Karan Johar and Rani Mukherji share a warm equation and their long lasting friendship is known to all since Rani has been a part of most of his films even if she isn't playing the leading girl.
Recently in a Filmfare interview KJo spoke about how incredible Rani is as a mother to Adira. He was quoted saying, "I met Rani and Adi (Aditya Chopra) in Europe and spent some time with them. I kept teasing Rani by calling her Mother India because she’s obsessive about her daughter. We’re all amused about that. Adi and I are always laughing about how hysterical she is, but she’s lovely.”
He further added, "Adira is beautiful. Adi and Rani are special to me and their child is exceptionally special. I get teary eyed when I see Rani and Adi as parents. Adi is my closest friend in the industry. In fact we’re best friends.”
