Filmmaker Karan Johar says one should not start a relationship with "ridiculous expectations".
"Stop putting virginity on a pedestal and do not judge people based on their s3xual status," Karan said in a statement to.
"Your partner is human and not a loaf of bread. It's 2018 and let's not have any such ridiculous expectations," he added.
In the first episode of radio show "Calling Karan Season 2" at Ishq 104.8 FM, the filmmaker spoke on virginity and how one's s3xual status should not even be a concern.
While receiving calls on whether there was a need for disclosing the s3xual status to their partners specially in case of arrange marriages, Karan advised people to be extremely honest about it.
He said: "I don't think one should worry about a man judging you on your past physical status. You should be honest to yourself and about yourself."
