Karan Johar celebrated his 46th birthday with some ‘me’ time in the New York City, and not with a star-studded bash. Speaking about the same to Pinkvilla, before he took off for NYC prior to his birthday, Karan shared, “No, I just got a few days off and it timed well for my birthday, so I thought it would work the best as I have had a crazy working year where I have worked for almost every day of the last one year. Plus, there's so much happening work wise so I took some time off. New York is one of my favourite cities and I have friends there. So, I am just going to go for some 'me' time and come back to handle all the madness again.” (Also Read: Karan Johar Turns 46, Talks About Finding A Life Partner After Becoming Dad To Twins, Yash And Roohi)

When asked if the fear of not finding a life partner has finally gone, after having two adorable little munchkins by his side, Karan stated, “Yeah yeah. I don't fear it, I don't care about finding a life partner anymore. I already have my life partners- my children and my mom. I am grateful.” Further talking about his journey of life, Karan was quoted as saying, “I am at the interval of my life (where) It has been one solid first half. There have been ups and downs, highs and lows, great successes, some personal failures but the pre-interval has been super strong and dramatic which eventually got the great interval point. Now I am gearing up for my second half and I know that I will climax in the best possible way, pun not intended.” (Also Read: Karan Johar Shares Adorable Pics Of Twins, Golden-Haired Yash And Roohi With Her Tiny Teeth)
