For the travel, Karan wore an all-black outfit, a denim jacket, white sneakers and sunglasses. Roohi opted for a black T-shirt, matching shorts, a pink jacket and sneakers. Yash was also dressed in an all-black outfit and white sneakers. As the paparazzi interacted with Karan, he responded to their questions.
After the family reached the parking area, Karan asked Yash and Roohi to say ‘namaste (hello)’ to the paparazzi with folded hands. He was seen showing them how to greet the paparazzi. After both the children obliged, Karan was seen nodding his head.
During his vacation in London, Karan met actor Alia Bhatt and fashion designer Manish Malhotra and posed for pictures with the duo. He also met actor Ranveer Singh. Karan also met actor Sara Ali Khan in the city as the two headed to a restaurant together but were turned away. Sara shared the video on Instagram and wrote, “When Karan Johar and me were left reservation-less and hungry, so had some KFC.”
At the entrance of the restaurant, Karan tried convincing a server that the two had a reservation, under Alia’s name. In the video, captured by Sara, Karan asked the server, “Is there a table booked in the name of Alia Bhatt?” The person replied, “No booking at the moment.” Karan again asked, “No booking? Not in her name for four people?” However, the person denied it again. As Karan went away giggling while looking into the camera, Sara told him, “There’s always a first time Karan. I think he said toodles to us. Bye, bye.”
