Karan Johar Reacts To Being Trolled For His Sexuality, His Daughter Turning Into A Megalomaniac

Social media doesn’t come up with a disclaimer but those who have built their lives on it vouch for that with all the fame and stardom comes trolling, bullying, and a lot of judgments.

Filmmaker Karan Johar who is often seen online on social media platforms has also received his share of trolling, sometimes for being a loudmouth and other times for his sexuality.

However, with time, he has learned to keep his life private online and has started using the internet for his films.

“Eventually, it’s a platform that you are leveraging to build a connection with the world outside and it’s my job.”

“I’m not here to disassociate myself from my filmmaking or from my storytelling narrative which is the most critical part of who I’m,” he was seen saying in an interview with Janice Sequeira.

He added that he gets trolled a lot. “I don’t give a damn because I have stopped caring about the negativity as much as I have started focusing on the love.”

“Even now when I scan through the comment section I only stare at where the hearts are there. Commenting on my sexuality, commenting on what they believe I am, you know, I’ll be 50 in May and I’m so grateful for so much. Whatever I do they are going to say something negative about me.”

“Love me, hate me for heaven‚Äôs sake don’t be indifferent to me because that’s something that might kill me. Indifference is something that I can bear,” he added.

Not just the director, Karan Johar’s twins, Roohi Johar and Yash Johar, are also often seen doing a cameo on his Instagram account. Talking about his kids being comfortable and addicted to social media, he shares, “I was told ki kaala tika laga lo, nazar lagti hai.”

He added that his daughter has become a bit of a megalomaniac.

“I want to tell you that it‚Äôs quite strange and hilarious that Roohi has gotten addicted to her own videos. So now, she goes on to YouTube and types Roohi Johar and she pops out, and she is just staring at i. I think she has become a bit of a megalomaniac.‚ÄĚ

Recalling how it all started, he divulged, “It all started actually during the lockdown because we were all were sitting at home and there was nothing that anyone was doing and I put out one video and I just felt like it brought a lot of joyousness because the kids are cute and all.”

Like Karan, a lot of people have become immune to the incessant and insensitive bullying on social media. But is all this negativity really needed? Constructive criticism is what might help people and reduce this unnecessary gloominess from the universe. What say?
