Went to change my voice after people said I sound like a girl, Reveals Karan Johar


Karan Johar said he grew up being called "pansy" and was often mocked for 'being girlish'. The filmmaker said he was so tormented at one point that he thought of adding a baritone to his voice because people said he sounded like a girl. Karan said it is problematic when people start putting things in boxes and use phrases like "don't cry like a girl" or "be a man."

The Ae Dil Hai Mushkil director said he was 15-year-old when he went to the speech therapist as he was in that "awkward age" and his voice was "squeaky". "Everybody would say, 'You sound like a girl.' I heard that like a million times and I told the therapist, 'Can you make me sound like a boy?' It was not fun. I did it for three years. This gentleman gave me voice exercises. It was embarrassing and torturous. I used to tell my father that I was going to a tuition class because I did not want to say I was going to 'become a man.' I should not have been put through that. If I was sounding a certain way, it should have been okay," he added.
