For the trip, 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 answered their questions.
After the family reached the parking lot, Karan asked Yash and Roohi to say “namaste (hello)” to the paparazzi with their hands clasped. He was seen showing them how to greet the paparazzi. After the two kids obliged, Karan was seen nodding.
While on vacation in London, Karan met actor Alia Bhatt and fashion designer Manish Malhotra and posed for photos 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 I were left without reservations and hungry so we had KFC.”
At the entrance to the restaurant, Karan tried to convince a waiter that the two had a reservation, under Alia’s name. In the video, captured by Sara, Karan asked the waiter, “Is there a reserved table in Alia Bhatt’s name?” The person replied, “No reservations at this time.” Karan asked again, “No reservations?” Not in his name for four people? However, the person again denied. As Karan walked away laughing while looking at the camera, Sara told him, “There is always a first time Karan. I think he told us stuff. Bye Bye.”
