Karan said that this is possible to a great extent. Because he constantly hangs out with Akshay and Twinkle.

Karan Johar has recently given an interview. Here he talked about Shahrukh Khan to Akshay Kumar and Ranbir Kapoor. Karan knows the Hindi film industry inside out. His film Rocky Aur Rani Kii Prem Kahaani has just been released. Karan said that the love story in his film is inspired by the relationship between Akshay and Twinkle Khanna.
In an interview with Mid-Day, Karan Johar was asked whether the love story of Alia and Ranveer is very similar to that of Akshay-Twinkle. Did Karan get that idea for the film from there? On this Karan said-
“Maybe subconsciously I was inspired there. Because the friendship in their marriage is very strong. I have dinner with him. We have eaten together many times. Have hung out with them. And during that time I came to know that there is an amazing kind of comfort between them. There is friendship. Both find each other funny for different reasons. I realized that it is not impossible for people coming from two different categories of society to fall in love with each other. It is just like when we are looking for a relationship, we want to keep ourselves where both the people are comfortable. But tomorrow you may fall in love somewhere else, with someone else.”
In ‘Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahani’, Ranveer Singh has played the role of Rocky Randhawa, a boy from a Punjabi family living in Delhi. In which there is a lot of playfulness. There is arrogance. Whereas the character of Rani played by Alia comes from a Bengali family. Where everything is done with great style. Big prim-trim type family. Despite this, Rocky and Rani fall in love with each other. Many issues were discussed in this film, which is not usually seen much in Hindi cinema. Issues ranging from social status to the burden of speaking English and cancel culture form the plot of this film.
Perhaps that is why Karan felt that his story could be inspired by the relationship between Akshay Kumar and Twinkle Khanna. Because Akshay was a boy coming from a Punjabi family. Twinkle was the daughter of a Bombay superstar. There was a huge difference in the social status of both. Both were brought up differently. Despite this they fell in love with each other. And remain so till today.
