Bollywood as a whole has always stood together for the rights of the LGBTQ+ people. But among the many, it is Dostana filmmaker, Karan Johar who has always been vocal about gay rights in India. There was a time when the director denied to say the three words (I Am Gay) in his autobiography. But after the Supreme Court abolishing Section 377, no person can stop two people of the same gender to fall in love. Karan who is currently at Davos in Switzerland for the ongoing World Economic Forum 2019, spoke to India Today and spilled a lot of beans. Right from the Hardik Pandya and KL Rahul controversy, his stance on the LGBTQ community to his desire to make a homosexual film, KJo was candid and how.
Amid the discussion on the LGBTQ topic during the forum, when Karan was asked how can he contribute to the community in India, Johar said, "Being a leading filmmaker, I can make movies on the subject. I would love to make a homosexual love story and would want to cast two leading actors in the film. I don't have in mind specific names of the actors I want to cast in the film, but I surely want to make such a film."

Further, when Karan was asked whether he is ready to serve a film like this for the Indian audience, he answered, "I am ready to make a legit gay story, but I really hope the Indian audience is ready to accept it. I would want to start working on it right after I am done directing Takht, which is likely to hit the theatres in 2020."
So that's it after Takht Karan is all set to churn a film on a homosexual love story. Indeed interesting!
