"A few are aware of the fact that during his growing up years, even Karan Johar was overweight. Also, as the only child of his parents, he was a protected lot," informs a close associate, "You have to see him in Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge, where he plays Shah Rukh Khan's friend, to know how awkward he could have possibly been during his growing up years."
It required a lot of perseverance as well as desire to pick up responsibilities on the part of Karan Johar before things started falling in place for the youngster. The result was Kuch Kuch Hota Hai and from that point on there was no looking back for Karan who not just found a confidence boost for himself but also brought himself in very good shape.
