"You know what my kids' present to me, they are five and half and they know how obsessed I am with 'Dafli Wale' as it goes back to my childhood. That song is a big part of my childhood. I am in love and obsessed with this song...So, when my children wanted to give me a present...I don't know who suggested it to them but they actually rehearsed on the steps of 'Dafli Wale' and they made me sit down and I had tears coming down my eyes,” he told Film Companion.
On the professional front, Karan is gearing up for his directorial Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahani which stars Alia Bhatt and Ranveer Singh in the lead roles. The film will mark his return to the director’s chair after six long years.
