Finally, director-turned-talk show host Karan Johar who is infamous for putting people on the spot on his popular chat show ‘Koffee With Karan’ got a taste of his own medicine.
The new talk show host in town, Niranjan Iyengar let KJo spill the beans on his show as the director spoke about his relationship with Shah Rukh Khan, films et al.
Talking about the rumours about a failed friendship with his close friend Shah Rukh Khan, Karan said: “I feel very exhausted about constantly justifying about what I feel for him and what he feels for me. The world has made this relationship go through too much turbulence. If it was left to just him and me, we would always be the force to reckon with. Unfortunately, other forces have come in and tried to dilute the impact of our force. And its made sometimes things a bit awkward and uncomfortable. But, at the end of the day if he calls me today and asks me to drop my life and career for him, I would do it without a beep, without a thought. If he asks me to be there for him unconditionally for one month, one year, ten years, I would do that unconditionally. And I think he would do the same for me.”
KJo also admitted to becoming more easier especially with himself now. “I’ve become a lot more indifferent to things that I was giving too much importance to, some people. I’ve let go. I’ve let them go out of my life. I feel like I’ve cleaned the clutter.”
“I solidly believe that if you lose me in your life, it’s your loss because I’m all about the people I know. I’m all about the relationships I build. So all the people who have forced me to let go of them, I believe it’s their loss.”
Further talking about his popularity, without blinking an eyelid, Karan johar says he feels burdened. “I think initially it was me trying to be Miss Congeniality. I think it’s the only child syndrome.. you want to kind of accumulate a lot of love around you that probably your family doesn’t offer. Over the years that became part of my personality. And finally today I feel exhausted. Like I feel I don’t want to be so nice anymore. I don’t want to pick up the phone on anyone. I don’t want to be there for everyone. But, because I’m Gemini, and you get two for the price of one, constantly tussling two parts of me – one part that wants to stick to exactly who I am and have been, and one part that wants to create a new me and set that as the standard for the next decade.”
