Right now, KJo is basking in the success of his latest directorial film, Rocky Aur Rani Kii Prem Kahaani. Alia Bhatt and Ranveer Singh starrer has already crossed the 100 crore mark at the box office and is continuing to grow.

When Karan celebrated his 25 years

Before releasing the trailer of Rocky Aur Rani Kii Prem Kahaani, the director shared a small video. It was about his 25 years of journey. He captioned, “Nothing but gratitude for the magical 25 years I have spent in the director’s chair. I learnt, I grew, I wept, I laughed – I lived. And tomorrow, another piece of my heart will be yours to see and I could not be more ecstatic as I celebrate my birthday with you all. With a kahaani that has prem written all over it.
