KARACHI: VisitBritain has proudly announced Bollywood Director Karan Johar as a Goodwill Tourism ambassador.
According to media sources, Johar is one of the renowned personalities of India who attended London Olympics opening ceremony as a VIP guest.
Chief Executive at VisitBritain Sandie Dawe said that they are happy to host Johar for the biggest sporting and cultural festival in the history.
He added, “Karan is an ideal global ambassador for our country, particularly as film tourism is such a heavy influencer in travel. He also recently produced a short film for us where he invites the people of India to visit Britain so we simply couldn’t have asked for a better seal of approval.”
Johar said, “I am extremely overwhelmed with the opportunity VisitBritain provided me. It was the chance of a lifetime and was undoubtedly the most spectacular and breath-taking live show I have ever seen! I feel lucky to have been part of this prestigious ceremony.”

For him London has always been a favourite place, be it for shooting or for simply relaxing.
