New Delhi: Filmmaker Karan Johar boldly embraced social media when it was still in its nascent stage. In his autobiography, An Unsuitable Boy, Karan Johar wrote that a certain section of the film industry was of the opinion that social media was best kept at arm's length but KJo gave it a shot anyway. Since then, Karan Johar has been constantly reinventing his style on Twitter. Have you seen his latest (and brutally honest) "Dear" series of tweets, in the style of Dear Zindagi and addressed to selfies, trolls, failure, the 'airport look,' and social media itself. On Wednesday, Karan Johar admitted to being a selfie addict and posted this SOS tweet: "Dear were a feature but now you are a creature.. we have been attacked by you! Help! Is there a rehab for selfie addicts?? (sic)."

KJo forgot to mention about the pout, without which he never takes a selfie. Here are some examples:

Black and white kind of day!!!

Karan Johar earlier addressed social media/Twitter trolls, the 'airport look' and failure. Take a look at KJo's other tweets:

His first tweet in the series, on the 'airport look,' resonated with celebrities who have learnt the hard way that the camera is never off even when you are dressed for a long-haul flight in your baggiest tracks, rattiest tee and comfiest shoes. Parineeti Chopra shared the tweet and wrote: "Truer words have never been spoken (sic)."

Dear Zindagi, all you had to do was ask Karan Johar.

Karan Johar last directed Ranbir Kapoor, Anushka Sharma and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan in 2016's Ae Dil Hai Mushkil. The xx-year-old filmmaker recently became a single father to twins Roohi and Yash. His last film as producer was this year's Badrinath Ki Dulhania, starring Alia Bhatt and Varun Dhawan. KJo's Dharma Productions also presented S S Rajamouli's Baahubali: The Conclusion in Hindi.
