Sharing the pictures, Karan wrote, “My brave and resilient mama turns 80 today… She taught me how to love …how to stand for what I believe in … never apologise or justify myself if I was in the right… never pretend to be anyone I wasn’t …. She is as much my conscience as she is my fashion police …. Also the only person who i am still scared of… I love you mom to the planets and back …. I would never have been able to raise Roohi and Yash without you…"
All from Malaika Arora, Ananya Panday, Tanishaa Mukerji to Tusshar Kapoor wished “Hiroo aunty” on her birthday. Shilpa Shetty wrote, “Happiest birthday to dearest Auntie wishing her more love and great health.” Shamita Shetty wrote, “Wishing aunty a beautiful birthday @karanjohar and great health and peace always.” A fan also commented on his post, “So nice.
