Bollywood filmmaker Karan Johar is celebrating his 48th birthday on May 25 which also marks the festival of Eid. From Kuch Kuch Hota Hai to My Name is Khan, the quintessential king of glamour and candyfloss romance has given some worthy pieces to the Bollywood cinema. Not only this, but he is also the one who has given the big Bollywood break to many talented actors out there. His birthday fell during the coronavirus lockdown which obviously means there would be no big B'town party today but this hasn't stop celebrities from pouring birthday wishes for the director who is these days quarantining with his two adorable kids-Yash and Roohi and his mother Hiroo Johar. Actresses Ananya Panday, Sonam Kapoor, and fashion designer Manish Malhotra were the first ones to wish the star.
Alia Bhatt who was launched by Karan Johar in the film 'Student Of The Year' took to Instagram to wish him birthday and wrote, "aliaabhatt happy birthday my friend, father.. my family here’s to many many many more moments of love, laughs, movies and our uncontrollable need to pose for pictures and selfies."
