New Delhi : Karan Johar said that he used to be called 'pansy' in school, but a teacher gave him the courage to face the world.
Karan said during an upcoming episode of Star Plus' "India's Next Superstar", "the word pansy, which is commonly used for a boy who talks and walks like a girl, was used for me".
A statement reads, Karan spoke about it following a contestant's performance of an act on a 'pansy' man who loved dancing, which left him moved.
He said, "This performance took me back to my childhood days. I used to dance on girls' songs and my friends used to make fun of me. Upset about this, I went to an elocution teacher at the age of 13 and she said, 'Why do you want to change the way talk, you're just fine'. That's when I gathered courage to face the world".
