'Kalank' producer recently appeared on Arbaaz Khan’s chat show 'Pinch' and coomented on the trolls who abuse him and make homophobic comments. He said: “It is my prerogative to talk about my life, my sexuality, my orientation. It is up to me. What I have a problem with is that there's a level of homophobia and that really bothers me because that's to me is sick. I mean you can talk about what you think my sexuality is, that is your prerogative, but if you are commenting and making gay sound bad that's when I have a problem because that means you have a sick mind, an uninformed mind, and an uneducated thought process."

He further added, “You can talk about me, but don't make it sound like I have a disease or something is wrong with me and I should shut up because you think I am gay. Then you should shut up because you have no life. That's the way I look at it".

Karan in the past also has posted his opinion and addressed the homophobia in the country. “I have become like the poster boy of homosexuality in this country. Twitter has the most abuse. I wake up to at least 200 hate posts saying, 'Get out, you're polluting our nation, you're dirtying society' or 'Shove [IPC Section] 377 up your arse.' I get this on a daily basis and I've learned to laugh it off."

Meanwhile, when Arbaaz asked who would he follow, unfollow and block on social media. KJo said: “I will block Ranbir Kapoor, he is not on social media. So, I can block him. I will unfollow Varun Dhawan, because I am following him all the time in life, anyway. I know his daily moves and he knows mine. He’s in touch with me all the time. And I’ll follow Sidharth Malhotra.”
