Karan has always been quite vocal about the kind of bond he shares with her mother. In his autobiography An Unsuitable Boy, he explained that while growing up it was his mother and her sisters who had the maximum impact on his life. He said that he learnt the act of kindness, the attitude of never giving up and the importance of emotions in one’s life from her. Recently, in an interview, Karan opened up on how Hiroo has been playing the role of a mother not to him but also to his kids as well. We wish her a very happy birthday!
