Karan is currently elated with the response to his home production Kapoor and Sons.

Mr Kapoor, who plays a 90-year-old grandfather in the film, said he constantly had fights with director Shakun Batra.
"I worked on the film for 22 days and there was not a single day when I didn't fight with him on the set. You can ask the entire star cast, we used to fight every day. And not on some creative issue but only execution," he said. (Also Read: Sidharth Malhotra's Action Film 'Not Related' to Hrithik's Bang Bang!)
To which, Rajat jokingly said, "No it wasn't a fight. Fight is two way. Here it was only from one side (pointing to Kapoor)."
Pakistani actor Fawad, whose character Rahul Kapoor in the film is gay, said initially he was a bit nervous to take on the role as he was not sure how the audience would react to it.
"Honestly, the film has taught me a lot. I am not saying I was an intolerant man before, but while doing it, initially I was a little nervous. What the reactions will be, how will people think (about the role) but I had such a wonderful team that I invested my faith on," he said.
