Indian Mentality Embarrasses Me, Not My Sexuality: Karan Johar

10-01-2017

Filmmaker Karan Johar is never going to utter the three words that people wants to hear him say about his sexuality. Soon his upcomming biography titled Unsuitable Boy, he does make it a point to say that his sexuality is his business, and his alone.In a published excerpt from the much-awaited book, he opens up about all the hate and judgement he’s got for his sexual orientation, but falls short of declaring it, simply because he could be jailed for doing so in India. He Says "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. Karan Johar Unsuitable Boy seems to be bold, sensitive and unapologetic about Karan’s life, dilemmas, battles and success, set against the background of conjecture and his sexuality. He further says "While growing up, I was combating a hundred issues in my head. The thought of sex made me awkward; it almost rattled me. I thought, am I asexual? Why am I not feeling this? Why am I not doing anything? There was a lot of turbulence in my head. For me to address it, talk about it, discuss it, was a big no-no. I brushed it under the carpet all through the making of Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge and Kuch Kuch Hota Hai. At that time, I was also very large and was grappling with my weight issues. I felt physically undesirable. Post Kuch Kuch Hota Hai, I had actually started working a little on my looks. I had lost some weight and had groomed myself a bit. Finally, I had developed a little spring in my step, a little confidence. That’s when my first encounter happened, after the release of Kuch Kuch Hota Hai, out of the country"
