And as always, the media was requested to be a part of the event and capture the cute moments and the huge Bollywood brigade that had turned up!
However, the photographers and journalists boycotted the event due to the mismanagement and rude behavior from Karan's team!
A source exclusively told International Business Times India: "Yes, the media has boycotted the bash after they failed to keep their promise. An official invitation was sent to all the photojournalists informing them about Karan hosting a birthday party for his kids at 4 pm at his home.
"The photographers were told a day in advance that they would be allowed to enter the building and click pictures of the guests and their kids upon their arrival," the source said. This is a usual arrangement celebrities have with photojournalists.
"But when they arrived at the venue, the guests drove their cars directly into the building without even stepping out for a second for the photojournalists," said the source.
The source further revealed, "The photographers even complained to and argued with Karan Johar
's publicists about the mismanagement, but to no avail. And when they learned that they would not get a chance to click proper pictures of the celebrities, they collectively decided to boycott the entire birthday celebration."
KJo welcomed his twins, Yash and Roohi on February 7, 2017 through surrogacy. While speaking about his two precious gems, in an earlier interview, he got emotional and revealed how he felt when he held them for the first time. He also penned down a heartfelt letter for them and read it on Shah Rukh Khan's show TED Talks.
"As you grow up, people will try to label you according to color, looks, religion, popularity and money. People will gossip about you, but know that no one can label you. Just because you are different, it doesn't make you wrong. You may be treated differently in school; mothers of your classmates will come to drop them, but you will have your father to take care of that. While most of your classmates' mothers will make a WhatsApp group to discuss your homework, I will be the only father in it," KJo read from the letter.
