Director-producer Karan Johar has spoken candidly about his upbringing and struggles with body image. During his appearance as a guest on Tweak India, Karan said to Twinkle Khanna that he hasn’t really accepted his figure. He also added that the insecurity that started from being referred to as a ‘pansy’ throughout his academic years is the reason he now dresses loosely.

While recalling being referred as ‘Pansy from Green Lawns High School’ or ‘pansy from HR College’, Karan said, “That wasn’t my f*****g identity you know and that’s what it had become. When I entered college from school I realised I had to wear ‘manly clothes.’ I cannot wear stuff that I want to wear.”
KJo further added, “I’ll wear check shirts, jeans and sneakers so that I can fit in. I hope and pray that kids today don’t ever have to go through what we went through at that time. I hope parents are more understanding.”
Johar concluded by saying, “I have a big problem with fitted clothes because even if there’s a small roll, my mind will immediately go to that. I still look all around me when I enter the room. Now I have made it a thing where I wear these oversized clothes, but I actually can’t bear any tight thing, a t-shirt, shirt bothers me to no end.”
Coming to his professional front, the 55-year-old filmmaker will soon mark his directorial comeback with Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahani, starring Ranveer Singh and Alia Bhatt. The forthcoming film is slated to release on April 28 next year.
