Bollywood filmmaker Karan Johar honoured in UK Parliament

One of Bollywood’s leading filmmakers, Karan Johar, has been honoured for his work in the field of Indian cinema at an event hosted by Baroness Sandy Verma in the Houses of Parliament complex in London this week.

Johar, the award-winning director behind box-office hits such as ‘Kuch Kuch Hota Hai’ and ‘Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham’ was honoured for his contribution to the global entertainment industry as he celebrates his 25th year in the film industry.

Johar, in charge of production house Dharma Productions, has a special relationship with the UK – having shot many of his productions including ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’ in Britain. In 2012, he was appointed as a Goodwill Ambassador for Visit Britain for a special campaign to attract and invite people to visit and explore the country.

His blockbuster movies likeMy Name Is Khan’ became the highest grossing Indian films at the UK box office, setting new records at the time.

Under his banner Dharma Productions, Johar has backed successful projects such as ‘Brahmastra Part One: Shiva’, ‘Sooryavanshi’, ‘Baahubhali’ and ‘Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani’.

He will celebrate his 25th anniversary year with another much-anticipated Bollywood release – ‘Rocky aur Rani Kii Prem Kahaani’ on July 28. This week also saw the launch of the film’s teaser launch featuring Dharmendra, Jaya Bachchan, Shabana Azmi, Ranveer Singh and Alia Bhatt.

The film is pitched as a wholesome, big-screen entertainer, blending Johar's storytelling finesse with an impressive ensemble cast, grandeur and music. Filling in a much-awaited family entertainer void at the big screen – the colourful visuals, mesmerising chemistry, musical spectacle coupled with drama, romance and heightened emotions are sure to get Karan Johar fans excited.
