Having had a successful career as a filmmaker with his production house Dharma, Karan Johar has proven to be a brilliant director, filmmaker and producer with films like Kuch Kuch Hota Hai, Kal Ho Na Ho and few more. On the other side, Karan working as a producer for many bigger films has left no room to complain about his film production abilities. Currently producing films like OK Jaanu, Badrinath Ki Dulhaniya, Karan is waiting for these films to hit the screens. Another add on to the list is of Koffee With Karan which is Bollywood’s favourite chat show where the host Karan invites celebrities for a chat on the couch.
Well! When there is such brightness to his professional career, Karan seems to have a darker phase of his life when it comes to his love and sexual life. Coming up with his biography, The Unsuitable Boy, Karan Johar has given subtle hints about his sexual orientation and personal life. Although Karan Johar has never been very vocal about his sexuality, a question has always popped up amongst people whether he is straight or not. His sexuality is always the talk of the town and on several occasions has he dropped hints and comments. Well! After so many years, the answers to your questions are already here. See how!
In a section of the book, he revealed as to why hasn’t he been very vocal about his sexuality although there is still no declaration. You judge yourself.
See what Karan Johar has to say about his sexuality.
He said that everybody knows about his sexual orientation and he doesn’t need to scream about it and even if he had to, he wouldn’t scream out loud because of the country he is living in where he would possibly be jailed for saying this. He said that he has given hints on platforms like AIB Roast where half of the people had supported him whereas half took offence. He said that he did what he did and did openly in front of his mother in the front row.
When people questioned his morality, he said that his mother is cool with his behaviour and he insisted her to not attend. But the mother didn’t listen and came. He also said that he asked his mum to not be embarrassed over his jokes.
Karan Johar, very boldly said that his sexuality has always been laughed at and that made him disheartened but he doesn’t care about it. Although he has been advised to be an icon with his sexual opinions, he said he wants to live his life and doesn’t care what people think of him and his sexuality.
Well! In a country where there is criticism, it’s difficult to open about such sensitive issues. We applaud Karan Johar for that and will always appreciate his great work.
