Karan Johar always made sure his birthday is a memorable one (even though we’re not invited) with the big bash he hosts every year. Apart from the pap photos, the inside pictures and videos of the celebrities partying together went viral on the internet in no time. But this year looks like we’re going to miss all the videos.
KJo has headed to New York for a few days and will be celebrating his 47th birthday there today. In an interview with Hindustan Times, the filmmaker shared his birthday plans.
It’s with a few close friends and family in New York. I’m very excited to be here, just to walk the streets of the city that I really love. You can say that I’m kind of replenishing myself.
He further said that he used to be excited and be much more of a birthday person earlier. “I’d be all about celebrating it and having parties etc. But for the last couple of years, I’ve started to feel that it’s very silly of me to get so excited.”
He also added, “Now, I should be more kicked about my children’s birthdays and not mine. Yes, it’s a great day to feel the sense of love from your loved ones but I can’t be millennial about my birthdays anymore. Now, I have to start directing those energies towards my kids.”
In 2017, Karan Johar became a father to twins – Yash and Roohi– through surrogacy. “I am ecstatic to share with you all the two most wonderful additions to my life, my children and lifelines; Roohi and Yash. I feel enormously blessed to be a parent to these pieces of my heart who were welcomed into this world with the help of the marvels of medical science,” he had said in a statement.
Here’s wishing a very happy birthday to our favourite director!
