'Conjecture' is a word that is used very often on filmmaker Karan Johar's chat show on TV 'Koffee with Karan' and it's also a word that is closely associated with his personal life. After all, there is a lot of speculation about his sexuality and rumours about his sex life.
One rumour that has doggedly chased Karan Johar throughout his life is his relationship with superstar Shah Rukh Khan.
While, earlier he would get upset about the rumours, nowadays he is calmer and even spoken about it on 'Koffee'.
And it is this calmness that allowed the 44-year-old to give an answer that involved SRK and him with a straight-face.
Shah Rukh Khan with Karan Johar
At the recent India Today Conclave 2017 in Mumbai, the host made the Bollywood filmmaker take part in a rapid fire round, like he does with his guests in his show. Only this time he was posed the questions.
The host asked whom would he choose to kill, marry and hook up with, if the options were Shah Rukh Khan, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Sidharth Malhotra.
KJo responded with, "I would marry Shah Rukh." And the reason for it, " I love his bungalow (Mannat in Bandra)."
Karan went on to say that he would kill both Aishwarya and Sidharth. "I'll kill Ash and Sid, because I'm not going to answer that question." he added.
Karan has written about the rumours with SRK that have plagued him in his book 'An Unsuitable Boy'. Karan wote about how he was traumatised by them since he considered Shah Rukh his elder brother, a father figure. He has said the same on his chat show as well.
