MUMBAI: One of Bollywood’s most sought after film-maker – Karan Johar turned forty yesterday, and the who’s who of the Indian Film Industry came to wish the birthday boy, at a ‘designer’ extravaganza organized by good friend Manish Malhotra at a suburban five star. True to Manish’s design sense, the party area was opulent and luxurious with velvet diamond studded curtains, an open bar counter and shining red candles at every table.
