About the Author
KARAN JOHAR is one of the leading directors, producers and writers in the Hindi film industry. He is the son of a much-respected film producer, Yash Johar, who set up Dharma Productions in 1976 (when Karan was just five years old); Karan took over his father's legacy following his death in 2004. Over the years, he has built Dharma into a powerful, influential and flourishing entity.
Karan began his tryst with filmdom in 1995 as an assistant to filmmaker Aditya Chopra on the sets of Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge (1995). Subsequently, Karan made his debut as director with Kuch Kuch Hota Hai (1998), which went on to become a blockbuster. He has directed six major films and produced over twenty, all starring some of the biggest names in Bollywood. He recently made his first appearance as actor, in Anurag Kashyap's Bombay Velvet (2015). Most of his films have won several awards; he himself has won Best Director award several times.
Karan has tackled all sorts of compelling themes in his films, from family values (Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham) and infidelity (Kabhi Alvida Na Kehna) to autism and religious prejudice (My Name Is Khan) and homosexuality (Bombay Talkies).
The multitalented Karan also began a celebrity chat show on TV in 2004, Koffee with Karan, which became a runaway hit. There have been four seasons till now and it is one of the most-watched shows, routinely making headlines. He has dabbled in fashion design, and even done the costumes for films such as Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge, Mohabbatein and Dil To Pagal Hai.
An extremely popular and well-liked member of the film fraternity, Karan has come to be regarded as a spokesman of the industry.
In 2007, he was chosen as one of 250 Global Young Leaders by the World Economic Forum.

Recommend this book to bollywood buffs, autobiography lovers and people who hate Karan Johar but can't articulate why.
I admit I was curious to know about him, in places he comes across a snob who looks down upon his own friends who speak in Hindi to being the typical South Mumbai person. He speaks better than he writes! Repetitive, it was easy to flip a few pages and know that you haven't missed anything. You can't do that with a good book can you? Pick it up if you want, but even if you don't you will not miss much.
Writing wise, it's not a gem. "I" was being used too many times, sometimes thrice in a sentence! The proofreader too, didn't do his job. There are so many spelling and grammar mistakes which is painful! May be the second edition will correct this errors. Otherwise, it's just okay kinda book.
You feel for Karan while reading the book, you go through the various emotions he is undergoing.
Celebrities also have their highs and lows and this book showcases it. Somehow you connect with him over this book!
You get to learn so much about the film world from this book, read this specially if you are a movie buff!
