It is nothing strange to know about the fact that Filmmaker Karan Johar and Designer Manish Malhotra are best of friends in the Bollywood Industry for decades now. But, if Manish’s recent action is to be talked about, the rumor of them being a “relationship” might just make it a truth.
It was the occasion of Karan Johar’s 46th Birthday last week when Manish shared a picture with the filmmaker on his Instagram, saying, “Happy happy birthday my dearest bestest friend @karanjohar have a wonderful year ahead. 25 years of friendship and working together..and many more years to come and may you keep making the most wonderful films and keep being the spirited person that you are #karanjohar #friendship #friendslikefamily #Bff @mmalhotraworld.”
According to the report that is creating a huge buzz on social media, an Instagram user commented, “You guys are the cutest couple” on Manish’s picture for Karan Johar. And apparently, the ace designer even liked the comment which set tounges wagging and led people to believe that Manish’s ‘like’ is a confirmation that they are actually in a relationship.

It’s not just the ‘like’ here that is confirming the rumors of Manish and Karan dating each other, apparently, the two even had a cute conversation in the comments of Manish Malhotra’s picture post for Karan on his birthday.
Even though neither Karan nor Manish has ever expressed about their relationship in public, several hints have been dropped in the past during the AIB roast and Twinkle Khanna’s Section 377 remark on the filmmaker’s chat show. Whenever the filmmaker was asked to comment on the rumors, he constantly refused to do so.
“Everybody knows what my sexual orientation is. I don’t need to scream it out. If I need to spell it out, I won’t only because I live in a country where I could possibly be jailed for saying this,” he wrote in his memoir, An Unsuitable Boy.
