Filmmaker Karan Johar, who just turned 41, is on the verge of adopting a child. And, he has a lot else on his mind, he tells us in a tête-à-tête.
So how did the birthday go?
Honestly, at 41, I didn’t think there was a need to celebrate my birthday. But a close friend of mine (Aarti Shetty, daughter of entrepreneur Manmohan Shetty) planned a surprise party for me where friends from the industry turned up. It was wonderful and very sweet of everyone. I feel blessed with all the warmth bestowed on me.
Now that you’ve turned 41, do you think this is the right time to adopt a child, as you had once said you’d wish to?
Yes, this is definitely on top of my mind at present. Tell me, who doesn’t want to have a family to extend himself herself? My mom and I will bring up the child wonderfully. I will take one baby step at the moment, pun intended!
