"I wish I'd focused on my personal life a little more."
Karan Johar opened up about his personal life, stating that he feels it is too late for him to find a life partner.
The filmmaker said he regrets not giving more time to his personal life and letting it take a backseat to his work.
Karan welcomed twins Yash Johar and Roohi Johar via surrogacy in 2015.
Speaking about the matter, Karan said that he also wished he had taken that decision five years earlier instead.
He believes parents and children cannot fulfil the void of a life partner.
On his regrets, Karan explained: “I wish I’d focused on my personal life a little more. I don’t think I have done that.
“As a parent, I feel very fulfilled today. And thank God I took that step, and I think I took that step five years too late. I wish I had done that even earlier.
“But I feel that in all this relationship building, producer building, studio building, I let myself take a back seat in my personal life.”
Speaking about his biggest regret, Karan said:
“The bigger regret I have is that I didn’t give that part of my life the importance that I think that it deserved at a certain point in time and now, I think it might be too late.
“I think it’s perhaps too late for me to now find a life partner, and go to the mountains for a quiet holiday with or kind of have someone hold my hand at times.
“I think what a life partner does for you – a parent, a child, can never fulfil that aspect.”
“I think that is reserved for your soulmate, your life partner, your relationship, or romance, or whatever it might be… I don’t have that.
“That’s a vacant spot in my life and that’s my deepest regret.”
On the work front, Karan Johar was shooting for the seventh season of Koffee With Karan.
He has also been filming Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahani, which stars Alia Bhatt, Ranveer Singh, Shabana Azmi, Dharmendra, and Jaya Bachchan, among others.
