KARAN JOHAR MAKES A BOLD STATEMENT ON RELATIONSHIPS

Karan Johar has a packed schedule this year as he has a series of films in his kitty. Recently this director-producer made a bold statement about his daughter Roohi. During his radio show, Karan has said that he wouldn’t mind if Saif Ali Khan and Kareena Kapoor’s son, Taimur, and his daughter, Roohi, want to be together 20 years from now. Karan said that he finds it problematic that our society encourages children to call each other ‘bhaiya’ (brother) and ‘didi’ (sister) when we shouldn’t be restricting their relationships. “Yehi problem hai humare desh mein. Jab ladka ladki ek saath hote hai toh immediately bolte hai ‘bhaiyya bolo’, ‘didi bolo’... Arre, bilkul nahi yaar, (This is the problem with our country. When we see a boy and a girl together, we immediately tell them to call each other ‘brother’ and ‘sister’. This should never happen),”.

Karan said that his nannies tell Roohi to call Taimur ‘bhaiya’ whenever he comes over for a play date, and he is completely against it. “I am like, ‘Kyun?’ 20 saal ke baad maybe Taimur aur Roohi saath rehna chahte hai, Kuch bhi ho sakta hai. Hum abhi se hi kyun daraar daal rahe hai uss raaste mein? (Why? 20 years from now they may want to be together. Why are we creating a wall between them already?)”
Taimur and Roohi (and her twin brother Yash) are paparazzi favorites, with their pictures being shared far and wide on an almost daily basis. They’ll probably have many more play dates in the future when Karan directs Kareena in his upcoming film, Takht. The period film also stars Ranveer Singh, Janhvi Kapoor, Vicky Kaushal, Alia Bhatt, Bhumi Pednekar and Anil Kapoor.
