Karan Johar is perhaps the busiest producer-director in the Indian film industry. Besides everything else that he has got going, he even directed a short film called, Lust Stories in collaboration with Anurag Kashyap, Zoya Akhtar, and Dibakar Banerjee. He was seen promoting the same on Film Companion and as usual was his charming and candid self throughout. During the interview, KJo was asked about the most embarrassing moment of his life and he revealed an incident that left everyone around in splits!
Karan disclosed that he found himself in a rather sticky situation while they were shooting for Sooraj Hua Madham from Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham. Here’s what he said:
So, I got the loosies one day in the middle of Egypt, while we were shooting Sooraj Huya Madham (Kabhie Khushi Kabhie Gham). I got a bad loose motions attack. And we were in this location where there were these lime stone structures and I just had to go behind one of them.
Think that is funny? Wait till you read the rest of it:
I went very far and there was this other person who was having the similar problem and he was behind another limestone. And, we both stared at each other, we both knew we were hiding. And it was the most embarrassing emotion. He stared at me and I stared at him and we were both in squat positions and I was like, ‘I am gonna die’ because he found the limestone, as did I, and we both thought we won’t tell anyone. But, it was a very bad attack that I had. I couldn’t help it. The vanity van was two kilometers away. Yeah, so.
Wondering where all this went down?
It’s called Far Fara dessert, where we shot that part. And it has my remains for life now.
YEP! That is one embarrassing memory to have and share on camera! :D
