Filmmaker Karan Johar turned 52 on Saturday (May 25). He is best known for his directorial films, Ae Dil Hai Mushkil, Rocky Aur Rani Kii Prem Kahaani, Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham, and more. He usually grabs the headlines for his love life.

Earlier in 2018, Karan, in an interview with Firstpost, talked about why he had given up on the idea of getting married. He said, “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."

He further added, "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."

Even in 2016, Karan talked about his love life and admitted that his directorial film Ae Dil Hai Mushkil revolved around his concept of unrequited love.

The film starred Ranbir Kapoor, Anushka Sharma, Aishwarya Rai, and Fawad Khan.
