Karan Johar and Kareena Kapoor Khan have always encouraged a close friendship between their kids Yash, Roohi and Taimur, but the parents do not want to define their relationships for them.
On an episode of his radio show ‘Calling Karan’, Johar revealed that he disliked the idea of Roohi calling Taimur ‘bhaiyya’ (brother) by default and would prefer if the children established their relationship by themselves as they grow up. “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)”, he expressed, “20 saal ke baad maybe Taimur aur Roohi saath rehna chahte hai. Kuch bhi ho sakta hai unka apna. Hum abhi se hi kyun daraar daal rahe hai uss raaste mein? (20 years from now they may want to be together. Why are we creating a wall between them already?)”, Hindustan Times reported.
Johar and Kapoor themselves have been close long-time friends and are planning to work together again in ‘Takht’, co-starring Alia Bhatt, Ranveer Singh, Anil Kapoor and many others.
