Director Karan Johar is going to be presented with an award today in the British parliament in recognition of his contributions to the entertainment sector on a worldwide scale. The ceremony will take place in the presence of both lords and members of parliament.
The event will be held at the Palace of Westminster, which is the location of meetings for both the House of Commons and the House of Lords, which are the two houses that make up the parliamentary system in the United Kingdom.
Karan has a unique connection to the United Kingdom due to the fact that a number of his films, such as Kuch Kuch Hota Hai, Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham, and Ae Dil Hai Mushkil, were shot in various locations around the country.
Rocky aur Rani Kii Prem Kahaani, starring Alia Bhatt and Ranveer Singh, opens July 28.
Both Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham and My Name Is Khan, two of Karan’s blockbuster flicks, were the highest-grossing Indian films ever at the box office in the United Kingdom shortly after their theatrical premieres, so setting new records.
Karan, who is presently the head of DHarma Productions, was selected as a Goodwill Ambassador for Visit Britain in 2012. This appointment was for the purpose of a particular campaign to encourage and invite people to visit and discover the United Kingdom.
The film director just reached the milestone of working in the international entertainment sector for 25 years. On July 28, his next film, Rocky aur Rani Kii Prem Kahaani, which stars Alia Bhatt and Ranveer Singh, will be released in theaters not only in the United Kingdom but also all over the world.
