Karan Johar; The Man who let India out of the closet, writes New York Times

The article says, "Mr Johar may not have uttered the three words but his life and work are a portrait in courage. One wants him not merely to be brave but happy, and needless to say, gay."

Karan Johar‘s recently released biography, An Unsuitable Boy was as candid as possible. Very smartly without saying he has revealed almost everything about himself in the book. New York Times magazine has applauded Karan for his bold and unapologetic attitude and paid a tribute to him in their latest issue. They quote, “One recent night in Mumbai I found myself at a small part at Mr Johar’s house. A group of stars had gathered on a balcony, overlooking the liquid darkness of sea and city lights. I had just finished Mr Johar’s book. Its last line is ‘Death does not scare me, life sometimes does.'”

They also talked about Karan Johar and the way he has explored gay factor in his films be it Dostana, Bombay Talkies or Kapoor & Sons. The magazine further says, quoting Karan Johar that it was very difficult for him to get an actor on board to portray the gay character, until Fawad Khan came on board.

The magazine concludes, “Mr Johar may not have uttered the three words but his life and work are a portrait in courage. One wants him not merely to be brave but happy, and needless to say, gay.”
