'Will Never Have Affair With B-town Stars'

'Will Never Have Affair With B-town Stars'

At India Today Conclave Mumbai 2019, ace filmmaker Karan Johar stated that he will never dare to date someone from the Bollywood industry. Though there are many beautiful love stories emerging from B-town, this 47-year-old director doesn't want to have an affair with any Bollywood star.

The question "Whom would you want to have a steamy affair within Bollywood?" was asked to which Karan replied, "Don't want to date in the industry. All of them are two of them." Earlier, Karan also stated many times that he went through a love failure and was never succeeded in any relationship. Currently, Karan is embracing fatherhood with his adorable twins Yash and Roohi via surrogacy. He also spoke about his kids saying that "When I hold them and they say 'Dadda, don't go,' I melt. It's a love story that doesn't compare to anything else in my life."

Apart from that, the always on-heat topic about his sexuality was explicitly answered by Karan and in fact, he opened up about his sexuality in his autobiography called The Unsuitable Boy. However, in today’s interview, he said that the day Section 377 was decriminalised, he cried as he felt free. "I woke up and cried on September 6, 2018 for the community. I cried that there was freedom. It was a historic moment. I was just glad that it was accepted legally. That particular day, ironically, was my father's birthday. I felt the freedom that day".

He also expressed that "I think gay marriages being allowed is the next step. I hope that it happens soon". It is sad that people in India still perceive the concept of homosexuality with hatred and prude. Sometimes, they are mocked too. Karan’s relief with the law is quite understandable as he has been trolled many times for the same. On the other hand, Karan’s controversial statement on not having an affair with any Bollywood star, well, it is no wonder as B-town never fails to astonish us with overnight rumoured couples and alleged affairs.
