Ace filmmaker Karan Johar often makes headlines for making some candid and shocking confessions. He never shies away from sharing details about his personal front and speaking of this, in a new interview KJo revealed that his late father Yash Johar left a business letter for him about the importance of trusting the right people. Karan said he received the letter days after his dad’s death and it had financial advice as well as information about ‘people he should trust and those he should not.
Speaking with Masters' Union's Business of Bollywood, the 50-year-old director asserted that he took his father’s letter like a Bible. Karan was quoted saying, “It was a business letter, it wasn't an emotional letter. That letter actually said where the funds were in terms of your mutual funds, your investments. He even said these are people you trust these are people you don't trust. This is how you should take the business forward. It became kind of my Bible. So I took that Bible like five to six pages of detailed things about bank accounts and bank where money is, where property investments are.” ALSO, READ: Karan Johar Remembers Father Yash Johar On His Death Anniversary
