Karan Johar stirs controversy over his remark on intolerance at Jaipur Literature Festival. Karan says that freedom of expression is biggest joke in India.
Bollywood filmmaker Karan Johar said India is a “tough country” where speaking about personal life can land people behind the bars and he did not want to fight the “governance” by talking of issues like “intolerance”
There is much that has been said and left unsaid when it comes to Karan Johar. The celebrated director and producer arrived at the Jaipur Literature Festival to clear the air in a wonderfully brazen bare-all with Poonam Saxena and Shobhaa De to discuss his life and his upcoming biography An Unsuitable Boy.
Johar began by recalling his awkward childhood in a South Bombay ‘snooty neighbourhood’. He admitted that the tag of ‘pansy’ attached to him as a child bothered him endlessly and that initially, he struggled to come to terms with his effeminacy.
