SHOCKING! Karan Johar Had Anxiety Issues, Took Therapy After Trolls Abused His Kids; Says ‘Wasn't Even Telling People That I Was In Therapy’
The last episode of ‘Koffee With Karan Season 7’ turned out to be quite explosive as host Karan Johar made some shocking revelations. In one segment, he opened up about his mental health and revealed he battled with anxiety issues five years ago and even took therapy. KJo made this revelation after he was asked about how he deals with online criticism and trolls attacking him on social media. The director mentioned that he did not even tell anyone that he was taking therapy or that he was struggling with anxiety issues.

Karan stated that over the years he had built some kind of thick skin and thus means comments do not bother him. He remains unfazed when he reads putrid, and awful stuff about himself. He added, “They come down to even abusing my kids. Those are times when I feel like f***, just leave them out of it. I'm like, you can say whatever you want about me, my sexuality or about all the conspiracy theories they have that are really down and dirty. It really doesn't bother me and it's not like I have not been in therapy and I haven't had issues in the past.” ALSO READ: Karan Johar REACTS To Taapsee Pannu’s Dig Her Sex Life Isn’t Interesting Enough To Be Invited On Koffee With Karan 7; Here’s What KJo Has To Say!


Furthermore, the 50-year-old director revealed that his doctor told him he was actually brushing everything so deep within despite thinking he has thick skin. 

“There was an anxiety issue that I combatted 5 years ago and that was when I really opened up. You know, when I spoke to my doctor and she was a psychologist and she said that you are actually brushing everything so deep within that you actually think that you are dealing with it and that you have thick skin but actually you are shoving it into a dark, deep area and that's all going to pop up at some time. So, she said you shouldn't. So, at least I started talking about this fact to people because I was not even telling people that I was in therapy and that I was going through an issue of anxiety for 3 or 4 years,” Karan said on his show.

The final 12th episode of KWK7 was graced by influencers and comedians Kusha Kapila, Niharika NM, Tanmay Bhat, and Danish Sait. They all turned as jury members and asked Karan about accusations put against him and his show. The filmmaker also spoke about not inviting Taapsee Pannu to his chat show and about not being invited to Katrina Kaif and Vicky Kaushal’s wedding.
