Karan Johar has never been absolutely vocal about his sexual orientation, yes he has given enough hints that he is indeed homosexual but he never really got upfront on a professional stage. In a recent interview, he was asked if he still intended to "suppress" his sexuality, with people and the law becoming more open.
Karan replied: "At 46, I can't be in a relationship. And I'm not being cynical, I'm being practical. I don't think I can divide my time between a relationship, and my mom and two kids. Not that one has to be sacrificed for the other, but I want to divide my time only between the relationships I have with my work. Finally, I can say that I'm in a relationship with myself. And when you are in one of those, you don't have either the space or the time for anyone else."
The ace filmmaker also pointed out the trolls that he has to face on social media from homophobic people, he said: "I have become like the poster boy of homosexuality in this country," he wrote, adding, "Twitter has the most abuse. I wake up to at least 200 hate posts saying, 'Get out, you're polluting our nation, you're dirtying society' or 'Shove [IPC Section] 377 up your arse.' I get this on a daily basis and I've learned to laugh it off."
Currently, Karan is invested in making of historical drama ‘Takht’.
