Karan Johar is one of the most talked-about Bollywood directors and producers. He is celebrating his 50th birthday today. The celebrations began last night, and inside birthday bash photos have been surfacing on social media. In the midst of all this excitement, Karan previously took to his Twitter handle to tease a special announcement, leaving his fans in suspense.
Now Karan has shared a note on his Instagram where he looked back on his journey in the Bollywood industry. “Hello all. This is a note of reflection and one of immense excitement! I turn 50 today (a number that seemed like a distant nightmare), while I know it’s kind of a mid-point of my life but I can’t help my wannabe millennial self from existing. Some call it a mid-life crisis, I proudly call it just ‘living life without any apologies’. I have worked in the movie industry for over 27 years and I’m blessed to have had the best experience ever!!! Telling stories, creating content, nurturing talent and watching the finest artists perform in front of my privileged eyes… these years are like being in a massive dream that made all the sleeplessness seem worthwhile! I am grateful for the brickbats, the bouquets, the praising souls, the public trolls….ALL OF IT!!! It’s all been a huge part of my learning curve and self growth…..”
He continued, “The one aspect that I believe I am most passionate about is being a filmmaker! In the past I have always taken long gaps between my films but today on this special day I would like to announce my next directorial feature….Rocky aur Rani ki Prem Kahani will release on the 10th of February 2023.”
For his big announcement, Karan revealed that he would be directing an action film next: “And I will commence the shoot of my ACTION FILM in APRIL 2023. Need your blessings and love! And I have to shamelessly sign off by saying Jug Jugg Jeeyo to all of you…..My love forever, Karan Johar.”
Karan is currently working on his directorial feature, Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahani. Ranveer Singh, Alia Bhatt, Dharmendra, Jaya Bachchan, and Shabana Azmi star in the family-based romantic comedy. It is preparing for a Valentine’s Day 2022 release in theatres. Among his many production ventures are Jug Jugg Jeeyo, Brahmastra, Mr Aur Mrs Mahi, Yoddha, and Selfiee.
