Bollywood filmmaker Karan Johar is quite vocal about his thoughts and emotions. While the entire country loves the festival of Holi, KJo admits that he hates it.
He blames Abhishek Bachchan of not loving the festival. Karan told Mid-Day, "When I was seven, the kids in my colony ran behind me to put silver colour paint on me. Trying to save myself, I fell down and got hurt, and ended up in a fight with the other kids."
"I fondly remember visiting Amitji's [Amitabh Bachchan] house for Holi when I was 10. I told him why I feared the festival so much. That's when Abhishek came inside the room, picked me up and threw me in a pool of coloured water. That was the end of my love for Holi and I haven't played ever since."
We understand Karan, it is sad. But we also know that you must have forgiven Abhishek.
Abhishek and Karan are close friends and in fact, KJo shares a good relationship with the entire Bachchan family.
Over the years, Holi is celebrated with fervour in Bollywood as many celebrities throw Holi bashes. However, this year celebs it seems different due to the sudden demise of Sridevi.
