As we all know that director and producer Karan Johar was very close to his father, Yash Johar. So, Karan along with his bestie Farah Khan, shared an old picture of his father. The picture was shared on the birthday anniversary of Yash Johar.
Karan captioned the picture with a beautiful note, “He gives me strength….he completes me in every way….my guiding light…my god for life……” It is to be noted that Yash Johar was the founder of Dharma Productions, who died at the age of 74 on June 26, 2004, after battling with cancer. The filmmaker gave so many blockbuster films like Dostana, Agneepath, Duplicate and so on.
Karan who is now a father of twins Yash and Roohi, has named his son after his father and his daughter’s is named afterKaran’s mother’s name Hiroo.
Other than Karan, director and choreographer, Farah Khan too remembered Yash Johar and shared a picture where we see Yash Johar posing with Farah’s mother Menaka Irani. She captioned it as, “Yash uncle with my mom at the housewarming of the 1st house Sajid n I bought.. @karanjohar he was part of all our khushis and ghams..”
After that Karan too commented on Farah’s post by writing, “He loved you Faru!!!,” and in a reply she posted, “@karanjohar as Did i…miss him.”
In his book, ‘An Unsuitable Boy’, Karan talked about the relationship with his father. The director accepted that if it was not for the support of his father, he would have never made it to the film industry. Also he revealed about how his father was his support system in every difficult situation of his life.
In one of the chapter of his biography, Karan became emotional where he mentioned about Yash Johar’s incurable illness and his demise. Not only Karan, Shah Rukh Khan too was heartbroken with the news then since he loved Yashji like his own father. SRK’s shared SRK’s reaction and wrote, “He just wept and wept, as if from his core. He cried and said, ‘I’ve lost one father, I can’t lose another.’”
