Karan Johar just released his book An Unsuitable Boy, which has become quite the rage already owing to his candid confessions. He talks about himself and his relationships like never before. Whether it was about his sexuality, his equation with Shah Rukh Khan or his fight with Kareena Kapoor – there were no holds barred. At the launch of his book, he touched upon the topic of parenting.
I would like to be a parent. I don’t know in what capacity, I don’t know how it’s going to happen, I don’t have answers to those questions. But I do feel the need because I have love to offer. Since it (love) is there, I would like to take it forward. I feel the paternal instinct needs to be acted upon. I feel there is so much within me and the love has to have a release, it is not going into a relationship, it goes to my mother, friends, company.”
He also added he still feels very protective about his students of the year.
I feel I have a nurturing quality in me. I saw that most when I launched Alia, Sidharth and Varun. I can’t let them go off even now. It has been nearly five years but I see myself staring at what they’re doing. Even for all those at ‘Dharma’. The emotion comes from a very strong paternal space.”
Awww, Karan. We’re sure he’d make a wonderful and loving father. Won’t he? 🙂
