- Sara Ali Khan addressed her breakup with Kartik Aaryan on Koffee With Karan 8
- She said it isn`t always easy to move on from a relationship
- Sara and Kartik broke up in 2020 after dating briefly
The third episode of Koffee With Karan 8 was a crackling one! Sara Ali Khan and Ananya Panday were at their candid best as they spoke about love, relationships, friendship, career, and perceptions with host Karan Johar. Shedding facade, the actresses, particularly Sara, opened up about their life experiences. The episode started with Karan highlighting the fact that Sara and Ananya once dated the same guy-Kartik Aaryan.
During the conversation regarding relationships and breakup, Sara opened up about her split with Kartik in 2020. The actress put across her thoughts on the same and said, "I don't want to say that ya, it's all easy because then it comes across as a little more frivolous than it is. It isn't always easy. When you are involved with anybody, whether it's friends, professionally, or romantically, especially if I am, I get involved and invested. It is not like, ‘Oh yeah, it doesn’t really matter, whatever its today, whatever it's tomorrow'. It's not like that. It does affect you. But ultimately you have to rise beyond that."
She further added, "Something I have realized without sounding semi-negative, is that there are no permanent predicaments in this business. In my personal experience, there is no point making permanent best friendships, pinky promises, saying I'll never talk to you again. All these nevers and always nahi hota (doesn't happen)."
Karan plugged in and recalled his tiff with Kareena Kapoor Khan and Kajol. The filmmaker revealed he wasn't on talking terms with Kareena after they had a fallout in 2003 over Kal Ho Naa Ho. He shared, "We didn’t speak for a year-and-a-half. It was only when my father (the late Yash Johar) was diagnosed with cancer that she called me. She was silent, I was silent. She was like, ‘I don’t know what to say.’ I told her, ‘Don’t say anything, I know you are there.’ When he passed away, she was in Bangkok, and the minute she landed from her shoot, she came home. We spent all night chatting. We went back to where we were."
Talking about Kajol, he said, "We hadn’t spoken in two years. When Yash and Roohi were born, I just sent her their images. I said, ‘You don’t need to reply, but these are what my children look like.’ She messaged back, saying, ‘I am full of love right now.’ A month later, she said, ‘It’s my birthday, you don’t have to come.’ But I went. We hugged, we cried, and it was done."
Sara had expressed her liking for Kartik on her Koffee With Karan debut appearance which was with her father, Saif Ali Khan. She worked with him on Love Aaj Kal and they briefly dated each other before parting ways a while prior to the film's theatrical release in 2020.
