Speaking about Rocky Aur Rani Kii Prem Kahaani, Karan Johar revealed that he might have subconsciously drawn inspiration for his characters Rocky and Rani from one of his favourite Bollywood couples. In an interview with Mid Day, Karan said that Akshay Kumar and Twinkle Khanna’s love story inspired the reel life relationship between his film’s lead characters. The filmmaker said, “Maybe subconsciously (I got inspired). They have a tremendous friendship in their marriage. I’ve had dinners with them, meals with them, hung out with them. And there’s a terrific kind of comfort in their camaraderie.” Karan further added, “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.”
