Karan Johar is arguably the most popular Hindi director we have today. He makes movies and also judges and hosts reality shows. He is also quite active on social media. The Kuch Hota Hai director as of late talked about social media and trolling in an interview with Janice Sequeira. He said that social media is a stage that one leverages to build a connection with the world outside. He added that he’s not on social media to disassociate himself from his filmmaking or for his storytelling narrative which is the most critical part of who he is. He proceeded to say that it defines him and if he has a film release he is going to use social media as a place.
He also talked about getting trolled ‘a lot’ but he couldn’t care less. He said that he has stopped caring about the negativity and began focusing on love. He added that he when he look over the comment section, he only looks at where the hearts are there. “Commenting on my sexuality, commenting on what they believe I am, you know, I’ll be 50 in May and I’m so grateful for so much,” said Karan.
Speaking about his funda, he indirectly gave a message to trolls. Said the director, “Love me, hate me for heaven’s sake don’t be indifferent to me because that’s something that might kill me. Indifference is something that I can bear.”
