Acclaimed Indian film director, Karan Johar, has ceased to overcome his joy when he received an official invitation for the opening ceremony of the 2012 London Olympics.

Johar has witnessed one of the foremost proud moments of his life, as he and India's Prime Minister, Manmohan Singh, are the only two Indian nationals to have been given such an honor. The Prime Minister's invite was sent from his British counterpart, David Cameron, as a matter of protocol.

In the past, we have seen many of Johar's movies shot on location in Britain and it is fair to say he has captured some of the best too. This may partially be due to Johar being Visit Britain's official ambassador, who is also responsible for hosting the Indian filmmaker for the event. The Visit Britain authorities have maintained priority for the director in order for him to catch the opening ceremony in a special box reserved for the who's who of the world, where he will be in the company of 506 dignitaries at the biggest event in the world of sports.

It was said that Johar had mentioned only a few days ago that he would not be caught up in the London Olympics, despite it almost being his second home. However, the tables have now turned and he feels extremely honored and humbled by this invite, keeping excitement aside. He also went on to state that 2012 Olympics is going to be a conglomerate of an epic magnitude and its prestige is kept in high regard, so having a memory of participating in it as a spectator will stay with him for a lifetime. He concluded saying that this event is London's big-ticket and he's not about to miss if for anything in the world.

Although Johar has no particular interest in sports, he wishes to let his presence become the support of India's participating sports-persons and believes that the country will be well presented in the Olympics.

Johar has recently been kept busy with the shooting for Student of The Year, alongside judging the popular TV show, Jhalak Dhikla Ja 5; we hope this break does him wonderfully.
