Karan Johar takes ‘full credit’ for Vicky-Katrina, Ranbir-Alia Romance: ‘I became Sima Taparia’

Karan Johar doesn’t hesitate to take credits for Vicky Kaushal and Katrina Kaif, and the love stories of Alia Bhatt and Ranbir Kapoor. The filmmaker, in a recent interview, joked that it was because of Koffee With Karan that they got together. Those who have followed the popular chat show will recall Alia first confessing her crush on Ranbir on the show while Katrina let Vicky pass out when she confessed she would look good with him.

Today, the two couples are married and Alia and Ranbir are expecting their first baby together. Karan was talking about his favorite jodi when he brought up the names of the two couples. He got a head start and compared himself to popular matchmaker Sima Taparia.

“I love the Vicky-Katrina romance. I love that it came out of nowhere and it was beautiful and it started on this couch. I love this novel. I also love the Ranbir-Alia romance because it also started from the couch. Taking all the credit, I became Sima Taparia,” Karan told Pinkvilla in a recent interview.

Vicky and Katrina’s relationship was kept under wraps for a long time, but fans started speculating that they might be together after they started noticing the actors visiting each other. Rumors grew wilder as their wedding date approached last year until just days before their wedding in December 2021, where they confirmed they were together and got married.

On the other hand, Ranbir and Alia started dating when they were filming for Brahmastra. The couple dated for five years before getting married earlier this year. Last month, Alia announced that she was pregnant.

Meanwhile, Karan returns with Koffee With Karan 7 on Thursday. The season kicks off with Alia Bhatt and Ranveer Singh taking to the couch and spilling the beans on many topics.
