Filmmaker Karan Johar has never confessed about his sexuality but he has been always vocal about his sexual orientation. In a new interview on We Are Yuvaa's podcast, Karan revealed that he once pretended to have a girlfriend when he was in 10th standard. 

In the podcast, Karan said, ''She was also Headgirl. In 10th standard, every boy was crushing on a girl. So I thought I should also join this bandwagon and start crushing on her. So I gave her a card, no rose, on Rose Day, not Valentine's Day. She took my card and then called me. And maybe, she was my first reality check. She said, 'You didn't want to give me this card, do you?' I said, ‘No I think you are really nice and I like you.’ She said, ‘Ya, but like you don’t want to give me this card or rose?' And I thought it was rather evolved of her because I really didn't. So obviously, I've exchanged (Valentine's Day) gifts, but for all the wrong reasons, to be ‘cool'''.

Earlier, in his memoir, 'An Unsuitable Boy', Karan had admitted that the first and the last girl he had a crush on was his childhood friend, actor, and author Twinkle Khanna.

On the work front, Karan Johar made his debut as director this year with 'Rocky Aur Rani Kii Prem Kahaani', featuring Alia Bhatt and Ranveer Singh in lead roles. He recently completed 25 years of being a director. KJo is all set to host 'Koffee With Karan 8' that premieres on October 26. The first episode features Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh.
