When Ashok met Karan

About the experience

Ashok and Ashwini’s start to the magical day included delightful conversations over brunch with Team Fankind. With bellies full, we led them to the next destination: Mr. Karan Johar's residence for an afternoon of conversations over coffee with the man himself! When they arrived at his home, they were surprised by Karan who opened the door to the apartment himself! He ushered them in with lots of love and hugs.

This marked the beginning of an afternoon of sheer fun – Karan first wanted to know all about their journey as a couple. As Ashok narrated the story, Karan chimed in with questions about the details – when, where, how, what! After lots of happy talk about Ashok and Ashwini’s honeymoon, their favorite films, their plans for the future, Karan started a game of “Heads Up”, which put his guessing skills and their acting skills to test. Having aced almost every movie that Ashok and Ashwini acted out, Karan put the focus back on his fans by playing a quick quiz to find out more about our winner's likes and dislikes - manufacturing lots of laughs and memories in the process. All in all, our favorite filmmaker directed some of the best moments of Ashok and Ashwini’s life.
