Actress Deepika Padukone, who is starring in Karan Johar's next home production Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani, is all excited to attend his 40th birthday party, which is hosted by fashion designer Manish Malhotra on May 25. The B-Town star has credited the filmmaker for the standing that she has in the film industry today.
Talking to PTI, Deepika Padukone said, "I remember meeting Karan when I was doing Om Shanti Om. They (Shahrukh Khan and Farah Khan) introduced me to him and I remember how warm he was towards me, the kind of encouragement he gave me when I was in the industry...I think it is because of people like him, why I am here today.”
Talking about attending Karan Johar's 40th birthday party on May 25, Deepika Padukone said, "Yes! I would be going. It is like a big event in our calendar...everyone is planning about it for a long time, who is wearing what. He is someone I am extremely fond of. I think it is his energy, the minute you are with him, he makes you feel light hearted and happy.”
However, producer Karan Johar turns 40 tomorrow. Famous fashion designer Manish Malhotra is hosting a grand birthday bash for him at a five-star hotel in Mumbai. According to reports, several Bollywood superstars including Shahrukh Khan, Salman Khan and Aamir Khan have been invited for it.
