Rani Mukerji, who is currently busy in the promotion of her upcoming film Hichki, which talks about overcoming the obstacles in one’s life has been asking prominent personalities to share their untold weaknesses with the public and explain how they transformed them into their strengths.
After, SRK and Anil Kapoor, now filmmaker Karan Johar has opened up about his biggest Hichki and it will really leave you shocked.
Karan was teased at school for his “feminine” sounding voice and even took classes to improve his baritone.
“When I was a child, there were many ‘Hichki’ moments. The one that I wouldn’t have changed today, is that I had a very girlish voice when I was a child. I had a very squeaky voice and I used to get teased a lot,” Johar told Rani Mukerji.
The director said he found a teacher who helped instil confidence in him about his voice. “At those times, societal pressures were such that it (my voice) was a big ‘hichki’. I felt lesser and I was made to feel abnormal. And I felt like I needed to overcome this to be the person that I wanted to be. But today, times are different and we are all more evolved. I hope that if this kind of a hiccup comes in people’s lives that they shouldn’t change their core persona. But I did,” he added.
