Karan Johar unable to attend Om Shanti Om premiere


By IndiaFM

The London premiere of Om Shanti Om seemed rather incomplete without Shah Rukh Khan's director Farah Khan and his best friend Karan Johar.

Neither could attend the event for personal rather. Farah Khan is not allowed to travel in her advanced stage of pregnancy. But Karan who has designed Shah Rukh's clothes in Om Shanti Om had to drop out at the last minute due to a family crisis.
"My mother's back problem got aggravated and she couldn’t travel. I had to take her for a series of medical tests. Otherwise I wouldn't have missed the event for the world. Shah Rukh is family and he had insisted my mom and I be there," said Karan emotionally whose absence at the London premiere was noticed.

Karan is currently preparing for his assistant Tarun Mansukhani to start a film featuring Abhishek Bachchan, Priyanka Chopra and John Abraham. "We haven't yet found a title for it," informs Karan. "And we're willing to listen to anyone who comes up with an apt title for this light frothy romantic comedy."

The liberating news is that Tarun Mansukhani's film needn't follow Karan Johar's tradition of 'K' titles."Yes, a non-K title will do. In fact I might end up giving my next directorial project a title without a K. Shocking? But isn't change the only way to survive in this business."
