He added that he turns to Karan, whom he described as his mentor, guru, confidante and a big brother, at the time of need. “We’ve seen each other through our respective highs and lows. Karan is someone I deeply admire and respect. Not only has he been there for me, he’s been there for my family as well. I admire his wit, compassion, and his empathy for this world,” he explained.
Gurung wrote that he loves Karan but only as a friend. He said: “These reasons and many, many more is why I love Karan. But as a friend, as a big brother, as someone who I can always count on. To misconstrue my deep love for Karan as a romantic relationship is immature, unfounded and frankly very damaging in the 21st century – In this time of incredible divisiveness and othering that is happening all over the world.”
According to the latest updates, Prabal is in a live-in relationship since 5 years with Paul. Karan Johar and Prabal are just very good friends.
