Director Karan Johar has revealed that the lead characters in his recent directorial, Rocky Aur Rani Kii Prem Kahaani, may have been subconsciously inspired by a real-life power couple in Akshay Kumar and Twinkle Khanna.
In an interview with a leading news portal, Karan Johar said, “Maybe subconsciously. They have a tremendous friendship in their marriage. I’ve had dinners with them, meals with them, and hung out with them. And there’s a terrific kind of comfort in their camaraderie. He finds her hilarious, she finds him hilarious, for different reasons. So I felt it wasn’t impossible for people who come from two different demographics of society, two stratas, to actually find love. It’s like we put ourselves in boxes. Like when we’re finding a relationship, we put ourselves in places where we’re comfortable. But tomorrow, you can fall in love with someone anywhere.”
Twinkle Khanna and Akshay Kumar met in the sets of Umesh Mehra’s action film International Khiladi. They tied the knot in 2001 and later had two children, a son named Aarav and a daughter named Nitara.
Meanwhile, on the work front, Akshay Kumar will next be seen in Mission Raniganj: The Great Bharat Rescue, Bade Miyan Chote Miyan, Welcome To The Jungle and Hera Pheri 3.
