According Times of India report which shared some edited excerpts from KJo’s biography, which has been co-authored by Poonam Saxena, Karan Johar spoke about his sexuality and how he was traumatized by rumours about him and good friend Shah Rukh Khan. Talking about his sexuality, Karan Johar said, "Everybody knows what my sexual orientation is. I don't need to scream it out. If I need to spell it out, I won't only because I live in a country where I could possibly be jailed for saying this." Karan Johar feels, ‘People talk nonsense, and if a man does not have an extramarital affair, he is supposed to be gay.’ He felt harder to simply brush aside were hurtful rumours linking him with close friend Shah Rukh Khan. Karan said that he has always looked up to Shah Rukh as an older brother. "For years there were rumours about Shah Rukh and me. And I was traumatized by it. I was on a show on a Hindi channel, and I was asked about Shah Rukh: 'Yeh anokha rishta hai aap ka,' the interviewer said. He worded it in such a way that I got really angry. I said, 'If I asked you if you are sleeping with your brother, how will you feel?' So he said, 'What do you mean? How can you ask me this question?' I said, 'How could you ask me this question? For me, no matter what ups and downs Shah Rukh and I have been through, he is a father figure, an older brother to me. For me to look at him in that way or be subjected to those rumours was just ridiculous," said Karan Johar.
