Following the recent legalissation of gay marriage in the US, a Twitter user took a jab at Karan Johar, hinting at his sexuality. An outraged KJo, expressed his utmost contempt at the tweet.
To which Karan replied:

"If I was interested in dating women, she would probably be the woman I would want to date. Of course, she has her limitations and so do I," said KJo talking about his long-time collaborator and best friend, actress Kareena Kapoor.
Many took the statement as a confirmation of his homosexuality, and he has since been the butt of gay jokes.
However, his reply to Pratik's tweet was not well-received by a few who accused the 43-year-old of hypocrisy.
