MUMBAI: Filmmaker Karan Johar says the emotion of love is closest to his heart and he is a die-hard romantic. 

The 44-year-old director, who was addressing a session at the ongoing 18th Jio MAMI Mumbai International Film Festival, said his upcoming directorial venture "Ae Dil Hai Mushkil" is about the feeling of unrequited love, which he understands well.

"I am extremely romantic in my personal space and I carry the baggage of love strongly in my cinema. If you fall in love twice then it's enough and the pain that it (love) gives you and holds your breath is what 'Ae Dil Hai Mushkil' is about. 

"I feel up to this point I have never written and directed a film that was about me. It's my first internal film. There are some situations and circumstances that are fictional but I feel the pain. The pain of love is not like you take a medicine and it goes away. When you know it, you feel it," Karan said. 

"Ae Dil Hai Mushkil," starring Ranbir Kapoor, Anushka Sharma and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, is releasing on Octber 28.
