Karan Johar celebrated his 50th birthday on Wednesday (May 25, 2022). He left no stones unturned to make it extra special for himself. On Tuesday, he hosted a midnight party at home to ring in the special day with close friends and family. The guests in attendance included Gauri Khan, Farah Khan, Manish Malhotra, Maheep Kapoor and others.
