Karan Johar opens up on getting trolled for discussing celebs’ sex lives on KWK 7
In an interview, the Bollywood filmmaker went on to disclose why he discussed the sex lives of Bollywood celebrities on his chat show, KWK 7. During an interview with Bollywood Hungama, Karan said, “Maybe I’m curious about people’s sex lives so I asked about them. Maybe I am very proud of Alia, and it comes out in every conversation of mine.
“So we have to police myself when I get that feedback. I read it. But what amuses me is that there are wrong long columns people write and I’m like, ‘It’s just a talk show, which is not even a cerebral talk show.’ It’s a frivolous, fun talk show. But people have really analyzed it in long columns and I’m almost amused that they have all the time in the world to analyze the show. I wouldn’t give it that much time. I don’t know why they are.”
