Alia Bhatt is like my own Daughter 

Karan Johar who has recently turned into a radio jockey, had recorded a reverse rapid fire on his show with his callers asking random questions to him.

A caller who asked Karan if he thought asking a celebrity to lose weight for a role amounted to body-shaming, he admitted that he was guilty of the deed. “I asked Alia (Bhatt, who debuted with his Student of the Year in 2012) to lose weight and now, when I see her hysterical about how she looks, I feel responsible, he says.

When she came in, she was “pleasantly plump” but since a pre-requisite of mainstream cinema is that actresses be in great shape, he told her this and now she’s obsessed with her weight. She’s in the gym every day and even if she puts on an extra kilo, she goes crazy. I think I am to blame for it. Now that I am a parent, I would never do this to Roohi and I would like to apologise to Alia.” he added

The radio show will air on January 9 on 104.8 Ishq FM, the filmmaker also revealed that how unhappy he has felt when he was receiving comments like You’ve put on weight.

When asked Karan about Bollywood's fascination with being skinny he said it is an emulation of the West and B-town has always been obsessed with Hollywood. If they’re thin, sexy and wear satin gowns on the red carpet, we want to do the same, he sighs. When asked to pick out Bollywood’s best bodies, he singled out Katrina Kaif and Hrithik Roshan and revealed that he camouflages his extra kgs with black clothes. Women wear salwar kameez and men wear loose clothes for the same reason.

Let's see if Alia Bhatt will accept Karan's apology?
