad ek tarfa pyaar, which lasted many years, but taught me the power of love itself. Which is there in the line that Shah Rukh says, ‘To love someone, you don’t need that person’. I believe that very strongly; love became my weapon. It empowered me, even though it broke my heart,” KJo told designer Prabal Guraung.

Karan Johar is now single

Karan Johar is currently unattached, having gone through a breakup. He described the experience as not particularly traumatic but certainly enlightening, as it has made him cautious about entering into new relationships.

Karan values the unwavering love and support he receives from his children, Yash and Roohi, as well as his mother, Hiroo. Despite this, he still yearns for a romantic connection. He has expressed his hope and prayers to the universe, wishing for the opportunity to discover a lasting and meaningful relationship in his life.
