MUMBAI: Karan Johar, who has multiple reasons to be the most popular celebrity in his own way – be it for his controversial show ‘Koffee With Karan’, or his acting and directorial career, his TV appearances as judge in different shows and now he has turned an RJ.
In his talk show KWK, he introduced a ‘reverse rapid fire’ round which means he may be at the receiving end.
According to a report by Mumbai Mirror, KJo had to make a confession when a caller asked him if he thought asking a celebrity to lose weight for a role amounted to body-shaming.
The 45-year-old filmmaker admitted, “I asked Alia (Bhatt, who debuted with his ‘Student of the Year’ in 2012) to lose weight and now, when I see her hysterical about how she looks, I feel responsible.”
According to the Indian daily, Karan told her that she was “pleasantly plump”, which is why he thinks now she’s obsessed with her weight.
He went on to say, “She’s in the gym every day and even if she puts on an extra kilo, she goes crazy. I think I am to blame for it. Now that I am a parent, I would never do this to Roohi and I would like to apologise to Alia.”
In her career spanning over nine movies, the actress has done five with Karan including ‘Student Of The Year’, ‘Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania’, ‘Kapoor And Sons’, ‘Shaandaar’ and ‘Badrinath Ki Dulhania’.
