Karan Johar reveals Akshay Kumar and Twinkle Khanna were the inspiration behind Rocky and Rani


Karan Johar is back with a bang, his last release Rocky Aur Rani Kii Prem Kahaani has amassed over Rs 300 crore at the global box office. The director in his latest interview, is revealing some unknown facts about the film.


The director in his interview with Mid-Day, revealed that he probably would have been subconsciously inspired by Akshay Kumar and Twinkle Khanna’s real life personalities for his on screen characters of Rocky Randhawa and Rani Chatterjee, played by Ranveer Singh and Alia Bhatt.
He mentioned that Akshay and Twinkle have a tremendous friendship in their marriage. He has spent a lot of time with them, having dinners, meals, going out and has even directed them in advertisements and there’s a terrific kind of comfort in their camaraderie.
Karan feels both Akshay and Twinkle find each other hilarious, for different reasons. He also mentioned that he felt it wasn’t impossible for people who come from two different demographics and stratas of society, to actually find love.


He also stated that 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.
Actually this is not the first role Karan wrote a role keeping Twinkle Khanna in mind. He first wrote Tina’s character from Kuch Kuch Hota Hai keeping the actress-writer in mind. He even called the character Tina as it was inspired by her, but she turned it down and the role ultimately went to Rani Mukerji. Karan and Tina have been best friends since school, and go a long way back.
Akshay and Twinkle started dating while working together on the sets of Umesh Mehra’s 1999 action film International Khiladi. They got married in 2001, and went on to have a son, Aarav, and a daughter, Nitara.
