Popular director and producer, Karan Johar has turned a year older today, and his massive fanbase has taken over the internet, as they are dropping unseen pictures of him from the sets of his blockbuster films. At the same time, some are talking about his influence on Bollywood's King Khan, Shah Rukh Khan's life and how he was the one, who gave Indian cinema three exceptionally-talented actors, Alia Bhatt, Varun Dhawan and Sidharth Malhotra. Karan is receiving immense love and praise from his fans, friends, and family on social media.
However, there's one wish that has overshadowed all the others, and it is from Karan Johar's favourite student, Alia Bhatt. Yes! The Raazi actress has uploaded three unseen pictures with her mentor, Karan to wish him on his birthday. The pictures have once again proved that Karan holds a very special and important place in Alia's life, and he is one of the few people, who has played a vital role in her success in the film industry.
On May 25, 2022, Alia Bhatt took to her Instagram handle and shared three memorable pictures with her mentor and father-like figure, Karan Johar to wish him on his 50th birthday. However, it was the first picture that is doing rounds on social media at the moment as it is from Alia's haldi ceremony, and the two can be seen sharing a priceless moment. In the picture, Karan can be seen planting a peck of love on Alia's cheeks before putting haldi on her feet and arms. The second picture is a cutesy candid one from Alia's reception, and the third one is indeed a funny one as Alia can be seen giving an attitude look to Karan. Along with these pictures, Alia wrote in the caption:
"To the most generous soul I know! .. to the man who is my father .. my best friend .. and my mentor! (displayed in these pictures respectively) HAPPY 50TH BIRTHDAY K! I pray and wish for only love peace and joy in your life, you deserve it all and much much more for all the light and goodness you bring into peoples lives!!!

Everyone is aware of Alia Bhatt and Karan Johar's concrete bond that is nothing less than a father-daughter bond. Time and again, we have seen Karan and Alia standing up for each other in their respective battles and always having one another's back, no matter what. Back in April, when Alia had got married to Ranbir, everyone was aware that it was going to be an emotional moment for Karan to see Alia turning into a bride, and that's what had happened during her mehendi ceremony.
For the unversed, it was on April 13, 2022, when Alia Bhatt and Ranbir Kapoor's pre-wedding festivities had started with a traditional Hindu puja in the memory of the latter's father, late Rishi Kapoor. It was followed by a beautiful mehendi ceremony at Alia and Ranbir's residential property, Vastu. According to a source close to Bollywoodlife.com, Karan Johar had got a bit emotional when Alia was getting her hands and feet adorned with henna. The source had shared:
"Karan Johar cannot hold his emotions ahead of his daughter's wedding. He is just so happy to finally see them getting married. KJo always desired to see Alia and Ranbir married, and on the D day, he is holding emotions. As Alia and Ranbir are all geared up for the Mehendi ceremony, Karan Johar will apply a first Mehendi on his daughter's hand as it's the most special moment for him."
Happy birthday, Karan Johar!
