Karan Johar Is The Man Who Let India Out of the Closet, Writes New York Times
New York Times posted an article on Karan Johar, according to them Karan is under tremendous pressure about his sexuality. A section of world population wants Karan to say he is gay. But he is not saying that.
New York Times believe it is Karan Johar who changed the way Indian people look at homosexuality. Before Karan’s films Indian men never used to address their sexuality, everyone was too afraid. Gay men are now living more openly in India, even in small towns.
New York Times ended the article with this passage, “Mr. Johar may not have uttered the three magic words, but his life and his work are a portrait in courage. Watching him play the host that night, I couldn’t help thinking that, for all his contradictions, he is a man who has done more than anyone to make India safe for love. One wants him not merely to be brave, but happy — and, needless to say, gay.”
Karan Johar’s biography An Unsuitable Boy is a good read, Karan is very open even in his TV show Koffee with Karan. He is not hiding anything, he is living his wife according to his wish and he is encouraging others to do the same thing.
