In a candid interview with PTI, Karan Johar delved deeper into the influence of Shah Rukh Khan and Aditya Chopra on his career trajectory. Describing them as the "two pillars" who played a pivotal role in shaping his journey in cinema, he said, “It was also part of my destiny to have met Aditya Chopra and Shah Rukh Khan. Two pillars, two reasons why I sit here today. They acknowledged something about me that I didn’t see in myself. I will always be grateful to them for that. The rest was a lot of just passion… I may have been as sincere as I was. But what happens when you don’t have people who are in powerful positions like that? You can make it entirely on your own still because your belief system can be strong enough to combat all odds.”

Karan Johar's association with Aditya Chopra and Shah Rukh Khan dates to his early days in the industry, where he contributed to the success of Chopra's iconic film Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge and later directed Khan in his debut film Kuch Kuch Hota Hai. The enduring bond forged through collaboration and mentorship underscores the profound impact of fostering talent within the film fraternity. Johar's heartfelt tribute stands as a testament to the enduring influence of mentorship and camaraderie in shaping the landscape of Indian cinema.
