I strongly feel that Karan Johar has done more for homosexuality than anyone else in this country. He has done it in his own self-deprecating, farcical manner in the movies he has made and the TV shows that he has been a part of, but he has definitely normalised the idea of talking about the topic so much so that it’s almost a living room conversation these days.
I also agree with his point of view that humour is the best way to reach the masses of this country. Indians will respond readily to comedy over a serious narrative addressing an issue.
There are many lessons for the earnest reader to learn from Karan Johar, who is perhaps one of contemporary Indian cinema’s most influential servants.
