The ‘My Name Is Khan’ director further spoke about the criticism he received for KWK7 about discussing sex life and mentioning Alia’s name. He asserted, “Of course, there was so much feedback coming in there like ‘Why is Karan talking so much about Alia?’ ‘Why does he talk so much about people's sex lives?’ And I'm like, actually, I don't think of these things. Maybe I'm curious about people's sex lives so I asked about them. Maybe I am very proud of Alia, and it comes out in every conversation of mine. So we have to police myself when I get that feedback. I read it.”
The head honcho of Dharma said that he is amused to see how people have all time to analyze a talk show and write columns about it. He stated, “But what amuses me is that they're wrong long columns people write and I'm like, ‘It's just a talk show, which is not even a cerebral talk show.’ It's a frivolous, fun talk show. But people have really analyzed it in long columns and I'm almost amused that they have all the time in the world to analyze the show. I wouldn't give it that much time. I don't know why they are.”
On the work front, the 50-year-old filmmaker has come back to directing after a long time for his upcoming film Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahani. The stellar cast includes Ranveer Singh, Alia Bhatt, Dharmendra, Jaya Bachchan and Shabana Azmi. The film is slated to release next year.
