Needless to say, this created quite a buzz amongst fans and many of them. lauded him for making such a bold statement.
However, it seems that the LGBTQ community is not too happy about
his remarks. As it so happens, Pallav Patankar—who is an LGBTQ activist-- has
slammed his comments and blamed him for ‘spreading fear’.
uneducated person in a remote Indian village comes and tells me that they are
scared of coming out, I’d take it, but this coming from somebody with a stature
as big as Karan’s, I feel let down. He should be coming out as an empowered and
powerful individual, and actually, make a difference for those helpless people
living in villages. People who were earlier considering coming out will now sit
and think twice, worried that a FIR might be involved — but this is baseless.
You won’t be arrested for coming out."
Well, it goes without saying these are some strong words and are likely to grab plenty of attention. Moreover, it will be worth watching how KJo deals with this situation. So, what’s your take on the issue? Please feel free to tell us in the space below.
