She also taught me the art of abandon! She made me the man I am, a man who is honoured to be raised by a woman of substance! Roohi my darling I hope I raise you to be just like your grandmother.”
In an interview with Pinkvilla, Karan had shared that he is living the best phase of his life. He had stated, “I am in a very content phase of life. Actually no, content would be a wrong word. It would mean I am satisfied or when you get too comfortable. But I believe I am in a very exciting phase. I am very energized. I am also in a deeply emotional zone in my life and I mean it with the birth of my children who've really come like a sunshine. Just waking after them and watching them sleep at night are the two highlights of my day. They have changed the whole aura around me. Whether it's the company or the house, we have renewed energies now because of the babies.” (Also Read: Kareena Kapoor Quizzes Sara Ali Khan If She Has Had A One-Night Stand And About Modern Relationships)
