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.

  • He will pull srk and every other known person on this planet to sell his book.

    The best thing that happened with Srk is more and more disassociation with this guy. He thinks he made Srk. I wonder if he mentioned in his crapography about he being the reason for srk’s achievement.

  • So, according to KJo, srk was having affair with PC to prove the world that he is not gay……what a load of bull$hit is this Kjo talking…….may be then this could have happened with PC and Srk.

    Srk to PC – our relationship ended

    PC to Srk – but nothing started

    Srk to PC – well, my good friend KJo planted it all over the news that there was something, you see….and he made sure that it proved to the world that I am not gay. I am so thankful for Kjo.

    I hope Srk kicks this guy on his a$$.

  • By the way, the current trend from Google – It is more interesting for Srk fans since it was completely oppose two-three weeks back-

    Raees – 99 percent
    Ok Jaanu – 53 percent
    Kaabil – 86 percent

    Raees is trending better now in central India and western region……looks like Raees is getting the upperhand as the release date is approaching.

  • I apologize to all Khans’ fans as I have taken too much digs at them but always tasted dust like my favorite Hrithik Duggu – Papa ka beta…

    OK Jaanu is a written Flop… it’ll be of same fate as Befikre… People are bored of messy complex metropolitan love stories… They had too much to bear in ADHM for now… When the original ‘O Kadhal Kanmani’ was released it was one of it’s kind for regional viewers and the fresh storytelling of Mani Ratnam sailed it through becoming a success… Shaad Ali didn’t have an impressive track record either… And Aditya Roya Kapoor’s hiccup-hiccup dialogue delivery is a certain put-off…!

  • Is karan madam trying to cover up the real inside relationship between srk and him by clarifying he is like brother. Rumors were not rumors until there wasnt any little truth. Also U cannot admit in publicly that u and srk are in relation rather u would say that he is like ur brother.even srk had fiven lots of hint in awards show that his hearts beat for u😊 so dont overwhelmed it is what it is😊

  • look whose fanz r commenting on an article related to word ‘Gey’. Chamchas of the same old guy who caught kissing a British actor named John Barrowman in his gey frndz movie My name is gey khan. same film also has a dialogue_ My name is Khan and i’m not a gey (too much used of word Gey) 😆. Bhai iss mamle mai to tum logonko chup hi rehna chahiye!

    @Aamir-emperor : First of all I don’t think u r a ‘Real’ Aamir Fan coz the way u r blabbering nonsense on Bhai in any recent Dangal related articles, it seems u r more like a Buddha Hakla fan. Learn something from u’r mates likes Navin/Rew1/Sky how they respect Bhai… BT let’s forget it.

    I’m laughing on u’r logic here. So according to you, Guys like Rahul Gandhi, Ratan Tata, Atal Ji, Late Mr. Kalam saab, Social worker Anna Hazare or our very own Bollywood star Akshaye khanna all were geys coz they didn’t married.

    Do you have any evidence or any trusted links which describes relationship between them ? Really… means anybody who is Unmarried and spends his time with any male has got extramarital affair with him and he becomes gey. Right ? Waah! Kya logic hai matlab bolna hai to kuch bhi sahi.

    What do you mean by Saying #indicine made Numero uno Crowd puller Ha ? If u don’t have trust on #indicine then simply go and spend you’re time on other Bolly related sites, there are plenty of them.

    BTW the guy whom you admired (maybe, not sure) also ditched his First wife and her 2 childs and now spending his time by getting married with a Female ‘Harry Porter’ version 😂 oh! I forget they got a child too with the help of Surrogacy. No offence to Aamir BT if you will keep bashing Bhai on his personal issues then we too are not Saints to digest u’r bakwaas everytime. So think before speaking anything.

  • What’s wrong if someone is a homosexual. Is it their fault to be like that? Eve if Kjo is one, on the professional front he is a highly successful writer, director, producer as well as an amazing host. He has also given a life to many new comers in the industry. He is a great person. We all love you and respect you Kjo.

  • Shut up karan Johar. Nobody cares about your sexual orientation. People care about what kind of movies you make if you keep making these urban rom-com craps people are gonna hate you. You should focus on producing films like sultan, dangal etc not these hollywood wanna be rom com craps. so shut up and focus on producing better movies . Nobody gives a flying F* about your sexual orientation
