"I felt so happy for you but I felt so alone again."
The eighth season of Koffee With Karan got underway and it proved to be an emotional episode for Karan Johar.
Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone were the guests and they surprised everyone by sharing their wedding video.
The video ended up bringing tears to Karan’s eyes.
After wiping away his tears, he shared a hug with the Bollywood power couple.
Karan then confessed that the video reminded him that he is single and sometimes, he feels “lonely”.
He told the couple: “I am not in a relationship, I am kind of single, and it just makes me feel like what I am losing out on.
“You feel like you don’t have a partner of your own to share the nothings of your day with.
“And everyday I wake up and a little part of me feels the vacuum.
“I have my kids and mom, but when I see this and see you, and I know relationships are tough, but that soul connection with a person that you can wake up with and hold their hand and see your day with in tough times.
“I felt so happy for you but I felt so alone again. And I hope this manifests into like, I hope I have a story to tell. I know it’s not easy.”
Giving him words of encouragement, Deepika replied:
“Karan, I want to tell you that you will when the time is right and it will all fall into place.
“And I think we know a lot of people today who just rush into marriage and relationships because of this feeling of like, ‘Oh, everyone seems to be moving on’.
“But the reverse is also true, which is a lot of people are stuck in a relationship.”
“So if you know you have found the right person, only then it is worth it or otherwise you are better on your own.”

The episode also saw Karan Johar ask the couple how difficult it is to maintain “fidelity”, both emotionally and sexually, especially when they are constantly surrounded by “attractive people”.
Deepika said: “Of course it’s work. I think any marriage is work, whether you’re a part of this industry or outside it. Marriage is work, and it’s work every day.
“At the end of the day, he’s had a different life, a different upbringing, and I’ve had a different life and upbringing, and it’s about two very different people coming together.
“It’s not to say that we don’t have our fights, we don’t have our arguments, we don’t have our bad days. We do.
“But the fact that we choose to power through it together, the fact that we choose to argue with each other, the fact that we communicate, and choose to learn from that, and grow from that, and then move on, is what makes marriage beautiful.”
