Karan Johar has turned into a relationship adviser for Bollywood actor Ayushmann Khurrana. The actor made a call to the director as part of the second season of ISHQ 104.8 FM’s popular show ‘Calling Karan’, which is hosted by the filmmaker.

Worried about how women approach him for an extramarital affair, Ayushmann asked Karan, “How should I say no to women who call me for extramarital affairs? Politely turning them down that you know I am a married man…How should I do this?”

Karan had a quick solution to Ayushmann’s problem. “For the girls in the world to know that there are men like you too that actually want to give an alarm sound to those who are hitting on you, do so by saying that ‘Listen I am married’. Well, it’s very simple, it’s the oldest trick in the world, Ayushmann,” he told the actor.

“Just laugh at something she says. Like ‘Oh God, you are so funny! My wife would love you’. Or something similar, like ‘Oh! You look so pretty, where did you get it? I want to gift something like this to my wife’. There are a hundred ways of telling her that you have a wife,” Karan added.

On the work front, Karan Johar is gearing up to direct his first historic film, Takht, starring Ranveer Singh, Kareena Kapoor Khan, Anil Kapoor, Alia Bhatt, Vicky Kaushal, Janhvi Kapoor and Bhumi Pednekar. The film is slated to release in 2019.
