Karan Johar just released his biography ‘An Unsuitable Boy’ and he came out as CANDID as possible. For his attitude he received a lot of criticism as well as appreciation.
New York Times magazine has appreciated Karan Johar for his bold attitude by stating in his latest edition that:
One recent night in Mumbai I found myself at a small part at Mr Johar’s house. A group of stars had gathered on a balcony, overlooking the liquid darkness of sea and city lights. I had just finished Mr Johar’s book. Its last line is ‘Death does not scare me, life sometimes does.
They further write:
As I watched the producer among his friends, now a star lovingly nurtured, now a hero, aging but handsome, I became acutely aware of his solitude. He is of that generation that came of sexual age maybe five or 10 years before the freedoms of this recent time burst upon us. That meant that Mr Johar, though he has tried actively to find love – even , as he writes in his memoir, resorting to an agency that deals exclusively with the ultra rich and famous – faces the prospect of growing old alone. It’s a theme he returns to again and again in the book, as does his desire to have children. I hope he does.
Mr Johar may not have uttered the three words but his life and work are a portrait in courage. One wants him not merely to be brave but happy, and needless to say, gay.
