Karan Johar Shares Invaluable Lesson That Yash Johar Used To Tell Him, Reveals If He Still Follows

We all mostly talk about the contribution of our mothers in shaping our lives (which is undeniably true in almost all cases), but we often forget to acknowledge the support of our fathers who pave the root for our moms to shape our lives. Fathers are those unsung heroes who never want a name for themselves, but in turn, is the chatrachaya on the entire family. Before you take out your phone to give your daddy dear a buzz, don’t you want to know what Karan Johar has written for Yash Johar in an open letter? ‘Yes’, we hear!

Those who have read Karan Johar’s debut novel, An Unsuitable Boy, will understand what a complete family man is this B-town celeb. Even in his Instagram posts and interviews, Karan is just full of gratitude about all that he has in his life. Even his Instagram bio says “A father and then a filmmaker.” Now you know what we are talking about! The Dharma Productions star always keeps on sharing blasts from the past. On June 07, 2019, he had taken to Instagram and posted a throwback picture of many well-known Bollywood stars. He had written, “#flashbackfriday !! Papa with #rajkapoor #sadhana #anandbakshi #RKnayyar #rajendrakumar thank you for this image #kssanjay.”

It was just a while back when Karan Johar took to Instagram and shared a close-up picture of his father, Yash Johar. Along with the picture, he had a message for his father, wherein he shared a valuable teaching of his. This is what Karan wrote, “He said to me once... “people need people... you have to be there for people because one day you will need them to stand by you....” I try papa! I fail... I succeed .... but I always try.....” And what followed was a series of comments from many B-town stars. Take a look at some of the snapshots below:

It was Father’s Day on June 16, 2019, and Karan Johar had taken to Instagram and had posted a throwback picture of himself with his father, Yash Johar. Wishing him a heartfelt Father’s Day, the Kuch Kuch Hota Hai director had written, “Papa! We have a daughter named after mom and a son named after you ..... you would have pinched their cheeks like you always pinched mine! They call me dada! And I want to be the father to them that you were to me....#happyfathersday.” (Must Read: Rajinikanth's Grandson Ved Imitating His 'Petta' Pose Will Make You Say 'Like Grandpa Like Grandson')

One of Karan Johar’s last dream project was his multi-starrer, Kalank. He had shared in an interview with the IANS that the film means a lot to him because it was his father’s dream project. He had shared, “Though all our films are special for us, I would say, Kalank is beyond its box office (collection) and beyond its commerce because it was my father's dream that has got fulfilled with the release of the film. After the release of Kal Ho Naa Ho in 2003, I shared the story of Kalank with my father. Since my father had knowledge about the subject... it became his dream to make the film.”

It was indeed unfortunate that we had lost Yash Johar in 2004. The mega-producer had died of chest infection. Karan Johar once had revealed the difficult time he underwent after his father’s demise, "I was very emotional after his demise and though I prepared myself, I finally couldn't go on floors to shoot the film. I kept telling the story to everyone, insiders of the Dharma Productions' family. Finally, when I shared the story with Abhishek (director Abhishek Verman), I felt that if he helms the film, the story will be in good hands.”

Not just his father, Yash Johar but Karan Johar is in awe of his mommy, Hiroo Johar too! On March 8, 2018, i.e., International Women’s Day, Karan Johar had shared a heartfelt message wishing to raise Roohi just like her grandmother. He had said, “I was raised by a woman who had a strong mind, an independent mind and a solid soul. She taught me how to live a fearless life along with a strong sense of right and wrong! She also taught me the art of abandon! She made me the man I am, a man who is honoured to be raised by a woman of substance! Roohi my darling I hope I raise you to be just like your grandmother.” (Also Read: Soni Razdan Shares Throwback Pic When She Was 21, Fans Amazed By Uncanny Resemblance With Alia Bhatt)

Karan Johar, now, is himself a daddy to two twins, Yash and Roohi (named after his parents, Yash and Hiroo), whom he had welcomed via surrogacy. In an interview with Pinkvilla, he had reasoned out their names, “It was a given. I always wanted this. I was dying to name my kids after them. Because the three of us are like a solid one unit family. I don't say this in a sappy or emotional way but I say this with all my heart. We're a complete unit. Even when I lost my dad I am completed by his memory. So I thought I needed to take the legacy of that love ahead. I am glad I got the opportunity to do so with my kids. I always said that if I have a boy or a girl I will name both of them after my parents. But if I have two boys or two girls then I won't do because then one of them would feel bad and I had no backup plans to these names. I think I've been very blessed and fortunate that I got these two and named them Yash which is my dad's name and Roohi which has been taken from Hiroo, my mother's name.”
