Filmmaker Karan Johar attended an event lately and disclosed numerous facets of his personality. In a very frank chat, Karan spoke about his sexuality, trolls and his movies.
When questioned about his sexuality, Karan revealed, “I have never expressed my sexual orientation in those many words. I have insinuated a lot and have said what I wanted to say in my book.”
“I will never say that I am embarrassed or ashamed to say it. I am very proud of who I am and who I will always be. Whatever I have written in the book is the truth and I stand by every word of I,” he further added.
Karan also revealed, “There were two kinds of criticism. First, I was asked why I didn’t make it clear what I wanted to say. And my reply to that is, ‘it’s my right’. Another criticism I faced was that people asked me why I am like this. There are so many people out there who don’t understand the concept of personal orientation. Whatever I am, I’m proud of myself… The orientation I have, is who I am.”
Speaking about trolls, Karan told, “Every morning I get up, I face a lot of trolling on Twitter, Instagram and on other platforms. If I post a picture with a pout then people make filthy comments.”
Karan also said that he doesn’t get enough credit for his directorial ventures, he told. “The magic of big screen is different. People have often said that I don’t make real films. I say to them that I don’t know how to make real films. I know how to sell big dreams of big screen. That’s what I know and understand.”
