A tribute will be paid to filmmaker Karan Johar at the Indian Film Festival of Melbourne (IFFM) as he completes 25 remarkable years in the industry.
The festival, taking place from August 11 to 20, will showcase Johar's exceptional contribution to Indian cinema by hosting a series of events and special screenings in his honour.
Talking about the same Johar said, "I am deeply honoured to be a part of the 14th Indian Film Festival of Melbourne. This year holds a special significance for me as I celebrate 25 years as a filmmaker, and I can't think of a better platform than this festival to commemorate this milestone in my career."
"Returning for the third time at the festival, I am overwhelmed by the love and support I have received from the Australian audience. The festival's curation of a special experience and celebrations to mark this momentous landmark in my journey fills me with a sense of joy and gratitude," said the filmmaker, who made his debut in 1998 with Kuch Kuch Hota Hai (1998).
"It is an opportunity for me to reflect upon the last 25 years as a filmmaker, the challenges, the triumphs, and the learnings that have shaped my artistic vision. I look forward to engaging in a special talk at the festival, where I will share insights and anecdotes from my journey, hoping to inspire and connect with fellow filmmakers and cinema enthusiasts," he added.
