India is shocked about the ‘gay’ Bollywood actor


Director and talk show host Karan Johar has caused a scandal by publishing his autobiographic book. Nobody could tell exactly whether Johar is gay or straight, so there were lots of gossips around him. Now he clarified it a little bit, but still, nothing is said certainly. “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. Which is why I Karan Johar will not say the three words that possibly everybody knows about me,” he writes, “The reason I don’t say it out aloud is simply that I don’t want to be dealing with the FIRs [police complaints]. I’m very sorry. I have a job, I have a commitment to my company, to my people who work for me; there are over a hundred people that I’m answerable to. I’m not going to sit in the courts because of ridiculous, completely bigoted individuals who have no education, no intelligence, who go into some kind of rapture for publicity.” Homosexuality is illegal in India, and even though the country’s LGBT activists are judging Johar for refusing to come out because it could possibly change the attitude of Indians to gay people, it really may be dangerous for his career and even life
