No Raksha Bandhan allowed between Karan & Kareena’s children; here’s why

Kareena Kapoor Khan and Saif Ali Khan’s son Taimur Ali Khan and Karan Johar’s twins Yash and Roohi are B-Town’s youngest BFFs.

The trio is often seen enjoying play-dates together and seem to quite like each other’s company.

Since Taimur is a few months older to Roohi, their nannies often ask her to address Taimur as ‘bhaiya’, which an ordinary man wouldn’t find a problem in but apparently Karan strictly opposes it. 

While talking about how society forces relationships on children on his radio show, ‘Calling Karan‘, the filmmaker shared that he is against kids being encouraged to address their peers as ‘Didi’ or ‘Bhaiya’ as they might not necessarily want to be siblings when they grow up. 

He said, “I am like, ‘Kyun?’ 20 saal ke baad maybe Taimur aur Roohi saath rehna chahte hai. Kuch bhi ho sakta hai unka apna. Hum abhi se hi kyun daraar daal rahe hai uss raaste mein? (I am like, ‘why?’ Perhaps 20 years later, Roohi and Taimur would like to be together. They can have anykind of relationship. Why do we have to burn that road so early?)”

Interestingly, Karan had admitted in a 2015 interview that if he were a man, he would have wanted Kareena to be his wife. 

“I always feel if I were a man who would be interested, she would be the wife I wanted, or if I had a sibling, she would be the sister I never had, or if I was interested in dating women, she would probably be the woman I would want to date. Of course, she has her limitations and so do I,” he had told Harper’s Bazaar India.
