Apart from being a director, producer, chat show host, and RJ, his films can also evoke a certain nostalgia in any '90s kid who is also a Bollywood romantic movies buff. So here are 7 reasons why Karan Johar is a jack of all trades and masters them all :


Building Up An Empire - When the mantle of Dharma Productions was passed on to Karan after his father Yash Johar's demise, he established a banner that every actor today wants to be a part of. From big commercial movies with SRK to unconventional films like Lust Stories, Karan has done it all.

Director Par Excellence - The young filmmaker has a firm grip love, life, and relationships - subjects that he self-admittedly specializes in. From romance in Kuch Kuch Hota Hai, a family drama in Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham, the tragic love triangle of Kal Ho Naa Ho, mature and intense Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna to unrequited love in Ae Dil Hai Mushkil there's always a new facet of relationships that he portrays on screen.

Launching New Talents - Besides bankrolling various projects, Karan has also launched various new talents in the industry. Alia Bhatt, Varun Dhawan, Janhvi Kapoor, and Ishaan Khattar are the lucky few who have been launched by Karan's production. Not only actors, but Karan has also launched directors like Shashank Khaitan, Punit Malhotra, Abhishek Varman who have successfully made their mark at the box-office.

Lights, Camera...Koffee - After completing 5 seasons and ongoing season 6, Karan Johar's Koffee With Karan has become the longest running English chat show on Indian television. Known for its controversial conversations, fiery rapid fire and a steaming cup of coffee, the show is one of the most watched shows on television, all thanks to Karan and his clever ways of straining out gossips from his celeb friends.

Reality TV Favorite - Besides his chat show, Karan has proved to be a bankable name for reality TV as well. His good friend Kareena once said on his show two years ago, "Karan is there on all channels, all shows. You change the channel and he's there." Be with Jhalak Dhiklaja, India's Got Talent and India's Next Superstars, he brings panache to the floor.


In Front Of The Lens - Karan has proved he can be in front of the camera as well. From playing SRK's friend in DDLJ to being the main protagonist in Anurag Kashyap's Bombay Velvet, Karan has dipped his fingers in the stream of acting as well.


An Author And A Single Parent - Karan bared his heart and soul in his autobiography An Unsuitable Boy and proved to be an inspiration for those grappling with confusion and dilemma of coming out. The filmmaker also welcomed twins out of surrogacy once again setting an example for all the single parents.
