Everyone knows my sexual orientation: Karan Johar

Filmmaker Karan Johar has indirectly hinted about his sexual orientation and how coming out in the open could land him in jail in a country that has criminalised homosexuality.

In his biography, titled ‘An Unsuitable Boy’, which has been jointly penned by Johar and Poonam Saxena, Karan has spoken about his life in detail.

“Everybody knows what my sexual orientation is. I don’t need to scream it out. If I need to spell it out, I won’t only because I live in a country where I could possibly be jailed for saying this. Which is why I Karan Johar will not say the three words that possibly everybody knows about me” he says.

Johar who has produced movies like ‘Dostana’, also spoke of rumours that surround him in the industry and the rumours of linking him up with Shah Rukh – that affected him on a personal level.

“For heaven’s sake, for years there were rumours about Shah Rukh and me. And I was traumatised by it. I was on a show on a Hindi channel, and I was asked about Shah Rukh.’Yeh anoka rishta hai aap ka,’ the interviewer said. He worded it in such a way that I got really angry. I said, ‘If I asked you if you are sleeping with your brother, how will you feel?’ So he said, `What do you mean? How can you ask me this question?’ I said, ‘How could you ask me this question?”

“For me, no matter what ups and downs Shah Rukh and I have been through, he is a father figure, an older brother to me. For me to look at him in that way or be subjected to those rumours was just ridiculous. But it didn’t bother him. He said, ‘People talk nonsense, and if a man does not have an extramarital affair, he is supposed to be gay” he added.

  • KJo you are successful enough to be bold, You are an unlikely hero, but why do you always keep hinting about your sexual orientation yourself… you need not to prove anything man !.. You works speak for you and people should be interested in your onscreen persona be it your films or Coffee show… But these filthy media retards are always interested what’s going back stage and these are the people who instead of propagating positivism spread negativity just for the sake of creating sensationalism, which is however disgusting but sells…

  • People criticize him for stereotypical gay portrayal in Dostan, but at least he got the conversation started. He later also showed a goofd and realistic gay person in Kapoor and Sons, hats off to that.

  • It needs lots of courage to accept that He or she is Gay or Lesbian bcz people criticize you
    Even Gays have brothers and friends and Lesbians also have Sisters and friends
    And Srk and Karan johar are very good friends and like brothers that’s all.
