One of the most successful directors of contemporary Bollywood, Karan Johar is known for making the kind of movies that strike a chord with audiences in India as well as abroad because of his characters and story line.

Born to Yash and Hiroo Johar, Karan made his Bollywood debut as an actor in the highly celebrated Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge, in which he played the lead actor Shah Rukh Khan's best friend. While acting in the film, Karan also worked in the capacity of an assistant director and costume designer for Shah Rukh Khan. Karan made his directorial debut at the young age of 25 when he made Kuch Kuch Hota Hai, a romantic triangle, which went on to become a major hit, especially among the youth. It not only won many awards but was also the highest grossing Indian movie of the year in India and abroad and was declared an all-time blockbuster by Box Office India.

Post the success of his directorial debut, there was no looking back and Johar teamed up with his good friend Shah Rukh Khan for many hit movies like Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham, a multi-star cast film, Kabhi Alvida Na Kehna, which dealt with the issue of adultery and My Name is Khan, a film which explored the controversial issue of racial profiling.

Apart from direction, Johar has also dabbled in production and has produced some of the hit films in Bollywood. Karan also tried his hand at talk show hosting with Koffee With Karan, which went on to become a hit show as far as youngsters were concerned.

Johar will come back to direction with Student Of the Year, which incidentally is Johar's first movie which does not star Shah Rukh Khan in the lead role. On the occasion of his birthday, here's wishing the inimitable Karan Johar a very happy birthday.
