- The so called ‘Poster Boy Director’ is himself tossed up in finding the right partner.
The films under Dharma Productions mostly depict a love story of two or more people which all ends up in a happy situation, but this doesn’t seem to be sounding when the director’s own life comes into action. As stated by self, he is a living irony for the whole world as he is not able to find an idle partner for his life.

- Karan was keen on the ‘K’ numerology.
Karan was very superstitious about the fact that he always wanted his movies to start with the alphabet ‘K’ as he thought that it was lucky for him. All the blockbuster under his tag have the ‘K’ tag intact. Movies like ‘Kuch Kuch Hota Hai, Kabhi Khusi Kabhie Gham, Kabhi Alvida Na Kehna and My Name is Khan.’ Though he gave up this belief post the release of Lage Raho Munna Bhai as he realized the actual truth.
