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.

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.
Secondly when a successful person like Kjo tells abt the struggle in his life, very different of ours, it becomes a good read.
He time and again mentions his bonding with his parents, the constant pampering from his father as he was a late issue, the role of Adi Chopra and SRK in his life: u r bound to get mesmamarized, if you are a film buff, it talks about the behind the scenes of many successful movies of Dharma Production.
Kjo makes various candid confession in this book.
Also I should mention the film marketing aspects of various successful movies are mentioned by Kjo so reluctantly.
So this book has drama, this book has learnings, this book has gossips, highly recommended by bollywood movie buffs.
I loved Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham. I can watch it a hundred times and cry each time. But am not a fan of all KJ's work. In this book I love the way he has addressed issues in a casual everyday manner. He has opened his heart, his insecurities and fears. You can't help but love this funny, irreverent, messed-up person.
A big hug for you Karan if you are reading this and wishing you the very best.
