I have been there with advices all the time. I have done films, television shows, been into fashion, done almost everything I could. I think radio was just one platform that I had to visit. Me being me giving relationship advice for breakups, messed up relations, one-sided love, lust which is the most important thing in the relationship, I am there for all. The best part is to not pretend but actually be one’s BFF. Calling Karan will be your one-stop advice shop for relationships and matters of the heart,” said the producer.
