Publisher's Summary

Karan Johar is synonymous with success, panache, quick wit, and outspokenness, which sometimes inadvertently creates controversy and makes headlines. KJo, as he is popularly called, has been a much-loved Bollywood film director, producer, actor, and discoverer of new talent. With his flagship Dharma Production, he has constantly challenged the norms, written and rewritten rules, and set trends.

But who is the man behind the icon we all know? Baring all for the first time in his autobiography, An Unsuitable Boy, KJo reminisces about his childhood, the influence of his Sindhi mother and Punjabi father, obsession with Bollywood, foray into films, friendships with Aditya Chopra, SRK and Kajol, his love life, the AIB roast, and much more. In his trademark frank style, he talks about the ever-changing face of Indian cinema, challenges, and learnings, as well as friendships and rivalries in the industry.

Honest, heart-warming and insightful, An Unsuitable Boy is both the story of the life of an exceptional filmmaker at the peak of his powers and of an equally extraordinary human being who shows you how to survive and succeed in life.

A Story worth listening!

I always wanted to know how it must be like being Karan Johar. What’s his process in life, where he manages people and business so efficiently. What led him to become this 360 degree, personality which everyone secretly desires.

Well this audio book says it all, after listening to this audio book, somewhere you will get a sense of yourself to explore those moments and situations in your life, where there are incompletions with people, surroundings etc. which you can complete and choose to be an author of your life.

After listening to this audio book I just want to give a big hug to Karan and wish him all the very best coming on his way.

Karan should've performed it

I love KJo, the personality. This book doesn't tell me anything that I already didn't know. I found the writing tedious and boring. So much better to watch him on screen- talking, dancing, making films.

Bollywood fanlit

If you enjoyed his films, and enjoy Bollywood as an experience, you’ll enjoy this. Johar comes across as insecure and vulnerable, but not in a grotesque way. Rather, in an endearing fashion.
