Example text

But we always thought they were the bad boys. It was a strange divide in my head. If you smoked and drank, you were not well brought up. I was very popular, and participated in many extracurricular activities. I was someone who attended college. Others didn’t but I was very diligent about it. I wanted that experience. I loved the idea that I could meet all kinds of people from all kinds of places, from all cultures and subcultures across the city. Simultaneously, my father’s film career carried on, though not very well.

Actually, they were fun. I was the one who was not. I was this South Bombay, elite Malabar Hill snooty kid. Nobody talked to me because I was this snob. The truth is, I had a complex. So to cover that up, my defence was to come across as a snob. I remember the moment when Sara D’Mello came to class and said, ‘Karan Johar is new in this class and nobody is his friend. ’ Nobody put up their hand for a while and then Apoorva put up his, and I went and sat next to him. ’ I agreed. ’ So my mother started giving me vegetarian sandwiches and rolls, and brownies, and I began sharing them with the other kids.

I said, ‘Papa, what if I didn’t go to Paris? ’ At that time, he’d put in eight to ten lakh rupees. It was a lot of money. He had made a series of unsuccessful films; it wasn’t as if the money meant nothing. I said, ‘What if I don’t go, and assist Adi instead? He repeated, ‘Assist Adi? But he himself is making his first film. ’ Those days you were supposed to work with senior guys in order to learn film-making.
