MUMBAI: Bollywood’s most loved director Karan Johar celebrates his 41st birthday after giving many hits as a director. We have seen Karan Johar as a film director, producer, screenwriter, costume designer and television host.
How many know Karan the actor? The other side of KJo as an actor, the extremely multi-talented Mr. Johar was seen in a cameo in ‘Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge’ as Shah Rukh Khan’s friend Rocky.
He also played cameo in movies like ‘Main Hoon Na’ where he appears in the end-credits of the film with a board in his hand, as a costume designer of Shah Rukh Khan.
Karan also gave special appearances in movies like ‘Home Delivery: Aapko… Ghar Tak’, ‘Salaam-e-Ishq’, ‘Alag’, ‘Om Shanti Om’, ‘C Kkompany’, ‘Fashion’ and ‘Luck By Chance’.
Karan Johar is noted as one of the few directors in recent times who had managed to put Hindi films in a global spotlight. He was one of those four distinguished directors, who gave a tribute to the Indian Cinema on its centenary year with ‘Bombay Talkies’ and which has found its way at Cannes festival this year. KJo has been a discerning director-producer who excelled at family dramas and romantic comedies. But with a breakthrough short film in the portmanteau collection of ‘Bombay Talkies’ we see the rise of a filmmaker willing to take a chance and experiment with subjects considered radical in the given hindi film space.
We wish KJo a very Happy Birthday and expect a lot more for the very talented man in years to come.
