Karan Johar recently lambasted upon trollers on Twitter! The troll was questioning his sexuality and the maker offered Karan to sleep with him if he launches him in his film.
A faceless troll named Indian Sherlock tweeted:
@karanjohar Are you a gay? I’m ready to lay if you launch me.
Karan lashed out of anger and replied,
Listen Sherlock!!! First solve the mystery of your existence??? The prize will be to LAUNCH a missile up your arse!!!
Check out the tweet below:
Recently an excerpt from his biography, An Unsuitable Boy was released wherein he talked about his Sexual Orientation-
Everybody knows what my sexual orientation is. I don’t need to scream it out. And 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 in any case. I’ve given hints. I’ve stood on a platform like AIB Roast, and I had half of the people supporting me and the other half dissing me for doing this. But at the end of the day, I did what I did, and I did it with my mother in the front row, and screw you if you have a problem with that.
After the excerpt went viral, Karan Johar is continuously receiving criticism from the LGBT community. In reactions to this excerpt, famous LGBT activist, Pallav Patankar told a leading tabloid,
If an uneducated person in a remote Indian village comes and tells me that they are scared of coming out, I’d take it, but this coming from somebody with a stature as big as Karan’s, I feel let down. He should be coming out as an empowered and powerful individual and actually make a difference for those helpless people living in villages. People who were earlier considering coming out will now sit and think twice, worried that an FIR might be involved – but this is baseless. You won’t be arrested for coming out.
