He shared that he wanted his childhood to be shown in his biopic. As it was not only amazing but also unusual and because of that he had to face some challenges.
“My childhood, I had a wonderful childhood; my parents were so good to me and taught me the most amazing life lessons. However, it was also a bit bumpy as I was an unusual child and there were a few emotions that i harbored when i was so different from others so i had to pay the price for that it was hard but also a very energizing time because when i look back i I feel like I learned a lot in this phase.
Karan also revealed that even though his name is KJo, he doesn’t like the nickname and would like people to call him Karan. He shared his wish to one day have international stars Ellen DeGeneres and Meryl Streep as guests on his talk show.
