Karan Johar and Rishi Kapoor to bare it all as they unveil their autobiographies in January
Two Hindi cinema juggernauts are scheduled to release their autobiographies next month as announced by them on Twitter. Quite active on the micro blogging website, filmmaker Karan Johar and veteran actor Rishi Kapoor announced details of their autobiographies from their accounts.
While both of them had announced that they were working on their autobiographies earlier this year, Johar unveiled the trailer of the book on Twitter on the same day as Kapoor announced the release date of his book.
Johar's autobiography is titled An Unsuitable Boy, a reference to Vikram Seth's critically acclaimed book A Suitable Boy. It will explore the director's life in his personal capacity rather than the many professional hats he has donned over the years. Johar, who has co-written the book with Poonam Saxena, was planning to unveil the book on his 44th birthday on 25 May but went on to push the release to January 2017.
He spoke briefly about the book at the ninth Jaipur Literature Festival in January where he discussed his effeminate side and body shaming issues in his childhood. He also added that he has gone no holds barred on the same in his book.

However, Johar is not the only one who is going to narrate the story of his life come January. His collaborator in films like Student of the Year, Rishi Kapoor will also unveil his unabashed and uninhibited autobiography on 15 January, as revealed by the actor on Twitter.
The autobiography is aptly titled Khullam Khulla which is an appropriate adjective to his uncensored commentary on issues as well as a witty reference to his song from Ravi Tandon's 1975 romantic drama Khel Khel Mein which featured Rishi and his wife Neetu Kapoor.

While Johar's autobiography is expected to be pensive and intense, Rishi's is touted as a humorous and light read just like the jolly off-screen personality of the actor. Irrespective of the genre, the filmy fans eagerly await January so that they can dig deeper into the lives of their favourite filmmaker and actor.
