Filmmaker Karan Johar says it’s late for him in life to be in a relationship.
“They're too late now. It's too late. At 46, I can't be in a relationship. And I'm not being cynical, I'm being practical. I don't think I can divide my time between a relationship, and my mom and two kids. Not that one has to be sacrificed for the other, but I want to divide my time only between the relationships I have with my work. And finally, I can say that I'm in a relationship with myself. And when you are in one of those, you don't have either the space or the time for anyone else,” he told Firstpost.
In the interview, Karan also talked about several others subjects, including Sidharth Malhotra’s many box office failures and backing a project as experimental as Ayan Mukerji's Brahmastra.
About Sidharth, she said, “Sidharth is immensely soulful in his demeanour. He has the most expressive eyes. Films work and they don't, but his sincerity and conviction have remained the same. I'm really excited for the great work he's doing now, like Jabariya Jodi and the hard-core commercial masala entertainer Marjaavaan, which also has Tara (Sutaria) and Riteish (Deshmukh).”
On investing in a three-part franchise like Brahmastra, he said, “Ayan is a visionary. He has been studying this kind of cinema as an academic exercise for the past 20 years. When he came to me with the idea, he told me that it needs to be told in three parts. And I think we're now ready to have our cinema play out in that way.”
“More than his vision and passion, I was amazed by the hard work he has put into the project for the past four years. Four years literally, because he started right after Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani released. His entire team, including Ranbir (Kapoor), Alia (Bhatt) and Mr (Amitabh) Bachchan, the direction crew, the production department and the technicians, have put in tremendous amount of work that I just feel awestruck every time I see them function. The money involved in such a case is secondary. What's primary is the passion. Brahmastra is a product of great passion,” he added.
