Is Karan Johar dating international fashion designer Prabal Gurung?

Bollywood as a whole has always supported LGBTQ rights. But among the many, it is Dostana filmmaker, Karan Johar who has always been vocal about gay rights in India. There was a time when the director denied to say the three words (I Am Gay) in his autobiography. But after the Supreme Court abolished Section 377 in a landmark verdict and decriminalised homosexuality, KJo has been spreading rainbows everywhere. It so happened that Karan Johar turned 47 recently and the whole of Bollywood wished the filmmaker in abundance. Yet, the BOMB dropped when American-Nepalese fashion designer Prabal Gurung wished KJo on his birthday.

Going by Prabal’s birthday post for Karan, all we can say is that there can be a possibility that the two are dating and want to be very open about it. While there have been rumours about KJo and Gurung seeing each other for quite some time now, the latter dropped a huge hint by posting a picture with Karan and him pouting on a stairway. Prabal took to his Insta and shared a cuddly photo with a caption that read, “Pyaar Kiya To Darna Kya (If in love, why to fear?). Happy birthday KJo.”

Have a look at the photo shared by Prabal Gurung on his Instagram below:

However, there’s a twist to this love story. Maybe with an aim to pour water over the fire, the Kuch Kuch Hota Hai filmmaker replied to Gurung’s photo with, “Control yourself bhaiya!” Just like us, even fans of the two seemed puzzled but they still congratulated the pair (if they are) for making it official.

While we do not know if Karan and Prabal are dating each other, we wonder if with this birthday post are the two finally ready to wave the rainbow flag in public?
