On the show Twinkle Khanna told Karan Johar, “You are the Sima aunty of the movie business. You keep doing this matchmaking and your father did the same thing. When I was speaking to Waheeda Rahman, she mentioned that your father fixed up her marriage, it’s some genetic predisposition to get people together.”
In his response, Karan Johar told Mrs Funnybones, “I take on the responsibility like I have to do it. It just makes me very happy to do it. It’s like one of the agendas in my life. Vidya (Balan) called me the other day. It was her 12th anniversary, and I had introduced her to Siddharth Roy Kapoor. I was so touched by this call, more than any feedback for a film.”
When asked to name a few recent matches Karan Johar said further, “I don’t think they would like me to go public with that information. Contrary to public opinion, there’s a lot that I keep secret to myself.”
