Gay or Straight: Karan Johar on his sexual orientation mystery!

Filmmaker Karan Johar's personal life, particularly, his love life has drawn the attention of not just gossip columnists and journalists who cover glamour but also mainstream newspapers.

Time and again K Jo has been asked, either directly or subtly, about his sexual preference.

Does media really need to hound any person and does Johar owe explanation to them?

Once again actress Simi Garewal in a television interview asked him about his orientation.

And again Johar said that whether he was 'bisexual, trisexual or heterosexual...was none of anybody's business.

In the interview, he said that whether he was in love with women or men, doesn't need to be told to anyone. True, to an extent, it is not anyone's business. But a celebrity has to pay the price of his status, especially, in the world of movies.

Johar is a victim of that. He hasn't spoken on his sexuality. To an extent, media persons are also justified, as Karan has once again refused to clear the air. The 39-year-old, who is also an actor, appeared on the TV show India's Most Desirable.

Despite opening up a bit and speaking about his issues with other Bollywood personalities and his relationship with Shahrukh Khan and Salman Khan, Jauhar didn't fall in the trap when the veteran actress asked her about the rumours surrounding him and the secret about his love life that remains hidden from public eye.

Johar, the son of film producer Yash Johar, hasn't been linked to any fellow star or shown interest towards any actor. As a parting shot, he said in the interview that he didn't mind when people speculate about his sexual preference or rumours abound that he is in a homosexual relationship.

Is the media too intrusive in this case? A single at 39, hasn't he been bothered enough. Perhaps, it's time to leave him alone.Garewal has asked him directly the question which was in the minds of millions of his fans but now that he has openly said it that he won't speak on his sexuality, it's time to stop bothering him.

Of course, you can make up your mind after his refusal. Won't you!
