Karan Johar, lovingly called KJo by his friends and family is one of the most celebrated directors of B-town. Responsible for launching several actors under Dharma Production, Karan has swooned us with superhits like Kuch Kuch Hota Hai, Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham, Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna, My Name Is Khan and many more.
Karan is not just a superb filmmaker but also a doting father to his twins, Yash and Roohi. It was in 2017 when Karan had announced the arrival of his little munchkins through surrogacy. He has kept his father’s name for his son and Roohi's name is the anagram of his mother, Hiroo's name.
Karan Johar believes in living his life king size and owns some of the most luxurious things. A true fashionista, Karan loves spending money on expensive designer labels. On May 25, 2022, the ace filmmaker turned 50 and to wish him, his close friend, Farah Khan posted a video giving glimpses of his huge walk-in closet filled with designer clothes, accessories and shoes. The video begins with a voiceover of Farah, who says, "Oh my god! We are in Karan Johar’s wardrobe and look who is in the closet" and pans the camera on Karan. Along with the video, she wrote:
"Happy 50th to @karanjohar… most sporting, witty and intelligent friend I have. PS- apologise for the number of times I said ‘Oh My God’."
In the video, Farah asked Karan, “Do you want to come out of your closet?" To this, Karan, indirectly referring to his sexual orientation, replied, “Been there, done that." Earlier Karan had talked about his sexual orientation during an event and had shared that his book, An Unsuitable Boy has the answer about his sexuality. Talking about the same, he had shared:
"I have never expressed my sexual orientation in those many words. I have insinuated a lot and have said what I wanted to say in my book. I will never say that I am embarrassed or ashamed to say it. I am very proud of who I am and who I will always be."
Karan Johar and Farah Khan share a great bond and their social media banter speaks volumes about the same. In the chat show, Yaaron Ki Baaraat, Karan Johar had talked about how once Farah Khan had expressed her interest in him. Talking about the same, Karan had revealed:
“Though yeh shaadi-shuda hai aur main kehna nahi chahta, Farah ne bohot koshish ki thi mere saath (Though she is married now and I don’t want to say this, Farah pursued me a lot).”
Happiest birthday, Karan!
